LOVE IS IN DA BLOG 10 ~ A LOVE SONG FROM 1949-1958 – “Love Me Tender” & “You Send Me”

Of course the 1950’s gave us the one and only Elvis Presley, whom my mother loved and cried like a baby when he died, and we received Sam Cooke. Both of these artists were instrumental in their own right in forming how the country saw music of the era and their legacies are still relevant today.

For today’s prompt I have chosen Elvis Presley’s Love Me Tender from 1956 and Sam Cooke’s You Send Me from 1957. Enjoy!!!!


Lyrics – Love Me Tender
Love me tender, love me sweet
Never let me go
You have made my life complete
And I love you so
Love me tender, love me true
All my dreams fulfill
For my darling I love you
And I always will
Love me tender, love me long
Take me to your heart
For it’s there that I belong
And will never part
Love me tender, love me true
All my dreams fulfill
For my darling I love you
And I always will
Love me tender, love me dear
Tell me you are mine
I’ll be yours through all the years
‘Til the end of time
Love me tender, love me true
All my dreams fulfill
For my darling I love you
And I always will
Songwriters: Elvis Presley / Vera Mats
Lyrics – You Send Me
Darling, you send me
I know you send me
Darling, you send me
Honest you do, honest you do
Honest you do, whoa
You thrill me
I know you, you, you thrill me
Darling, you, you, you, you thrill me
Honest you do
At first I thought it was infatuation
But, woo, it’s lasted so long
Now I find myself wanting
To marry you and take you home, whoa
You, you, you, you send me
I know you send me
I know you send me
Honest you do
Whoa-oh-oh, whenever I’m with you
I know, I know, I know when I’m near you
Mm hmm, mmm hmm, honest you do, honest you do
Whoa-oh-oh, I know-oh-oh-oh
I know, I know, I know, when you hold me
Whoa, whenever you kiss me
Mm hmm, mm hmm, honest you do
At first I thought it was infatuation
But, woo, it’s lasted so long
Now I find myself wanting
To marry you and take you home
I know, I know, I know you send me
I know you send me
Whoa, you, you, you, you send me
Honest you do
Songwriters: Sam Cooke

  1. Ah, great artists and great songs. I was 7 when Elvis passed away and didn’t understand a thing. But later on got the gist. Both artists passed away in such sad circumstances. Just proves that success isn’t everything! ๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿ
