I thank God for Elvis Presley. I thank the Lord for sending Elvis to open the door so I could walk down the road....
I got fame and fortune, and I lost my sense of reasoning.
I let people know that it was all right to do the kinds of things I did.
They shoulda called me Little Cocaine, I was sniffing so much of the stuff! My nose got big enough to back a diesel truck in, unload it, and drive it right out again.
Elvis was God-given, there's no other explanation. A Messiah comes around
every few thousand years, and Elvis was it this time.
I gave up rock 'n' roll for the rock of ages! I used to be a glaring homosexual until God changed me!
Rock 'n' roll offered me a platform to speak what I felt. It also offered me a platform to support my mama and my brothers and sisters - twelve children.
Now they have banging guitar and no bass and call it rock, but that's not what I call rock.
I look back on my life, comin' out of Macon, Georgia - I never thought I'd be a superstar, a living legend. I never heard of no rock and roll in my life.
I don't think a woman has to act like a man to show that she has strength.
We're gonna have some fun tonight.

A lot of songs I sang to crowds to get their reaction. That's how I knew they'd hit.
I thank God for making me a man.
I was really kind of shy as a child. But I would do things for attention.
I never heard nobody in my audience call me any kind of names.
Plus I love Tanya Tucker and I love country music.
I also like the banging piano - that old good-time piano.
God is omnipotent, He is omniscient, and He is ever present.
But when I went on the stage to do a show, I would put on makeup because I felt that it enhanced my act; it drew attention to what I was doing.
But I'm a rock 'n' roll singer; that's my livelihood, my occupation.
But I was singing loud, and most singers weren't singing loud.
And I think a woman should find it a joy to be female because God made both male and female.
And I don't get down on nobody else for doing whatever else they do. To each his own.
