Its real nice to have for what it is, a tag on ending, but again not a complete song. I think a 1956 studio version of this would have been awesome and as good as Shake Rattle Roll.

This song is a true gem and Elvis' medley version of it was good, but it was just too short. Elvis should have professionally recorded a version of this song in the studio instead. Big Joe Turner has the very best rendition of this blues song by far.

Rightly or wrongly I have never considered this a real part of his music portfolio. Get Back with its incomplete lyrics means a lot more to me, and comes nearer that classification..

Elvis really did a 5 star job on this classic. I love it!

As part of the Shake, Rattle and Roll/Flip, Flop and Fly medley on the Dorsey shoe I give it all the stars that are in the heavens.

What are the lyrics to this song? They forgot to include it! ;-) ;-)

O course, the first time people got to hear this one from Elvis was on The Dorsey show in januari 1956.
