The melody used in this Elvis track is an old French song, "Auprès de Ma Blonde", which apparently dates back to the time of Louis XIV, when it was sung by the French infantry—hardly surprising, as the lyrics are somewhat bawdy and are certainly more suited to a bunch of soldiers than to its use as a children's song ("It feels good to sleep next to my blond girl...")! Eva Gauthier was a French-Canadian singer, born in 1885. Her recording career lasted from 1917 until 1935, during which time her songs were released on various labels. Her stirring version of "Auprès de Ma Blonde" was
recorded in New York for Victor in March 1918, but was not released until February 1919.
