The Lyrics

'Almost Blue-Sueded"

Well, in juke joints and diners and barrooms
from “The Apple” clear to “La La Land,”
what your nickels will buy if dropped there
is a cover by “The King” and his band.

Now that’s okay, but I wish I were able
to hear oft’ner as I tipple and dine
in its place th’ orig’nal by Mister
Carl Perkins which I liked just fine.

And I would call those “first-rated,”
jukeboxes with Perkins inside --
almost Blue-Sueded
Elvis is, but falls wide.

When I spot a Rock-Ola® I feed two
sil’vry coins to play Carl if I can,
but if Elvis is offered I say “Pshaw! It’s
a shame that this cover ain’t banned.”

I’m more than almost pursuaded
Next to Carl, “The King”’s just a yawn.
"Almost Blue-Sueded"
is better said “thar’s no COM-par-i-son.”

© Stan Hall ... Actually I liked at the time and still like now most of the early -- we're talkin' pre-GI-early Elvis offerings, including his cover of "Blue Suede Shoes," to CP will always get my nod on that one.

Tricky twist of title to a grand old country ballad...gotta' love that phrase, "From The Apple to La La Land" ...great spoof, and although Carl did have the original...I'm sure he wasn't all that heartbroken, snappin' up all those writer royalties on the King's recording

couldn't agree with you more on two points...carl was vastly underated....and elvis did virtually nothing worthwhile musically after he joined the army

I agree with all above, with the one exception of Mr El 's medly of ~Battle Hymn & DixieLand.~ Was recorded in the 70's(?) He always performed it in Vegas: a very moving tribute to the U~S~A.
