Writing and recording

The song was written by Billy Strange and Mac Davis specially for the movie Charro!.[2][3][6][7][8] [9]

The recordings took place at the Samuel Goldwyn Studio in Hollywood in October–November 1968. Presley probably overdubbed his vocals on October 15. Takes 5 and 9 were spliced together to form the vocal master.[2][10]


The song was first released on a single (in March 1969) with "Memories", a song from Elvis' 1968 NBC TV comeback special, on the opposite side.[4][6][1][11][12][13][14][15][16] "Charro!" didn't chart on the Billboard Hot 100, while "Memories" charted, peaking at number 35.

"Charro"'s first LP release was on the album Almost in Love in late 1970.[4][1]

On December 1, 1970 the single was re-released as part of RCA Victor's Gold Standard Series (together with 9 other Presley's singles).[17]

Musical style and lyrics

It is a western-style song.[18]
