Everly Brothers, The - Sing Me Back Home Lyrics




The warden led a prisoner down the hallway to his doom
I stood up to say good-bye like all the rest
And I heard him tell the warden just before he reached my cell
“Let my guitar playing friend do my request.”

“Let him...
Sing me back home a song I used to hear
Make my old memories come alive
Take me away and turn back the years
Sing me back home before I die”

I recall last Sunday morning a choir from off the street
Came in to sing a few old gospel songs
And I heard him tell the singers,
“There's a song my mama sang
Could I hear it once before you move along?”

“Won't you...
Sing me back home, a song I used to hear?
Make my old memories come alive
Please take me away and turn back the years
Sing me back home before I die”

  1. Paul Hutchings

    With due respect Hag, this cover is better than the original and sends shivers doene my spine. The singing from Don & Phil is brilliant.

  2. beverly holliday

  3. Raymond Gill

    A truly great album.

  4. Chris Rushforth

    I just read Sam McCue's comment, it brought a lump to my throat. The more I hear about Phil Everly the more I want to hear. He was a remarkable man. I didn't know him but I miss him.

    Sam McCue

    +Blenda Taylor ... Been gone a little over two years and I'm still missing him. I worked with him and Donald for the best part of ten years and, to this day, it's hard to get my head around it. One of the gentlest souls to ever grace the planet.

    Sam I know you treasure your friendship with Phil over all that time. I feel in my heart he is like a brother to me and yet I only met him fleetingly. I will always miss him.
