I Can't Stop Loving You

download

(Gibson)


Information:
Don Gibson wrote I Can't Stop Loving You in 1957 in a mobile home in Knoxville, Tennessee. His recording (RCA 47-7133) hit number one on the country chart in 1958 sold over a million copies (as did the flip side, Oh Lonesome Me). Kitty Wells's version (Decca 30551) also charted in 1958 (#8 on the country chart). In 1962 Ray Charles included I Can't Stop Loving You in his best-selling LP Modern Sounds in Country and Western Music (ABC-Paramount ABCS-410), the first Gold album for ABC-Paramount Records. His single release from the album reached number one on the Hot 100 chart, rhythm and blues chart, and the Easy-Listening chart. I Can't Stop Loving You was the number one song of 1962 and a million-seller. Even Count Basie recorded an instrumental version of the song (Reprise 20170).

 

Elvis sang I Can't Stop Loving You in concert on quite a fez occasions, and in his 1973 TV special Elvis: Aloha From Hawaii. It is these live versions that appear on record.


Lyrics:

1. Well, I can't stop loving you, I said
I've made up, made up my mind
To live in memory of such an long, long time
And I can't stop loving you, well, it's useless, useless to say
So I'll just live my life in dreams of yesterday

Those happy moments, yeah, that we once knew
They're long ago, they still make, make me blue
They say that time it heals a broken heart
Yeah, but time has stood still, stood still s
ince we've been apart

 

1. (repeat)
In dreams of yesterday...
