This was the last movie Elvis starred in before he joined the Army in 1958 and in fact the producer of the film had to ask the Army to give Elvis a 60 day grace period to complete the film, which they did allow. Elvis later said of all of the characters he played in his films, this character of Danny Fisher was his favourite.

Elvis Presley King Creole Lyrics

There's a man in New Orleans who plays rock and roll
He's a guitar man with a great big soul
He lays down a beat like a ton of coal
He goes by the name of King Creole

You know he's gone, gone, gone
Jumpin' like a catfish on a pole
You know he's gone, gone, gone
Hip-shaking King Creole

When the king starts to do it it's as good as done
He holds his guitar like a Tommy gun
He starts to growl from way down his throat
He bends a string and that's all she wrote

You know he's gone, gone, gone
Jumpin' like a catfish on a pole
You know he's gone, gone, gone
Hip-shaking King Creole

Well, he sings a song about a crawdad hole
He sings a song about a jelly roll
He sings a song about meat and greens
He sings some blues about New Orleans

You know he's gone, gone, gone
Jumpin' like a catfish on a pole
You know he's gone, gone, gone
Hip-shaking King Creole

Well, he plays something evil then he plays something sweet
No matter what he plays you got to get up on your feet
When he gets the rockin' fever baby, heaven sakes
He don't stop playin' till his guitar breaks

You know he's gone, gone, gone
Jumpin' like a catfish on a pole
You know he's gone, gone, gone
Hip-shaking King Creole

You know he's gone, gone, gone
Hip-shaking King Creole
