You Asked Me To
You Asked Me To was written by Billy Joe Shaver and first recorded by Waylon Jennings (RCA APBO-0086) in 1973. His recording reached #8 on Billboard's country chart.
Elvis recorded You Asked Me To at Stax Studios in Memphis on December 11, 1973. Felton Jarvis took Elvis's vocal and added a new backing track at Nashville's Young'Un Sound on October 14, 1980. The recording was then released on the Guitar Man LP and as a single. You Asked Me To had a 15-week stay on the country chart, peaking at #8, as had Waylon Jennings's version seven years earlier.
