Elvis Presley sometimes sang this at concerts; he version appears on his 1974 album Recorded Live On Stage In Memphis
and also on the compilation I Believe - The Gospel Masters
When Tom Jones
was appearing with Elvis in 1968 he got frustrated by the way The King constantly sang this song. Jones recalled to NME
May 19, 2012: "He kept singing, 'Why Me Lord?'. He just wouldn't let me get out of the room. He liked to sing all night. I had two shows to do the following day and I was trying to get out of the door... then he'd start singing it all over again."
