Is it So Strange

download

(Young)

 

Information:
During the Million-Dollar-Quartet session of December 4, 1956, Elvis commented that Faron Young wrote Is It So Strange for him. But because Elvis wanted half of the publishing rights, Young recorded the song himself. Elvis sang Is It So Strange for Jerry Lee Lewis and Carl Perkins during the Million-Dollar-Quartet session.

 

On January 19, 1957, Elvis finally got around to recording the song at Radio Recorders. Take # 12 was released by RCA.


Lyrics:

Oh, if you tell a lie,
you know that I'll forgive you
Though you say our love is just a game
And when you hear my name
You'll say I'm from a strange world
But is it so strange to be in love with you
Is it so strange that I love you more than all the world
Is it so strange I have no eyes for any other girl
Oh, won't you take me back and say that you still love me
To waste a love like ours would be a sin
Let us kiss again, let me hold you near
And take me from this strange world
That I'm living in, oh...
