Keith Whitley - Homecoming '63 Lyrics




I was so proud you went with me
Everyone turned their head when we walked in
They said look at that perfect pair
as you blushed from all their stares
and my chest swelled up with pride
grinning from ear to ear inside
an hour full of dance and fun
an hour later it all begun
my '57 off to heaven
back seat lovin' girl you were somethin'

Home coming '63
You went home with the love you gave to me
You turned me on to extasy
Homecoming '63

What a night that was for us
I remember plain as day the touch
I felt when I felt your love melt in my arms
and that old and pleated back seat bed
I pleaded with you and instead of the usual no
you said yes you let go

Home coming '63
You went home with the love you gave to me
You turned me on to extasy
Homecoming '63

Homecoming '63

  4. jay thacker

    Truly one of the few "artist" that gets to u. R.I.P. Keith

  5. Raul Hilliard

    A pure gem here

  6. Vivian Ramage

    His life ended way too soon! He had so much more to tell us! Never will forget the day he left us still makes me sad.

  7. Rena D

    One of the most underrated, smoothest voices ever.. I loved, loved him.. Just silenced wayyyy too soon, Bless his heart 🌹

  8. Adam Crabtree

    Country music was more than just word's and a tune back then. It was a life well lived.

  9. Adam Crabtree

    Back when country music was" PURE" And "REAL".

  10. William McCloud

    And Keith Whitley was just 34 years old when he passed away from alcohol addiction he was such a talented person just lost him to soon

  11. William McCloud

    Him and lori Morgan made a good couple both was very talented I really think that they loved each other

    countrygirl countrymusiclover

    Who's lori??? In my 25 years of living i've never heard of her. Keith was never involved with anyone with that name. Respect her and spell her name right. Lorrie not lori. Lori and keith may be couple somewhere on this planet but Lorrie and keith are in the video. She was married to him when he died in 89

    William McCloud

    countrygirl countrymusiclover good evening I meant to say lorrie Morgan so for the misunderstanding of that I apologize for that we lost Keith Whitley to soon to alcohol addiction at the age of 34 years old when he passed away he was such a very talented person we lost him to soon

  12. William McCloud

    Keith Whitley was great singer at least lori Morgan was trying to help him over his alcohol addiction and I have to give her credit for that there will never be another Keith Whitley he was 34 years old when he passed away from alcohol poisoning

    William McCloud

    What a good couple they made seems that both of them was very talented and I think that Keith Whitley and lori Morgan really loved each other

  13. Rhonda Cain

    I hear ya, Keith! Gone too soon, I'm 25, & love it man!
    North Carolina, WHO ELSE LIKES KEITH WHITLEY?!?

  17. Kristal Price

    Kentucky boy. Are music leaves one

  18. Jody Kidd

    Keith sing some of the best country song. It just to bad that the drink got the best of him. I think that he would have had so many more #1 hits if he lived long. He music is a lot better than what they call country music now days.

    countrygirl countrymusiclover

    Sang not sing. Even me and my husband's three older kids who are six four and three know that

    countrygirl countrymusiclover

    Also stupider than shit stupid mental twat they call today's country country because only a twat would call something like today's country which is too country to classify as anything else for any other genre not country. Today's country can't sound like another genre if it tried you sick twat. It's equally as country as this regardless of sound. They can't call it any other genre because it is as far from any other genre as you can get

    countrygirl countrymusiclover

    Also he is equally as phenomenal as about 93% of recent people from recent country and 1OO% of today's country are all equally as country

    countrygirl countrymusiclover

    It's *TOO* bad your mental ass doesn't know what country is. If you did you would know that today's country is too country to classify as anything else for any other genre. It's *TOO* bad you're not like me and my husband's three older kids. They're six four and three years old. They know when to use too to and two unlike you. If you knew how you would of put too instead of to

  19. William McCloud

  40. JW Oliver

    He may have gave up drinking. But he had a drug problem.

    fresh Mintz

    Coke and alcohol

    Jennifer Shirer

    How do you know he had a drug problem

    fresh Mintz

    William McCloud

    True very true we lost Keith Whitley to soon to alcohol poisoning at the age of 34 years old when he passed away from alcohol poisoning

    William McCloud

    josh boggs thanks for nice compliment nice very nice and thank you for agreeing with me on Keith Whitley he was such a very talented person we lost him to soon to alcohol poisoning he was 34 years old when he passed away

    William McCloud

    josh boggs I have some of his vinyl

    William McCloud

    josh boggs I have la to Miami and don't close your eyes and a hard act to follow and I wonder do you think of me

    Adam Crabtree

    josh boggs I agree, he was a great singer. You can as always tell pure country music from today's so called country music. Because when you listen to a song that was performed 30 + year's ago, and it still moves you on the inside and you feel it in you're heart. Then you can say that is pure country music.

  47. Sheila Pollock

    I know she hurts for him..You can see it. So tragic..

    William McCloud

    Sheila Pollock true very true

  48. Jeffrey Baker

    Lorrie Morgan looks so much like a Porn Star with her 80s blond hair

  49. Jeffrey Baker

    Notice in the video the banner behind Keith and his band says Sandyhook High School. This isn't the Sandyhook where the shooting happened in 2014?

    Logan Spence

    Jeffrey Baker no this is sandyhook kentucky where Keith was from

    Ky Girl

    It's not actually called "Sandy Hook High School." It is the name of the town, so they got that part wrong. I went to this same high school. It has changed a lot over the years, but when I graduated back in 1998, it still looked pretty much the same as it does in this video, just had different doors.

  50. Twyla's Handmade Treasures

    One of my favorites he ever sang. ♥
