That's All Right
Elvis Presley Lyrics


Well, that's alright now mama
That's alright with you
That's alright now mama, just anyway you do
That's alright, that's alright
That's alright now mama, anyway you do

Well mama, she done told me, papa done told me too
"Son, that gal you're foolin' with
She ain't no good for you"
But that's alright now, that's alright
That's alright now mama, anyway you do

I'm leaving town, baby
I'm leaving town for sure
Well, then you won't be bothered with me hanging 'round your door
Well, that's alright, that's alright
That's alright now mama, anyway you do

Ah dala dee dee deelee
Dee dee deelee
Dee dee deelee, I need your lovin'

That's alright
That's alright now mama, anyway you do

Well, that's all right, mama
That's all right for you
That's all right mama, just anyway you do
Well, that's all right, that's all right
That's all right now mama, anyway you do

Mama she done told me
Papa done told me too
'Son, that gal your foolin' with
She ain't no good for you
But, that's all right, that's all right
That's all right now mama, anyway you do

I'm leaving town, baby
I'm leaving town for sure
Well, then you won't be bothered with
Me hanging 'round your door
Well, that's all right, that's all right
That's all right now mama, anyway you do

On the night of July 7, 1954, Memphis disc jockey Dewey Phillips played a brand-new recording of the song “That’s All Right” sung by 19-year-old Elvis Presley, who lived there in Memphis. Right away, listeners starting calling, demanding that he play it again, asking exactly what kind of music it was – blues? rock ’n’ roll? – and wanting to know more about the singer.

Dewey played the song fourteen times that night. During one break, he called the Presley home, wanting to get Elvis down to the studio for an interview. Elvis, who’d been told that his record might be on the radio, had been too nervous to listen. “I thought people would laugh at me,” he later explained. So he’d gone to the movies.

Dewey asked his mother to find him, saying, “I played that record of his, and them birdbrain phones haven’t stopped ringing since.” Mr. and Mrs. Presley hurried to the theater, searched the dark rows, found their son, and hustled the boy off to WHBQ for the interview.

As a child, Elvis Presley soaked up gospel music at church. He listened to country music on The Grand Ole Opry radio show, blues singers on the streets of Memphis, spirituals at tent revivals, symphony orchestra concerts in the park, opera on the family’s wind-up Victrola.

“What kind of singer are you?” the manager of a Memphis recording studio asked him when he made his very first record. “Aw, I sing all kinds,” he answered. “Who do you sound like?” she  pressed. “I don’t sound like nobody,” he insisted.

His answer was more than youthful boasting. Presley’s unabashedly original style embraced all kinds of American music and crossed all borders of race, class, and region. As biographers have noted, that democratic principle of his music helped win legions of fans.

I'm from Detroit (blow the reveille)!
Most of you probably know this story.
Elvis was not an instant star when he walked in to Sun Studios to record a song for his mother. Sam Phillips thought he had something in this kid. But, they spent months rehearsing, trying to find the right vehicle for him (with no success).
One night, after a long session, Elvis sat down at the piano and started singing an 'irreverant' version of Arthur Crudup's 'That's All Right (Mama)'.
He was using that style of singing we all came to know & love;
Where you could HEAR the 'hip-shakin' in his voice.
Scotty Moore: "What's that your doin'?"
Elvis: "Oh, man. I'm just goofin' it."
Scotty: "Do it again. I'll try to add some guitar to it."
Then, Sam stuck his head out of the booth:
"What's that your doin'?"
Elvis (same response): "Oh, man. I'm just..."
Sam: "Well do it again and I'll tape it."
AND ELVIS ROCK AND ROLL WAS BORN!
- Dave B.

@Omid Nawazi you ,like your name is some jerk

@SlayFNX he knew where it came from. Give me a break. He heard it on a record. You know black folks made records back then they called them race records. He knew exactly where it all came from. It was classic cultural appropriation... It was Jim Crow days still..... Elvis became the king ... And they lived in obscurity until better days came... Elvis got his moves from Jackie Wilson and others....

@Devin Bret Elvis couldn't have done this, first of all elvis wouldn't have known at the time that arthur crudup was the one who wrote the song he just started singing an old blues song he knew from tupelo and then it sorta just clicked
