Tom Guralnick Lyrics Follow

Thomas Andrew "Colonel Tom" Parker (born Andreas Cornelis van Kuijk; June 26, 1909 – January 21, 1997) was the Dutch-born American manager of Elvis Presley. His success with Presley defined the role of masterminding talent management, which involved every facet of the client's life and was seen as central to the commercial success of Presley's career.
Parker's exceptionally high earnings have led some to question whether it came at the detriment of his client. While other managers took compensation in the range of 10–15 percent of earnings, Parker took as much as 50 percent toward the end of Presley's life. Presley said of Parker, "I don't think I'd have ever been very big if it wasn't for him. He's a very smart man." For many years, Parker falsely claimed to have been born in the United States, but it eventually emerged that he had been born in the Netherlands.
