ELVIS PRESLEY was bigger than life. His success was documented and laid out for him. He came to the first show I had in Memphis, and it was very nice. He sort of treated me like an equal, because we were both fresh in the business. We got to be great friends and kindred souls.
People often ask me how would I like to be remembered and I answer that I would simply like to be remembered.
Whether I'm in London, Sydney or Hong Kong, it makes no difference. There is always someone who knows me. I must be one of the most unloneliest people in the world!
I may be a living legend, but that sure don't help when I've got to change a flat tire.
I close my eyes, then I drift away, into the magic night I softly say. A silent prayer, like dreamers do, then I fall asleep to dream my dreams of you.
Before you go to sleep, do not forget to say thanks for everything good that has happened to you in the last 24 hours.
Without the word dream, or the concept dream, and without the word blue and the emotions, I would have been really limited in the things I've written and performed.
I've really learned a lot, really learned a lot, love is like a stove, burns you when it's hot
Saving nickels, saving dimes, working 'til the sun don't shine, looking forward to happier times.
I got a woman that's mean as she can be, sometimes I think she's almost as mean as me.
You wiggle to the left, you wiggle to the right, you do the Ooby Dooby with all your might.
As you stopped to say hello, oh, you wished me well, you couldn't tell that I'd been crying over you.
Love ranges from just fascination to something almost spiritual. In the case with my wife Barbara it just keeps growing all the time.
I saw Elvis live in '54. It was at the Big D Jamboree in Dallas and the first thing, he came out and spit on the stage...it affected me exactly the same way as when I first saw that David Lynch film. There was just no reference point in the culture to compare it to.
A candy coloured clown they call the sandman
Tiptoes into my room every night
Just to sprinkle stardust and whisper;
"Go to sleep, everything is alright"
Only the lonely know the way I feel tonight.
Love hurts, love scars, love wounds, and mars.
Pretty woman, I don't believe you, you're not the truth. No one could look as good as you, mercy.
I waited, and I’m sure Elvis did too, for each Ricky Nelson record like we would a Chuck Berry record or a Fats Domino record, to see what was going on. I used to say to some of the guys that Ricky Nelson learned to sing on million selling records.
Elvis was the firstest with the mostest.
