Gently your eyes met mine
Tender, trusting, true
Gently your hand took mine
Thrilled me through and through

Gently, oh so gently
Gentle as the dawn
Gently, oh so gently
Our true love was born

Gently your lips kissed mine
As we strolled along
Gently your heart touched mine
Young and warm and strong

Gently the hour is near
When true loves have to part
Gently we'll meet again
One more kiss, sweetheart
Recorded: 1961/03/12, first released on Something for Everybody

A nice, gentle ballad with folk leanings that's well sung. One of my faves on the "Something For Everybody" LP. 4 stars.

4 star recording for Elvis. Never skip this one. Full album of this type would have been good. Still, we got half an album.

A nice ballad sung by Elvis with great, well what can I say gentleness. The song will hardly blow you away and you will probably forget it minutes after you hear it, but enjoyable enough to give a play now and again.

How can one not like this. Lie on your bed or in the grass with your loved one listening to this song. Sounds perfect, right?

A ballad with a folk influence delicately and wistfully performed by Elvis Never ever skip this track and I think it is greatly underrated.

This is such a beautiful and soothing ballad and Elvis' rendition of it is brilliant. I rate this song and Elvis' rendition of it 5 Stars.

Nice simple ballad to close out the ballad side of the record. But not my personal cup of tea.

The worst song on the LP "Something For Everybody" is still a pleasant well sung ballad. This one and "It's A Sin" are both a little too "gentle", but they are still worthy of 3 and 3 1/2 stars respectively.

Good recording, simply and nice, A full album of these would be nice, just sit back and relax. Rock numbers can wait.
