My Spin

(Just my opinion. Give us yours!)

The ballad "I'm Yours" was originally recorded in 1961 and included on Elvis' 1962 album Pot Luck. Three years later, it was resurrected for the soundtrack of Tickle Me and released as a single, making it to the top of the Easy Listening chart and into the Top 20 on the Pop chart. The original album version has Elvis harmonizing with himself on an overdub vocal, along with a spoken part in the middle. The later single version leaves out both of these. As with most of his ballads from the early '60s, Elvis delivers the goods on this recording, and he's in fine voice. The album version with his overdubbed harmony is especially appealing.

Other Spins

(What did the critics and fans say?)

"I'm Yours" is outstanding; a slow arrangement of this fine song. Floyd Cramer, this time on organ, adds a superb part.

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

Similar to "Ask Me", but without the Jordanaires, this was an unusually slow, straight-from-the-heart love song.

Martin Torgoff, The Complete Elvis, 1982

"I'm Yours" Lyrics and Downloads

My love I offer you now
My heart and all it can give
For just as long as I live I'm yours
No arms but yours dear will do
My lips will always be true
My eyes can see only you, I'm yours

And as the years roll along
Your joy and tears I'll gladly share
And when things go wrong dear
Just hold out your hand and I'll be there
With every beat of my heart
With every breath that I take
Now and forever, sweetheart, I'm yours
