Love Me Tender
Chords And Lyrics
Demo Tips & Pdf

The melody of this tune comes from an old Civil War song called Aura Lee dates 1861. The lyrics were changed for Elvis's version in 1956 by Ken Darby. According to Darby, Elvis would often take a song and change around to fit his style as he didn't read music. The song was a #1 hit in the US and Canada.

Many artists over the years since have covered this song including Percy Sledge, Nat King Cole, Freddy Fender, Barry Manilow just to name a few.

The movie producer would not allow Elvis's bandmates Scotty Moore, Bill Black and JD Fontana to play on the recording so they were replaced with studio musicians.

Love Me Tender Lyrics

Love me tender, love me sweet ...never let me go
You have made my life complete ... and I love you so

Love me tender, love me true, all my dreams fulfill
For, my darling I love you, and I always will

Love me tender, love me long ... take me to your heart
For its there that I belong ... and we'll never part

Love me tender, love me true ... all my dreams fulfill
For, my darling I love you ... and I always will

Love me tender, love me dear ... tell me you are mine
Ill be your thru all the years ... til the end of time

Love me tender, love me true ... all my dreams fulfill
For, my darling I love you ... and I always will

For, my darling I love you ... and I always will
