Well, you're right, I'm left, she's gone You're right, and I'm left all alone Well, you tried to tell me so But how was I to know That she was not the one for me?
You told me all along You're right, our love was so wrong But now I changed my mind Because she broke the ties that bind And I know that she never cared for me
Well, I thought I knew just what she'd do I guess I'm not so smart Oh, you tried to tell me all along she'd only break my heart I'm left, you're right, she's gone You're right, and I'm left all alone
Well, she's gone I know not where But now I just don't care For now I'm falling for you
If you'll forgive me now I'll make it up somehow So happy we will be In a home just for three And I'll soon forget her now I know
Well, I thought I knew just what she'd do I guess I'm not so smart You tried to tell me all along She'd only break my heart
Well, you're right, I'm left, she's gone You're right, and I'm left all alone Well, she's gone, I know not where But now I just don't care For now I've fallen for you

Bill Sturrock from Newcastle, UkHe was indeed talking to a girlfiend, whom he had known for a long time - maybe even a past lover - who had warned him to beware of the one who deserted him. At the end he has fallen for this new love. Good on him and his new love! Great song. Early hiccuping vocal which Buddy Holly adopted and later turned into an art form!
Jon Olsen from MaineYou missed a major point. He was not talking to a buddy, but his NEW girlfriend to be. The concluding line is "Now I'm falling for you." This is my all time favorite Elvis song.
Jennifur Sun from RamonaOne of my fav Scotty guitar licks. An old fav of mine.
