New Music Monday – My Version of Elvis Presley’s “An American Trilogy”

Elvis Presley

Hell yeah…it’s New Music Monday! This week, it’s my version of Elvis Presley’s “An American Trilogy”:

If you can’t play the song or are on an iPhone or Android phone, click here.

An American Trilogy

Oh I wish I was in the land of cotton
Old things they are not forgotten
Look away, look away, look away Dixieland

Oh I wish I was in Dixie, away, away
In Dixieland I take my stand to live and die in Dixie

Cause Dixieland, that’s where I was born
Early lord one frosty morning
Look away, look away, look away Dixieland

Glory, glory hallelujah
Glory, glory hallelujah
Glory, glory hallelujah
His truth is marching on

So hush little baby
Don’t you cry
You know your daddy’s bound to die
But all my trials, lord will soon be over

Glory, glory hallelujah
Glory, glory hallelujah
Glory, glory hallelujah
His truth is marching on

  1. The King never dies!!! Also just looking at your blog archive. Is it really nearly 2 years since you started your blog – I’ve no idea where that time went to, it only seems like a flicker ago!!!

  2. Hey, Derek. That was good. I’d never heard that before. It was very passionate, which is what I like in my music. Thanks for sharing, as always.

    If I didn’t know you were Irish I’d swear you were a Southerner!
