“I told Elvis that I’d work for him and buy him everything I could afford. If he had problems, he could come to me and I’d try to understand. I also said, ‘But, son, if you see anything wrong going on, promise me you’ll have no part of it. Just don’t let anything happen so that I’d have to talk to you between bars. That’s the only thing that would break my heart.There were times we had nothing to eat but corn bread and water, but we always had compassion for people. Poor we were, I’ll never deny that. But trash we weren’t… We never had any prejudice. We never put anybody down. Neither did Elvis.”
