The Impossible Dream (The Quest), Elvis Presley

To dream the impossible dream
To fight the unbeatable foe
To bear the unbearable sorrow
To run where the brave dare not go

To right the un-rightable wrong
To be better far than you are
To try when your arms are too weary
The reach the unreachable star

This is my quest, to follow that star
No matter how hopeless,
No matter how far
To fight for the right
Without question or pause
To be willing to march into hell
For a heavenly cause

And I know if I'll only be true
To this glorious quest
That my heart will be peaceful and calm
When I'm laid to my rest

And the world would be better for this
That one man scorned and covered with scars
Still strove with his last ounce of courage
To reach the unreachable star

And the world would be better for this
That one man scorned and covered with scars
Still strove with his last ounce of courage
To reach the unreachable star

If I Can Dream (with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra), Elvis Presley

There must be lights burning brighter somewhere
Got to be birds flying higher in a sky more blue
If I can dream of a better land
Where all my brothers walk hand in hand
Tell me why, oh why, oh why can't my dream come true

There must be peace and understanding sometime
Strong winds of promise that will blow away
All the doubt and fear
If I can dream of a warmer sun
Where hope keeps shining on everyone
Tell me why, oh why, oh why won't that sun appear

We're lost in a cloud
With too much rain
We're trapped in a world
That's troubled with pain
But as long as a man
Has the strength to dream
He can redeem his soul and fly

Deep in my heart there's a trembling question
Still I am sure that the answer gonna come somehow
Out there in the dark, there's a beckoning candle
And while I can think, while I can talk
While I can stand, while I can walk
While I can dream, please let my dream
Come true, right now
Let it come true right now
Oh yeah


 Martin Luther d. 4. april 1968 og da Robert Kennedy blev dræbt 6. juni 1968 besluttede Elvis at indspille en sang, som en hyldest til disse og især Luther King.

If I can dream blev skrevet af Earl Brown og i denne er der flere referencer til Luther King, ikke

blot til den berømte "I have a dream" tale han holdt i Washington til 250.000 tilskuere.

(Se link herunder)

Elvis indspillede "Live a little love a little"  filmen på det tidspunkt og hans medskuespiller Celeste Jarnall fortalte senere, at hun så begravelsen sammen med Elvis i hans trailer og Elvis sad og græd.

King var ikke en stor beundrer af rock 'n' roll. Det havde han i øvrigt til fælles med Elvis, der blot ikke kunne slippe af med det image som king of rock ‘n’ roll, han havde fået i 50'erne. I 60'erne og 70'erne indspillede han ganske få numre sang dem yderst sparsomt ved koncerter og lyttede til og sang privat næsten kun gospel, ballads, folkpop folk og semi-opera o.l..
