Underneath the foliage, in its bower set
Loveliest of the flowers of spring
Blooms the violet

(Violet, violet, flower of N.Y.U.)

We will ever sing thy praise
To thee we'll ere be true
(We'll be true)

Elvis sounds fine on this short snippet from "The Trouble With Girls" even though he does not start singing until after the phrase "blooms the Violet". A song that uses "Aura Lee" just as its melody just as "Love Me Tender" did.

I love this little ditty. Shame its not a longer song.

I also like this song and wish that it was a longer song

A piece of Love Me Tender, pleasant enough, but yes a throwaway.

no throwwaway here. Aura le was the base. As it was in LMT. And that fitted perfectly for the western genre as the original melody dated back to 1861.

Not as good as LMT, but a nice song nevertheless. I think Elvis starts singing from the beginning on.
