I wasn't 100% sure, looking into it, there was some publishing concerns over the song - "During Presley's absence, Moman was approached by Bienstock, who was concerned about possible future disputes concerning the songs' publication. Moman and Presley decided not to record Hill & Range compositions, instead using songs by American Sound writers. Bienstock, particularly interested in the non-album "Suspicious Minds" and "Mama Liked the Roses", warned that Moman would have to surrender the publishing rights to release the songs. In response, Moman told Bienstock to take all the recordings and leave the studio.[20] RCA vice-president Harry Jenkins interceded, siding with Moman and ordering Bienstock to stay away from the studio and let Presley work with the staff.[10] Meanwhile, Diskin informed Presley about the publishing issues. Presley supported Moman, assuring Diskin that he and the producer would handle the session work. Diskin contacted Parker, who told him to return to California.[21] Moman retained the publishing rights, and the sessions were scheduled to resume several weeks later."


Now I'm at a loss for which Elvis song it was. But considering most of his songs were covers, and the Col. was one shaddy business man. Hell, he managed to get Elvis song writers credits on Don't Be Cruel even.

Elvis's entire catalogue was covers, one way or another

That’s why Dolly told him to fuck off when he wanted to cover I Will Always Love You. He wanted 50% of the songwriting.
