(Arnold / Morrow / Martin)

Elvis recorded This is the Story at the American Sound studios in Memphis on January 13, 1969. The song was composed by Chris Arnold, Geoffrey Morrow and David Martin.


Lyrics:


I play the song, it was our own

Your photograph's by my side
I know I can't forget you so I don't even try


The note you left is in my hand
I read again what you say
You're sorry but you love him and you've both gone away

1. This is the story of a man whose world has fallen apart
And it's the story that is breaking my heart

An open fire, our favourite chair
I get a book from the shelf
But the words I am reading could apply to myself

1. (repeat)

It's the story and it's breaking my heart
Yes, it's the story and it's breaking my heart
