Elvis Presley Song:
Help Me (1974)
(Music and lyrics by Larry Gatlin)
Help me is a gospel song Elvis did in 1974, both as a recording
and in live concerts. It was released on the B-side of the single
"If you talk in your sleep".
The chorus is:
"I never thought I needed help before;
I thought that I could do things by myself.
Now I know I just can't take it anymore.
With a humble heart, on bended knee,
I'm beggin' you, please, help me."
You can find this song on the CD Elvis Recorded Live on Stage in Memphis
Here is a clip of Help Me as performed by 24K Gold Music Shows:
Having so many impersonators for Elvis would be like a high number of backing choir members. Sing about the good times. I will always love Elvis as a father brother and son. All love and respect to Priscilla, Lisa Marie, family and friends. Elvis, your songs lift me higher. We live and learn as we go through the ages. I would have liked but I was just a kid. As a man of history you stood out in history. Like Abe Lincoln said, it's not easy to please everyone. Elvis, Abe, Priscilla, Lisa, you got me.|
Johnny Cash's beautiful version of "Help Me", on his posthumous album "American V: A Hundred Highways", recorded after his wife June Carter Cash died and just before Cash himself died, is the sound of someone truly begging for help.
