  • Recommended: Elvis Presley - An American Trilogy (MIDI version)

    "An American Trilogy" is a song arranged by country songwriter Mickey Newbury and made popular by Elvis Presley, who began including the song as part of his regular concert routine in the 1970s, thereby making the song a showstopper. It is a medley of three 19th century songs—"Dixie", a blackface minstrel song that became the unofficial anthem of the Confederacy since the Civil War; "All My Trials", originally a Bahamian lullaby, but closely related to African American spirituals, and well-known through folk music revivalists; and "The Battle Hymn of the Republic", the marching song of the Union Army during the Civil War.

    Newbury's first recorded the song on his 1971 album Frisco Mabel Joy, and the song featured prominently on his first concert album Live At Montezuma Hall released in 1973.

    Presley began performing the song in concert in 1972—a February recording was released by RCA as a single. He performed it in the 1972 documentary, Elvis on Tour, and in his 1973 international satellite telecast "Elvis—Aloha from Hawaii". The song is referenced and partially sung in the Manic Street Preachers' "Elvis Impersonator: Blackpool Pier" from the Everything Must Go album.
