"U.S. Male" is a song by Jerry Reed, covered by Elvis Presley.

It was recorded in January 1968 and followed the kind of country music Presley had already recorded in September 1967 with songs like "Big Boss Man" and "Guitar Man". Presley recorded these three songs accompanied by Reed on lead guitar. It paved the way for Presley's famous '68 Comeback Special, filmed in June 1968 and broadcast on NBC on December 3, 1968. Reed's version appears on his debut album, The Unbelievable Guitar and Voice of Jerry Reed.
