Words & Music: Thomas/ Biggs
I'm gonna sit right down and cry over you
I'm gonna sit right down and cry over you
And if you say good-bye
If you ever even try

I'm gonna sit right down and cry over you
I'm gonna love you more and more every day
I'm gonna love you more and more in every way
And if you say good-bye
If you ever even try

I'm gonna sit right down and cry over you
I'm gonna tell my mama tell my papa too
So they'll know exactly what I’m gonna do
And if you say good-bye
Say if you ever even try
Recorded: 1956/01/31, first released on Elvis Presley

Shorty Long on piano, doing a great job. Elvis sings it with so much fun. This is a 5 star track all the way.

This is such a fantastic, catchy and fun song and Elvis' rendition of it was spectacular. I've never skipped it. I rate this song 5 Stars and Elvis' rendition of it 5 Stars too.

A few one may think this is less than other songs from the fifties. For me this is definitely a 5+ star song. Here you will hear the young Elvis who in those early years turned everything in a fabulous, outstanding recording. The youthful spunky way of expressing this sentiment is sheer fun and a great joy to listen to. By the way, for me, even the 'lesser' songs from that period (and this one is not one of them) is worthy of a full 5 stars classification.

5 stars from me too ! It should have been released as a "single" back in 1956. It may have been on a 45 rpm extended play? I forget. It is a fun song to sing and dance to !

5 Stars !! I love this one, just like in one sided love affair Elvis has this wondeful playfullness in his voice.

A fine rockabilly song with that happy go lucky voice he used in the early part of his career. Probably downgraded by others here as it was surrounded by a plethora of 5 star efforts at the same sessions. I never skip this one and rate it very highly.

A nice tune showing Elvis' musical roots.

One of the overlooked recordings of 1956 rambled of admirably by Elvis. Not quite a classic, but an enjoyable rockabilly track from his classic first LP. It was January of 1956, and Elvis was still perfecting his style. Songs like this one and "One-Sided Love Affair" (recorded at the same session) are natural progressions from his Sun material to the classic July (1956) recordings that included "Don't Be Cruel" and "Hound Dog".

Not his best from the golden 50's but certainly a solid entry. Elvis loved Roy Hamilton and this was Roy's song originally. Elvis took it and made it his own with a rocking version as only he could do.

Elvis 1956, they said he would be a 3 month wonder. It's been the longest 3 months in history, the song, just great. I can play this one over & over. Yes, it was 1956 & for Elvis things would never be the same again.
