Elvis tried recording this number during a February 1955 Sun session, but the result was unsatisfactory and that particular track has not resurfaced since. Several months later a new, this time successful attempt was made and the number was considered for release as a Sun single, though this never happened. Instead, RCA released the number on its own label, having taken over the track as part of their deal with Sun when they bought out Elvis's contract. The Eagles' recording was released in mid-1954 on Mercury 70391. (As an aside, it's interesting to note that Roy Orbison also recorded this track in 1955, when it was released on the Je-Wel label as the B-side of his original recording of "Ooby Dooby," a track he would later re-record at Sun.)

I've been traveling over mountains
Even through the valleys, too
I've been traveling night and day
I've been running all the way
Baby, trying to get to you.

Ever since I read your letter
Where you said you loved me true
I've been traveling night and day
I've been running all the way
baby, trying to get to you

When I read your loving letter
Then my heart began to sing
There were many miles between us,
But they didn't mean a thing.

I just had to reach you, baby,
In spite of all that I've been through.
I kept traveling night and day,
I kept running all the way,
Baby, trying to get to you.

If I had to do it over
That's exactly what I'd do,
I would travel night and day,
And I'd still run all the way,
Baby, trying to get to you.

There was nothing that could hold me
Or could keep away from you
When your loving letter told me
That you really loved me true

Lord above you know I love you
It was He who brought me through,
When my way was dark at night,
He would shine His brightest light,
When I was trying to get to you.
