4.0 / 5

Words & Music: Don Robertson

My love I offer you now
My heart and all it can give
For just as long as I live I’m yours
No arms but yours dear will do
My lips will always be true
My eyes can only see you, I’m yours

And as the years roll along
Your joy and tears I’ll gladly share
And when things go wrong dear
Just hold out your hand and I’ll be there
With every beat of my heart
With every breath that I take
Now and forever, sweetheart, I’m yours

Nice song but to be released in 1965 as a single?. Totally out of touch with the current pop charts at the time, it sold well but couldnt compete with The Brits and Motown for my teenage pals at the time. Good for 1962 where it belonged,

A solid ballad recorded for the LP "Pot Luck". This song has never been one of my favorites and I much prefer most of the other ballads from the is period (60-64). Still it is a strong effort with good vocals and it is pleasant. It was a surprise hit in the Summer of '65 getting to #11 on the pop chart and spending 3 weeks at #1 on the easy listening chart after having been featured in the movie "Tickle Me".

From one of my favourite albums and songwriters.The song was dated when released as a single in the states(never released over in the UK) but it appeared to sell fairly well there. A good ballad which has been neglected for years.

Never cared for it. As I have said before, his voice was at its peak in 1962, too bad the material wasn't. As for a single in 1965, this came out about the same time as Ticket To Ride, Satisfaction and Like A Rolling Stone. No new studio material in 1965 with a current sound says it all.

This song is different from anything Elvis recorded before or after. "The King" would continue to fascinate us his entire career.

Liked it the first time I heard it, and has found its way on to many of my playlists. The voice was totally suited to this type of ballad which sold a million when belatedly released as a single in 1965. I don't know if I prefer the duet on the great Pot Luck album with the spoken vocal or the US single without the duet or spoken word.- either way 4 stars.

This is such a beautiful and underrated ballad and Elvis' rendition of it was magnificent. The other thirteen songs that Elvis recorded that were written by Don Robertson are "Anything That's Part Of You", "I Met Her Today", "I Really Don't Want To Know", "I Think I'm Gonna Like It Here", "I'm Counting On You", "I'm Falling In Love Tonight", "Love Me Tonight", "Marguerita", "No More", "Starting Today", "There's Always Me", "They Remind Me Too Much Of You" and "What Now, What Next, Where To".

I should not like this one with that awful organ sound, but I do. Sounds like Ask me.

Too bad the '65 single version didn't include the spoken part in the middle of the song. "I'm Yours" tongue-in-cheek lyrics from Elvis to Colonel Parker ~ My career I offer you now My heart and all it can give For just as long as I live, I’m yours No ideas but yours, sir, will do My talents will always be true My eyes can see only you, I’m yours And as the years roll along Your contracts and deals I’ll gladly share And when things go wrong, sir Just hold out your hand, and I’ll give more With every beat of my heart With every breath that I take Now and forever, Colonel Tom, I’m yours

I really like this song. I wish the "spoken part" had stayed in, when it was released as a single. It seems awkward without it. Elvis Radio on Sirius-XM Radio-plays the song all the time, minus the spoken part. I wonder if they know the spoken part exists?

I do not think the spoken part was left off by mistake, as it was for the soundtrack Tickle Me. The spoken part probably would hot have worked well in the movie, nor would have the self harmonizing.

Recipe for the perfect spliced version of this song . . . Part One = undubbed vocal version in stereo 0:00 - 1:32 , Part Two = "Pot Luck" album version 'spoken part' in stereo 1:32 - 1:54 , Part Three = remainder of undubbed vocal version in stereo 1:54 - 2:21. An Elvis friend of mine in England did it for me (using help from his computer) onto a CD-R. Thanks, John!

Luv "The Memphis Fan's" substituted lyrics; funny. Ok, a memorable song to be blunt. I like it plain and simple. Funny Elvis had a knack for going with the spoken middle.

This is a great vocal-performance, but an average song at best. 3 stars.

I've liked this song since I first heard it on the Pot Luck LP. I prefer the LP version. Although, I did buy the single version. The "awful" organ doesn't bother me. 4 stars.

It is easily one of Elvis' better ballads. I go for the album master! 5 stars from me!

A nice ballad like almost all the "Don Robertson" songs he recorded. I prefer the album version. Although a bit dated for 1965, it was more successful than his "new" songs released as singles at the time. It says a lot about the quality of his mid 60's recordings. Looking back I cannot understand why he did not have a non soundtrack recording session for more than 2 years. At a time when pop music was rapidly evolving, Elvis was releasing dreadful (by his standards) soundtrack albums and singles recorded years before! 4 stars from me.
