Carry me back, Lord, while I still got the time
Is Jimmy through serving HIS hitch with Uncle Sam
Do the kids still spend Saturday nights driving round HAMBERGER DAN'S
Did Jackie ever make it to the streets of Hollywood
And Bobby, I'd love to see him again and I would if I could
Carry me back and make me feel at home
Let me cling to those mem'ries that won't let me alone
Where it is always summer and she was always kind
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 say 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...
