JAILHOUSE ROCK (Soundtrack) Songs from the film "Jailhouse Rock" (1957) Starring Elvis Prsley, Judy Tyler and Mickey Shaughnessy ONE MORE DAY (Sid Tepper / Roy C. Bennett) Performed by Mickey Shaughnessy I'm up in the mornin' with the risin' sun I work like a slave till the day is done Just workin' and sleepin' and nothin' more And ev'ry day is just like the day before One more day One more day One day older and nearer to my Lord One more day Listen to the prayer of a lonely man Livin' day by day the best he can Give me the strength to carry my load Glory waits for me at the end of the road One more day One more day One day older and nearer to my Lord One more day ********** YOUNG AND BEAUTIFUL (1st Version) (Abner Silver / Aaron Schroeder) Performed by Elvis Presley You're so young and beautiful and I love you so Your lips so red, your eyes that shine shame the stars that glow So fill these lonely arms of mine and kiss me tenderly Then you'll be forever young and beautiful to me *********** I WANT TO BE FREE (Jerry Leiber / Mike Stoller) Performed by Elvis Presley & The Jordanaires There's no joy in my heart, only sorrow And I'm sad as a man can be I sit alone in the darkness of my lonely room And this room is a prison to me I look out my window (I want to be free) and what do I see (I want to be free) I see a bird (I want to be free) way up in the tree (I want to be free) I wanta be free (Oh yes), free (Oh yes), free-ee-ee-ee I wanta be free like the bird in the tree (Wanta be free) Oh, what good are my eyes, they can't see you And my arms, they can't hold you so tight I have two lips that are yearning, but they're no good to me 'Cause I know I can't kiss you tonight I look out my window (I want to be free) and what do I see (I want to be free) I see a bird I want to be free) way up in the tree (I want to be free) I wanta be free (Oh yes), free (Oh yes), free-ee-ee-ee I wanta be free like a bird in a tree (Wanta be free) I wanta be free like a bird in a tree (Want to be free) ********** DON'T LEAVE ME NOW (1st Version) (Aaron Schroeder / Ben Weisman) Performed by Elvis Presley Don't leave me now Now that I need you How blue and lonely I'd be If you should say we're through Don't break my heart This heart that loves you There'd just be nothin' for me If you should leave me now What good is dreamin' If I must dream all alone by myself Without you darlin' My arms would just gather dust Like a book on a shelf Come to these arms These arms that need you There'd just be nothin' for me Don't leave me now **********

should leave me now (Don't leave me now) What good is dreamin' If I must dream all alone by myself Without you darlin' My arms would gather dust (Like a book on a shelf) Come to these arms (Come to these arms) These arms that need you (Ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh) Don't close your eyes to my plea Don't leave me now (Don't leave me now) Don't close your eyes to my plea Oh, don't you leave me now (Don't you
