Elvis Presley Last Words OK, I Won’t., On the night of his death, in August 1977, Elvis was struggling to sleep. The King was suffering from a range of health issues, including glaucoma, high blood pressure and an enlarged colon. When he made his way to the bathroom, taking with him an assortment of prescription medication, his then girlfriend, Ginger Alden, issued a simple request.
“Don’t fall asleep in there”, she said. Elvis responded with his final words. Aldren would later discover his lifeless body on the bathroom floor.
