– A popular song originally published in 1965, “There Goes My Everything” was conceived by American country musician and songwriter Dallas Frazier. – It is no question that one of the best covers of the song is Elvis Presley‘s. The King of Rock & Roll certainly transformed this 1966 hit with a distinctly Presley touch. Elvis’ baritone vocals hitting his classic low notes perfectly suits his exceptional voice. – To note, Presley recorded his version on June 8, 1970, in Nashville, Tennessee. The following year, it reached no. 9 on the country charts. Additionally, his version also entered the pop charts as it peaked at no. 21 on Billboard Hot 100. Overall, it stayed there for nine weeks.
– “There Goes My Everything” talks about a couple who are breaking up because of an uncertain reason. In the song, the man narrates and describes his feeling as his lover is leaving him. Realizing that she really means a lot to him, he admits regret of not taking care of their once blooming relationship.
🎵 Let’s sing along with the lyrics! 🎤
There goes my only possession There goes my everything
I hear footsteps slowly walking As they gently walk across the lonely floor And a voice is softly saying Darling this will be goodbye for evermore
There goes my reason for living Oh,there goes the one of my dreams There goes my only possession Oh,there goes my everything
As my memory turns back the pages I can see the happy years we’ve had before Now the love that kept this old heart beating Has been shattered by the closing of the door
There goes my reason for living Oh,there goes the one of my dreams There goes my reason for living Oh,there goes the one of my dreams
There goes my only possession Oh,there goes my everything
