"Love Me Tender" is a song sung by Elvis Presley, to the tune of "Aura Lee" (or "Aura Lea"), a sentimental Civil War ballad with music by George R. Poulton and words by W.W. Fosdick. "Aura Lee" was published in 1861 and this Civil War song later became popular with college glee clubs and barbershop quartets. It was also sung at the U.S. Military Academy at West Point, New York. Elvis performed "Love Me Tender" on the The Ed Sullivan Show on September 9, 1956, shortly before the single's release and about a month before the movie, Love Me Tender, was released, for which the song was originally recorded. On the following day, September 10, 1956, RCA received 1 million advance orders for the song, making it a gold record before it was even released. The studio, 20th Century Fox originally wanted to call the movie "The Reno Brothers" but instead re-titled it to "Love Me Tender" to capitalize on.    Download this sheet!
