Presley, Elvis - Trying To Get To You Lyrics




I've been traveling over mountains
Even through the valleys, too
I've been traveling night and day
I've been running all the way
Baby, trying to get to you.

Ever since I read your letter
Where you said you loved me true
I've been traveling night and day
I've been running all the way
baby, trying to get to you

When I read your loving letter
Then my heart began to sing
There were many miles between us,
But they didn't mean a thing.

I just had to reach you, baby,
In spite of all that I've been through.
I kept traveling night and day,
I kept running all the way,
Baby, trying to get to you.

Well if I had to do it over
That's exactly what I'd do,
I would travel night and day,
And I'd still run all the way,
Baby, trying to get to you.

Well, there's nothing that could hold me
Or that could keep me away from you
When your loving letter told me
That you really loved me true

Lord above me knows I love you
It was He who brought me through,
When my way was dark as night,
He would shine His brightest light,
When I was trying to get to you.

Presley, Elvis Trying To Get To You Comments
  1. Eliane RAMASAMY

    damned!!!!!elvis come back and save the music

  2. poe12

    I'm sure 'he didn't die he just went home'

  3. Michelle Hoskins

    I was a little girl when my mom took my sister and I to see him in concerts 3 months before he died. He owned the room and I've never forgotten that night. ❤️❤️

  4. Jeremy shawn Foster

    Lord with then

  5. Scott

    There's only one king.

  6. Francisca Carvalho

    Que apresentação maravilhosa. Será sempre lembro com mútuo amor. Elvis firever.

  7. Ciaran Rooney

    this man has definitely got Irish roots handsome passionate self destructive. God bless you elvis the king forever

  8. Frank Cologne

    The Best Power ever!

  9. Lena Bussman

    Man l gotta go to Tennessee and go to Graceland. I just have to go. Wouldn't be right not to. I should check out the town l was born into. I love Tennessee. They don't have people like Elvis any more. I wish he would reincarnate and come back in my family. It would be so cool to have a little Elvis Presley running around. Lol

  10. Lena Bussman

    Oh my my that man is just the Shit!!! What a babe he was! No wonder women went nuts. He asked my mother out on a date when she was only 14 and she turned him down. Seriously. All her friends in Tennessee never let her live it down. Huge mistake on her part. Wow is he an amazing musician! His voice is smooth, the man was so sexy in that leather. My grandson looks so much like him at times it blows me away. My mother played his records non stop when l was growing up. Supposedly lm a distance cousin of the Presley family but l can't be sure unless l have my blood line traced. I am absolutely crazy over Elvis, so are my kids. I have been crazy over him my whole life. I don't know how people can't be when they hear him sing this song. And what a great song it is. It's such a dam shame that those dumb ass hillbilly good old boys got him screwed up and hooked on drugs. It pisses me off so much. He would have continued to make amazing music. You know the more l think about them more l hate dam drug dealers. Look we lost Elvis to drugs, we lost Prince also. Those where heavy weight huge music stars that had deep spiritual roots. They where both an interesting mix of spiritual and earth bound souls creating inspired music. Elvis was a innocent guy when he started out, then they got their hooks in him. It's hard for an artists to keep a pure spirit when they have the whole world tugging on them. I just Elvis.

  11. Richsrd Strahin

    One of Elvis best songs!!

  12. David Mitchell

    We can't all have the charisma of Elvis. Ok, none of us can.

  16. Kathy Harze

    I was 5 when Elvis died and I spent the next few decades thinking he was a caricature. Now I see The King. Holy hell.

  24. Ana

    This is the coolest performance EVER!

  25. Diana Hayse

    I loved everything about this show. Love you Elvis I'll never forget about you or your music. I happen to believe a lot misunderstood you in the beginning. And actually right up to the end. Anyway Elvis was in his element here doing what he did better than anybody could.....being himself...digging the music.

