Give Me the Right
(Wise / Blagman)

Elvis recorded Give Me the Right on March 12, 1961, at RCAs Nashville studios. Fred Wise and Norman Blagman are the composers.


Give me the right
To hold you tonight
The tears that Ive cried over you
Give me the right

You can't say no
When I need you so
I want you back in my arms
Give me the right

If you looked deep in your heart
Like I looked into mine
You'll find that nothing has changed
Our love was there all the time

1. Why make me plead
For something you need
I want to bring back the thrill
Give me the right

1. (repeat)
Give me the right
