A Hundred Years from Now

3.7 / 5

Words & Music: Lester Flatt Earl Scruggs

Well a hundred years from now I won't be crying
A hundred years from now I won't be blue
My heart will have to forget that we ever met
But I won't care a hundred years from now

I'll never forget sweetheart the night you told me
That you could Live without my love somehow
That's all in the past I knew it wouldn't last
But I won't care a hundred years from now

I actually kinda love this! It's just unrehearsed and unplanned, but clearly a lot of fun. Like "Got My Mojo Workin'" or "Don't Think Twice", I find some of these moments to be more enjoyable (sometimes) than take 30 of a polished, finished product. Just Elvis having fun with a song he close to spontaneously sing off the cuff.

Just a joyous moment in the life of the King. Taped for the fun of it, we are lucky to be able to witness this. There was no purpose to it but have fun. So should we while listening to it. Nice as an in-between song.

I always enjoy hearing this. Its fun and in the same gendre as Little Cabin Home On The Hill.

Harmless version of a blue grass number by the one time kings of that sort of thing.

Always reminded me of "Little Cabin" as well...To critique this one is just plain silly. Fun and enjoyable for what it is.

I've always really enjoyed hearing Elvis' rendition of this song. This long lost Elvis recording was such a great find and it's always so much fun to listen to.

A great bluegrass song, more traditional then his take on Blue moon of Kentucky. It's understandable why RCA didn't put out this song, because it resembles A little cabin on the hill a bit too much.

Elvis at his best, when fooling around in spontaneously sing outs like this. I like this one where it runs into Little Cabin On The Hill. I think this would have been nice on the Elvis Country album too, back then.

Its an acceptable jam, but it is obvious why this wasn't released during elvis lifetime. 2 stars.

It's a jam. Nothing more or less. Elvis enjoying making music. 3 stars.
