(Walker / Pierce)


Information:
Wayne P. Walker and Webb Pierce wrote How Do You Think I Feel in 1954. One of the first recordings was by Jimmie Rodgers Snow later that year (RCA 47-5900). In December 1954, Scotty Moore recorded an instrumental version of How Do You Think I Feel at Sun Records with Bill Black on bass and Johnny Bernero on drums. The recording was never released.

 

Elvis recorded How Do You Think I Feel on September 1, 1956, at Radio Recorders. Take #7 was chosen by RCA for release.



Lyrics:

How do you think I feel?

Well, I know your love's not real
The girl Im mad about is just a gadabout
How do you think I feel?
How do you think we stand?
Well, I know you've made your plan
But you've included three
And that's too much for me
How do you think I feel?
I won't be true again
I know that I can't win
So why should I pretend
That you still love me?

How do you think I feel?

Well, I know your love's not real
The one Im mad about is just a gadabout
How do you think I feel?

How do you think I feel?

Well, I know your love's not real
The girl Im mad about is just a gadabout
How do you think I feel?
How do you think we stand?
I know you've made your plan
Another pretty face has put me out of place
How do you think I feel?
I won't be true again

I know that I can't win
So why should I pretend
That you still love me?

How do you think I feel?

Well, I know your love's not real
And you've included three
And that's too much for me
How do you think I feel?
