Shortest song was in Girls Girls Girls I think...when he sang to those two little girls outside. Forgot the name but I know it was like 45 seconds.
Love to all,

Possibly the longest is a live version of Suspicous Minds at almost 8 minutes i think. Studio wise possibly either the jam versions of Got my Mojo Working, Don't Think Twice It's Alright or Washed my Hands In Muddy Water.

Loving You - Elvis Presley Soundtrack CD
This is the soundtrack CD to Elvis' second movie, Loving You is remixed and remastered from the original three-track master tapes, and includes 8 extra tracks. Recorded at The Paramount Scoring Stage and Radio Recorders, Hollywood, CA in January and February 1957.
Elvis Presley's first film, Love Me Tender, included music as an afterthought, but music was the priority in his next, Loving You. Four of the seven songs were hits, while "Mean Woman Blues" has been recorded by Jerry Lee Lewis, Roy Orbison and many others. "(Let's Have A) Party" at 90 seconds is the shortest single ever to make the charts, a peculiar achievement as Elvis has an additional verse in the film. Fans used to send Elvis Presley teddy bears, hence the song of the same name. Jerry Leiber and Mike Stoller wrote one of their finest ballads with "Loving You," a song comparable to Cole Porter's "True Love" which, in turn, completed this 8-track, 10-inch album. In the USA, the album was issued in 12-inch format and the four additional tracks, including "Blueberry Hill," were released on an EP in the UK.

"Don't think Twice,It's All Right"

Surely "Lovely Mamie" is only a snippet of a song, similar in character to many he later did on stage. The spirit of the question, I think, is asking about songs that are considered complete in some way.
I know that the long jams of "Don't Think Twice", "Merry Christmas Baby" and "Suspicious Minds" are complete, but there's also endless repetition. In terms of natural song structure, I believe "Tomorrow Is A Long Time" would be hard to beat.

As far as I know, the longest is "Merry Christmas Baby" with a runtime of 05:44 min. The shortest on record is "Mama" with 00:59 min.
