Helen Did Elvis ever sing any folk songs? (22) RE: Did Elvis ever sing any folk songs? 17 Jul 21


Hi Lin,

The only one which comes to my mind is

Aura Lea

"The tune is familiar to modern audiences from the 1956 Elvis Presley #1 hit 'Love Me Tender' with new lyrics by Ken Darby, a derivative adaptation of the original. A later Presley recording for the film The Trouble with Girls entitled "Violet (Flower of N.Y.U.)" also used the melody of 'Aura Lea'."
