(Smith & Dixon)

Informação:
Big Boss Man foi escrita por Al Smith e Luther Dixon e gravada por Jimmy Reed em 1961. A sua gravação (Vee Jay 380) alcançou a 13ª posição na tabela de rhythm & blues da Billboard e a 78ª posição na tabela Hot 100. Em 1964 Gene Chandler gravou a canção com o título Soul Hootenanny (Constellation 114).

Elvis gravou Big Boss Man em 10 de setembro de 1967, nos estúdios da RCA em Nashville. O seu lançamento em single teve uma permanência de seis semanas na tabela Hot 100, chegando à 38ª posição. Elvis cantou Big Boss Man como medley no seu especial televisivo de 1968, Elvis. Tanto as faixas instrumental como vocal foram gravadas no Western Recorders de Hollywood, em 20 ou 21 de junho de 1968.

Letra:

Big boss man, can't you hear me when I call?
Big boss man, can't you hear me when I call?
Can't you hear me when I call?
Can't you hear me when I call?
Well you ain't so big, you know you're just tall that's all, all right
Yeah, you got me workin' boss man
Workin' round the clock
I wanna little drink of water
But you won't let big Al stop
Big boss man now can't you hear me when I call? All right
I said you ain't so big, you know you're just tall that's all
 
Big boss man, ah can't you hear me when I call? All right
You know you ain't so big, I said you're just tall that's all, All right
I'm gonna get me a boss man
The one who's gonna treat me right
I work hard in the day time
Rest easy at night
Big boss man, can't you hear me when I call? Can't you hear me when I call?
I said you ain't so big, you're just tall that's all, all right
I'm gonna get me a boss man
The one that's gonna treat me right
I work hard in the evenin'
Rest easy at night
Big boss man, big boss man, can't you hear me when I call?, all right
I said you ain't so big, you're just tall that's all
All right, all right, all right
