There is a rather obvious "but" here, which is not one we necessarily want or like to consider. It could be that, as with When My Blue Moon Turns to Gold, The Wonder of You, Hey Jude, Stand by Me, and others, he simply didn't know the whole song. It's a very unromantic option, but one which shouldn't be discarded to be fair.
Doc brings the insight. The song is perfect and reveals Elvis genius at a young age.

I never liked Elvis' version of this song. But I am happy so many find it great!
