Glad this Elvis’ song was found and released in 2003. I Love the song !
“I’m a Roustabout” is a song from the 1964 musical film “Roustabout,” starring Elvis Presley. The song was written by Winfield Scott and Otis Blackwell and performed by Elvis Presley.
The film tells the story of a singer named Charlie Rogers (played by Elvis Presley) who joins a traveling carnival as a roustabout. In the film, “I’m a Roustabout” is performed by Presley during a scene where Charlie is working as a carnival worker.
The lyrics of the song describe the life of a roustabout, someone who performs manual labor tasks in a carnival or circus. The song’s chorus goes:
“I’m a roustabout, don’t you forget I work hard with my two hands I’m a roustabout, steady as a get And I work as hard as my two hands can”
The song became a hit, reaching #11 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in 1964. It has since become a classic Elvis Presley song, and is often featured on compilation albums of his music.
