I loved music since the Seth Ward Baptist Church outside of Plainview.


I was a hard-workin' little boy. Oh, I worked. Pullin' cotton, shockin' grain, cuttin' wheat, loadin' wheat, choppin' cotton, cleanin' chicken houses, milkin' cows, plowin'.


When I was a kid, I used to think, 'Man, if I could ever afford all the ice cream I want to eat, that's as rich as I ever want to be.'


Being a Baptist won't keep you from sinning, but it'll sure as hell keep you from enjoying it.

Do what you say you're going to do. And try to do it a little better than you said you would.


I think the kids in school that laughed at the clothes that we wore and the house that we lived in, and then my mother had to cut hair... I think that was a good motivator.

Poverty was the greatest motivating factor in my life.


God is bigger than people think.


I made more money yesterday than I ever thought I'd make in an entire lifetime. But it's like somebody's going to take it all away from me and I'll be back in Texas, installing them damned irrigation wells. I didn't like that when I was sixteen. And I know I wouldn't like it when I'm eighty.


I went further on less talent than anyone, but I was a damned good entertainer.


Nobody, man or woman, has ever wrecked a good marriage.


I used to help my granddaddy make sausage. He would mix it up in a cleaned-out washtub with his hands, no gloves. Man, if we did anything like that today, they would jack the jail up and throw us under it.


Love is an ice cream sundae, with all the marvelous coverings. Sex is the cherry on top.


I've seen so many people in this business that made a fortune. They get old and broke and can't make any money. I tell you something... no one's going to play a benefit for Jimmy Dean.


You gotta try your luck at least once a day, because you could be going around lucky all day and not even know it.


I can't change the direction of the wind, but I can adjust my sails to always reach my destination.
