Elvis and Red West with a fan backstage in Spartanburg, SC – Feb. 9, 1956

Red West was along on this tour and according to Peter did most of the driving, towing a little trailer cart for the instruments that Elvis’ father, Vernon, had made up and painted pink. Red wrote that “it looked more like a rolling toilet than anything else, but the way Elvis’ dad went on about that thing, you would have thought it was a goddamned yacht.”

You’ll Be Gone” is a song co-written by Elvis Presley and published by Elvis Presley Music and released in 1965 on the Girl Happy soundtrack album and as a 45 single. The song was recorded in 1962 and is significant because it was co-written by Elvis Presley, with his bodyguard Red West and Charlie Hodge.

“You’ll Be Gone” was released as an RCA Victor 45 picture sleeve single on February 9, 1965 as the B side with “Do the Clam“, as RCA Victor 47-8500. . “You’ll Be Gone” charted at no. 121 on Billboard. In Canada, “You’ll Be Gone” reached no. 16 on the singles chart as a double A side with “Do the Clam” in February, 1965 in a six-week chart run.

The A side “Do the Clam” reached no. 21 on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart and remained on the chart for 8 weeks.  21 on Billboard in the United States, no. 15 on the Record World chart, no. 16 in Canada, and no. 19 in the UK.[2][3] It was very successful in Australia, where it reached no. 4 on the charts.[4] It has appeared on six compilation albums of Elvis Presley’s recordings. Co-writer Dolores Fuller is perhaps best known for her role as the title character’s girlfriend in Ed Wood‘s 1953 surrealist film, Glen or Glenda.

It is possibly the dirtiest ditty that Elvis did, and few noticed being a movie song.

Elvis closed out what had been a generally good engagement, in which he had been described as being “in good humor” and “at the top of his form”. At the same time he had continued to exhibit the kind of erratic personal behavior that had shown up increasingly over the past year, like shooting out a chandelier and several television sets.
