Lyrics and chords:

Chorus  

                      F                             

They call me poor boy, poor boy, poor boy
                G7                            

But I ain't lonesome and I ain't blue
                        F                

'Cause I could never be a poor boy
                  G7                           

As long as I’ve got a darlin’ like you 

 

                  C                       G7 

Ain't got a crust, ain't got a cent 

                                                C      C7 

Can't buy a jug, can't pay the rent 

            F                 Fdim 

I got a heart full of dreams 

           C               A7 

And a lot of memories 

D7                               G7 

And that's enough for me 

 

Chorus 

                   C                       G7
Can't buy a house, can't buy a lot 

                                               C     C7
Ain't got a bean, I ain't got a pot 

                 F           Fdim
But what I got is a heart full of 

 C                   A7
Love and memories
        D7                      G7 

And that's enough for me

 

Chorus 


                      C                       G7
Don't have a pig, don't have a cow
                                             C     C7
I don't have a horse to pull a plow
                 F            Fdim
But what I got is a heart full of
C                   A7
Love and memories
         D7                     G7 

And that's enough for me 

 

Chorus 

 

                  G7                             

As long as I’ve got a darlin’ like 

I’ve got a darlin’ like  

                                

I’ve got a darlin’ like you

 

 

Recorded: 24 August, 1956

Trivia.
A guy called Ken Darby actually wrote all of the soundtrack songs for the movie, Love me tender. He credited this song to his wife, Vera Matson. Colonel Tom Parker decided to also credit Presley with the writing so he (Parker) could get a cut of the song royalties for his publishing company, Hill and Range.
