While out and about promoting his newest album, the legendary Welsh singer, Tom Jones performs a tribute to his dear friend Elvis Presley...

Long Lost Suitcase is the 41st studio album for Jones and is a collection of enjoyable covers. "Elvis Presley Blues" was originally recorded by Gillian Welch on an album about American history and pays homage to the late King of Rock 'N Roll.  

Jones and Presley had been close friends for years when they both were at the top of the charts. They both had been fans of each other's music before they even met. Upon meeting, they were fast friends.

"Our friendship was built on mutual respect and a shared interest in music...we regarded each other as equals." Jones recalls during an interview.  

With Elvis' untimely passing in 1977 at the young age of 42, Jones had lost someone very close to him.

During a recent visit on Conan, the hitmaker remembers his friend through a powerful rendition of "Elvis Presley Blues"

LYRICS BELOW

I was thinking that night about Elvis
Day that he died, day that he died
I was thinking that night about Elvis
Day that he died, day that he died

Just a country boy that combed his hair
And put on a shirt his mother made and went on the air
And he shook it like a chorus girl
And he shook it like a Harlem Queen
He shook it like a midnight rambler, baby
Like you never seen, like you never seen, never seen

I was thinking that night about Elvis
Day that he died, day that he died
I was thinking that night about Elvis
Day that he died, day that he died

How he took it all out of black and white
Grabbed his wand in the other hand and he held on tight
And he shook it like a hurricane
He shook it like to make it break
And he shook it like a holy roller, baby
With his soul at stake, with his soul at stake, soul at stake

I was thinking that night about Elvis
Day that he died, day that he died
I was thinking that night about Elvis
Day that he died, day that he died

He was all alone in a long decline
Thinking how happy John Henry was that he fell down and died
When he shook it and he rang like silver
He shook it and he shine like gold
He shook it and he beat that steam drill, baby
Well bless my soul, well bless my soul

He shook it and he beat that steam drill, baby
Well bless my soul, what's wrong with me?

I was thinking that night about Elvis
Day that he died, day that he died
I was thinking that night about Elvis
Day that he died, day that he died

Just a country boy that combed his hair
Put on a shirt his mother made and he went on the air
And he shook it like a chorus girl
He shook it like a Harlem Queen
He shook it like a midnight rambler, baby
Like he never seen, never seen, like he never seen, never seen
