My Spin

(Just my opinion. Give us yours!)
A nice little upbeat Clyde McPhatter tune, Elvis' version of "Come What May" deserved more attention than it got in 1966.

I'll get around to writing my spin soon, so stay tuned. Browse the other stuff below in the meantime.

Other Spins

(What did the critics and fans say?)


With "Come What May" we encounter a song which was out of date even when it was recorded. It is a fast rocker, but the production, to a generation used to the sounds of Phil Spector, is raw and messy.

Robert Matthew-Walker, Elvis Presley: A Study in Music icon, 1979

"Come What May" Lyrics and Downloads

I am yours and you are mine, come what may
Love like ours remains divine, come what may
Even though we're miles apart
You're living in my lonely heart
At night the teardrops start and pour the long long day

I keep your picture near me since you went away
I plant a kiss upon your lips each night and day
Bear in mind and you will find a heart that is true
And I'll be here with you come what may

I keep your picture near me since you went away
I plant a kiss upon your lips each night and day
Bear in mind and you will find a heart that is true
And I'll be here with you come what may
And I'll be here with you come what may
And I'll be here with you come what may
Come what may
Come what may
