Tryin' to Get to You

(Singleton / McCoy)

Tradução »
 

Informação:

Tryin' to Get to You foi escrita por Rose Marie McCoy e Margie Singleton e gravada pela primeira vez pelos Eagles (Mercury 70391) em meados de 1954.

 

Elvis tentou gravar Tryin' to Get to You em 5 de fevereiro de 1955, na Sun Records, mas a gravação não foi satisfatória. Elvis finalmente conseguiu uma gravação satisfatória em 11 de julho de 1955. Essa versão foi lançada pela RCA no LP Elvis Presley. Tryin' to Get to You foi a única gravação da Sun por Elvis a usar piano, que provavelmente foi o próprio Elvis a tocar. Frank Tolley da banda de Malcolm Yelvington também tem sido mencionado como sendo o pianista. A apoiar Elvis estiveram Scotty Morre (guitarra), Bill Black (contrabaixo) e Johnny Bernero (bateria). O lançamento em single de Elvis em 1956 de Tryin' to Get to You não entrou para as tabelas. Em 27 de junho de 1968, Elvis gravou a canção para utilização no seu especial televisivo, Elvis, mas não foi utilizada.


Letra:


I've been travelling over mountains even through the valleys, too

I've been travelling night and day, I've been running all the way
Baby, trying to get to you
Ever since I read your letter where you said you loved me true
I've been travelling night and day, I've been running all the way
Baby, trying to get to you

When I read your loving letter then my heart began to sing
There were many miles between us but they didn't mean a thing
I just had to reach you, baby, in spite of all that I've been through
I kept travelling night and day, I kept running all the way,
Baby, trying to get to you

Well, if I had to do it over that's exactly what I'd do,
I would travel night and day and I'd still run all the way,
Baby, trying to get to you
Well, there's nothing that could hold me, or could keep me away from you
When your loving letter told me that you really loved me true

Lord above He knows I love you, it was He who brought me through,
When my way was dark at night,
He would shine His brightest light,
When I was trying to get to you
