Where were you the first time you saw him? If you never saw him ...that's your misfortune. Oh...lets see first time Barbara and I saw him...it was at the International Hotel in Las Vegas.....oh my..Elvis
WHERE WERE YOU THE FIRST TIME YOU SAW HIM?
He caused us to be late for church.
My cousin Mona, Janet, and I were at Aunt Mertie’s house. He caused us to be late for Sunday night church. He was to appear on the Ed Sullivan show that night, and we begged and pleaded with Aunt Mertie to just let us see him for a little bit, then leave.
Later that night I had to explain to my dad why we were late for church. He did not seem to think my reasoning was nearly as good as I did.
I remember where I was the first time I saw Elvis. He sang Blue Suede shoes and when the song was over I knew things would never be the same.
Where a stranger was just someone I did not know.
With dreams of far off places and old guitars
Fell asleep listening to the all night radio.
I know some things must end, I don’t know where I fit in
Still reelin’ from those rock n roll day.

This coming Sunday, January 8, 2012, is Elvis’s birthday. Elvis was born on January 8, 1935. He would have been 77 years old, but not so to those of us from the 1950s’. Elvis never got old, and he never died. No, but things have never been the same…
