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 drivin' 'round Hamburger 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 memories that won't let me alone
Where it was 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 stay open on Friday nights downtown?
Is Jo Ann 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 and make me feel at home
Let me cling to those memories that won't let me alone
Where it was always summer and she was always kind
Carry me back Lord while I still got the time
Carry me back Lord while I still got the time