  26. Kriste Andrea Tujague

    2020 baby. He done Mississippi proud, that sexy beast. 💕

  27. Robert Parker

    I can't lie if I was there I'd prob be screaming just as hard as those little girls.." and I'm a tough guy myself.. yes sir.. but when the right one comes along"...

  28. cizia69

    Nothing better than this, nothing!

  29. Caballero K.

    Laine hardy got close but never will be this good

  30. david weaver

    If you put guys from the 50s when they were still in their prime in a room full of rock stars from the 1960s, 70s, on up until today, they would just loom over everyone.

  31. Fabienne S

    WOW HE IS SO AMAZING I LOVE YOU ELVIS!!!!!!!!

  32. Jammergirl68

    Everyone in that place was HAPPY! what a way to spend a night you'd never forget ! His shows were clean too and respectable and he's the greatest performer ever on the planet ! 🔥🎉

    This is better. Not because of the pitch difference, because of electric guitar.

  62. Anita Moberg

    It is an understatement to say that is the most wonderful man who ever has exist on this Earth.❤

  63. Thomas Gonder

    Okay, sure, I'm gay. Elvis is hot. But if I was a straight dude I would salivate. I mean, let's be honest. Not only the most unearthly talent unleashed here but his sex appeal only comes along once in a lifetime. Only Prince is the other artist that holds a candle to this incredible man. I remember his death being all over the news when I was six years old and my parents were upset. It's only in recent years i've explored his body of work and it is truly incredible. What a shame he died so young. Even now he'd be in is mid eighties had he lived. Staggering talent!!!

  64. Benjaman Harris

    He was really on it on this 68 special performance..

  65. Matthew Breen

    Elvis is AMAZING!

  66. Camila Rosward

    I've been traveling over mountains
    Even through the valleys, too
    I've been traveling night and day
    I've been running all the way
    Baby, trying to get to you.
    Ever since I read your letter
    Where you said you loved me true
    I've been traveling night and day
    I've been running all the way
    baby, trying to get to you
    When I read your loving letter
    Then my heart began to sing
    There were many miles between us,
    But they didn't mean a thing.
    I just had to reach you, baby,
    In spite of all that I've been through.
    I kept traveling night and day,
    I kept running all the way,
    Baby, trying to get to you.
    Well if I had to do it over
    That's exactly what I'd do,
    I would travel night and day,
    And I'd still run all the way,
    Baby, trying to get to you.
    Well, there's nothing that could hold me
    Or that could keep me away from you
    When your loving letter told me
    That you really loved me true
    Lord above me knows I love you
    It was He who brought me through,
    When my way was darkest night,
    He would shine His brightest light,
    When I was trying to get to you.

  82. Garrett Carpenter

    The absolute best of the best god was singing through him.

  83. Austin Shea

    You can still see Elvis live to this day in a church in AK that he pastors at. He knew the devil controlled the music industry and that is why he self medicated so hard because he felt trapped but on 8/16/1977 he found his way to escape and "Elvis" left the building for the last time. He lived ever since As (Robert) "Bob E Joyce" which initials would be R.E.J(oyce) Or REJOICE if you will! He did indeed REJOICE in the fact that he could leave the devil behind and get a 2nd chance at life to be FREE to worship and love his god and no longer a slave to the music Industry machine and all the sin that came with that life. He has been a preacher for many years now and when you look at this video you will have ZERO doubt that the man once known as Elvis indeed is still alive and Well and LOVING his new life with the lord of lords. Youre welcome in advance I hope all who read this dont just dismiss this message as a conspiracy and instead can learn from the man you all LOVED so much, a man who had EVERYTHING, Money, Fame, Power and any Woman he could have desired and gave it all away for a chance to redeem himself and feel the LOVE of JESUS. Amen and god bless all who read this, I hope Finding out that one of the greatest american treasures is still alive brings you as much Joy and hope as it did for me! https://www.youtube(DOT)com/watch?v=6tUbo4OPiig
