Jimmy Clanton is perhaps best remembered, if at all, for his starring role in Alan Freed's 1959 film "Go, Johnny, Go." He was drafted in 1961 but fared less well than Elvis, having just one post-service hit, "Venus In Blue Jeans," in late 1962. The latter number was, of course, the inspiration for that great British eccentric and rocker Screaming Lord Sutch's own "Monster In Black Tights"! His recording of "If I'm A Fool For Loving You" (no brackets) was released in June 1964 on the Philips label (Philips 40208) as the B-side of "A Million Drums."
Bobby Wood's recording of "If I'm A Fool For Loving You" (also without the brackets) was issued in April 1964 on Joy 285, but it is not known if his recording preceded that of Clanton's. Wood was a keyboard session musician; amongst the artists he backed were Elvis, for whom he worked on his 1969 "From Elvis In Memphis" album and other sessions. One of the numbers he played on for Elvis was "If I'm A Fool (For Loving You)."

If I'm a fool for loving you
that's just what I want to be

They're saying I am just your clown
and any fool could see
That you're just having fun
and you're not in love with me

The words they're saying may be true,
but there's something they can't see
If I'm a fool for loving you
that's just what I want to be

If I'm a dreamer, let me dream.
If I'm your clown I'll steal the show
If things are not the way they seem,
please don't ever let me know

If I am blind it's because
I just don't want to see
If I'm a fool for loving you
that's just what I want to be

If I'm a dreamer, let me dream.
If I'm your clown I'll steal the show
If things are not the way they seem,
please don't ever let me know

If I am blind it's because
I just don't want to see
If I'm a fool for loving you
that's just what I want to be

If I'm a fool for loving you
then that's just what I want to be

They're saying I am just your clown
and any fool could see
That you're just having fun
and you're not in love with me

The things they're saying may be true,
but there's something they can't see
If I'm a fool for loving you
that's just what I want to be

If I'm a dreamer, let me dream.
If I'm your clown I'll steal the show
If things are not the way they seem,
please don't ever let me know

If I am blind it's because
I just don't want to see
If I'm a fool for loving you
then that's just what I want to be

If I'm a dreamer, let me dream.
If I'm your clown I'll steal the show
If things are not the way they seem,
please don't ever let me know

If I am blind it's because
I just don't want to see
If I'm a fool for loving you
then that's just what I want to be

If I'm a fool for loving you
then that's just what I want to be
If I'm a fool for loving you.......
