This song was written by Marty Robbins and was most popularly recorded by Frankie Laine in 1969. Elvis performed the song during his Aloha from Hawaii concert and subsequently performed as part of his repertoire for the rest of his life.

There is a great sense of inspirational feeling, bringing together Elvis voice, a country feel and something of an anthem in one song.
