Like many strong, quirky characters, The King often used sayings and symbols to express his personality. There are many Elvis catchphrases, mottos, and inspirational quotes. But “TCB” was one of Elvis’s most famous mottos.

Elvis’s Last Words

Elvis had a lot of sleep and digestive trouble later in life, probably caused by his dependence on prescription medications. He sometimes spent so much time in the bathroom that he’d fall asleep on the toilet.

One sleepless night, when he was 42 years old, he went to relieve himself. He was dressed in his signature gold pajamas and carried the book, ” The Scientific Search for the Face of Jesus” with him. When his fiancé reminded him not to fall asleep, he answered, “I won’t.” Those were his last words.
