Welcome into my Elvis Presley Love Me chords and lyrics page from 1956. Below is my free pdf, acoustic demo, lyrics to the song, a purchase link to the full lesson and a clip of Elvis singing this one on the Ed Sullivan show from 1956.
Oddly enough, this song was recorded by other artists in 1954 and 1955 but no one had a hit. Elvis did the song in 1956 and tho was was on an album and not released as a single, it hit #2 on Billboards Hot 100 and #7 on the R&B charts. That was a first in the music biz. They didn't want it confused with "Love Me Tender".
Robert plant from Led Zeppelin told Elvis they rarely did sound checks for concerts but if they did, he'd warm up singing old Elvis songs. When Elvis asked him which ones, this song was one of them, along with treat Me Nice and others. When Elvis left the 90 min meeting he spun around and started singing "treat me like a fool" and Plant responded "treat me mean and cruel, but love me". Elvis got a kick out of that.
