Don’t Cry Daddy
The A-side of the new single, the third to be taken from the Memphis sessions, was once again written by Mac Davis, on the verge of a notable solo career of his own. “Don’t Cry Daddy” was more sentimental than “In The Ghetto” – or at least less socially conscious – but it was once again a perfect emotional fit. It elicited a fine performance from Elvis and was a great commercial success, with sales matching the level of the first two at 1.2 million and chart position only slightly lower, due largely to the Christmas competition.
