    Dixie was his first girl friend, they met before Elvis recorded That's all right.
    And they spoke about marriage too, but seperated when Elvis' career started
    and he began touring the country. Peter Guralnick writes this in Last train to Memphis.
    June and Elvis met in Biloxi where June was at one of his concerts.

    I think she broke up with him because he wasn't spending anymore time with her...and I think she also knew he was messing around. Before he became so popular he was thinking of marriage - and by Elvis' own words, "the closest I ever came to getting married was while I was still in high school. As a matter of fact, my first record saved me from it"

    I think Elvis had a lot of girlfriends even before high school. Was Dixie the one he spent a great deal of time with? There was the girl - Reagan? who he took to prom and of course there was Magdalene Morgan - his girl from Tupelo. The one he forged the marriage certificate


    Just pretend, I'm holding you, and whispering things soft and low.
    And think of me, how it's gonna be and just pretend I didn't go

    Dixie is who Elvis first dated from a very young age i believe. June was a girl he started dating when he was just becoming famous. But she left him as she realised his fame was going to be a problem.

    I just read Elvis Day by Day and it was interesting. Elvis was not a one women man. But then he traveled around so darn much. I think it would have been hard for him or any women. Even when he was in Germany he was involved with several women. I think he became infatuated with women easily. And let's face it, he could have almost any women he wanted. I wonder if most men wouldn't be that way if they could???

    Interesting theory about Elvis and women - they all say that when he was with them - he was very serious - he only had eyes for them and even professed his love for them - many times. I think that while Elvis was with that woman - he really meant what he said - he "fell" easy......but "out of sight out of mind" after that. In other words - he wasn't feeding them a line of bull - he really meant what he said while he was with them.......what do you all think?
