From Wikipedia:

“We’re Gonna Move” is a song by Elvis Presley. The song is credited to Elvis Presley and Vera Matson, the wife of Ken Darby, the principal writer, published by Elvis Presley Music. The song was featured in the 20th Century Fox movie Love Me Tender and was released as an RCA Victor EP in 1956. […]

A lyric from “We’re Gonna Move” — “a hole in the roof where the rain leaks in” — has been cited as the inspiration for the Beatles’ “Fixing a Hole” from “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band” album.

In 1974, while filming the “One Hand Clapping” documentary, Paul McCartney recorded an acoustic guitar version of “We’re Gonna Move” in the backyard of the EMI Studios at Abbey Road. This track is available on bootlegs.

It was reported that Paul recorded “We’re Gonna Move” during the sessions for his 1999 album “Run Devil Run“. This version has not surfaced yet.
