Stride piano and a low down 'bom, bom, bom'. There are definitely echoes of Elvis in the vocal here, but Don Gibson has his own turtle neckin' late 1950′s thing going on that takes this away from simple imitation and makes it into something genuine sounding. Interesting use of space with the production also.
