CARRY ME BACK
The Statler Brothers


Carry me back, Lord, while I still got the time

Is Jimmy through servin' his hitch with Uncle Sam?
Do the kids still spend Saturday nights drivin' 'round Hamburger Dan's?
Did Jackie ever make it to the streets of Hollywood?
And Bobby, I'd love to see him again, & I would if I could

Carry me back & make me feel at home
Let me cling to those mem'ries that won't let me alone
Where it was always summer and she was always mine
Carry me back, Lord, while I still got the time

Does the preacher still visit when some poor soul gets down?"
Do the stores still stay open on Friday nights downtown?
Is JoAnn still as pretty as when she wore my high school ring?
When you see her, tell her I said July 1959; she'll know what I mean

Carry me back & make me feel at home
Let me cling to those mem'ries that won't let me alone
Where it was always summer and she was always mine
Carry me back, Lord, while I still got the time

Carry me back, Lord, while I still got the time


THE STATLER BROTHERS

The Statler Brothers were an American country music vocal group founded in 1955 in Staunton, Virginia.

Originally performing gospel music at local churches, the group billed themselves as The Four Star Quartet, and later The Kingsmen. In 1963, when the song "Louie, Louie" by the garage rock band also called The Kingsmen became famous, the group elected to bill themselves as The Statler Brothers. Despite the name, only two members of the group (Don and Harold Reid) are actual brothers and none have the surname of "Statler". ... Read More
