Now I Pray
The Dells Lyrics


Lord knows I tried so hard to be a companion
I think to come up to standard
A hole without just they were building at all
Sat on my heart his preaches I screamed for you
If you would just grant me I write on my bed
If you would just give me a prayer

You got me walkin' around in circle
Don't even remember my name
When you leave the world on fire
You know that I'm a man
A man without you see prayed
Like my lovin' girl to keep
If I wait before my love
Let me find her in my arms

You got me walkin' around in circle
Don't even remember my name
When you leave the world on fire
You know that I'm a man
A man without you see prayed
Like my lovin' girl to keep
If I wait before my love
Let me find her in my arms.

Things you didn't know: Vee Jay Records, was not interested in
promoting The Dells. Calvin Carter (Vee Jay's A&R Man) wanted
The Dells to be his 'background vocal group' because of their
tremendous vocal talents. Vee Jay, released The Dells, and The
Impressions, on the same day. The Impressions went to ABC
Paramount, and The Dells went across the street to Chess Records.
The rest is History ..... How do I know? I'm Michael 'Mickey' McGill
80 years old. Verne Allison is 80, Chuck Barksdale is 82. Marvin Junior, Johnnie Carter, and Johnny Funches have passed.
Long live The MIghty Dells tremendous music.

What a voice!! Thanks PJ :-)

Ron Rico

It's amazing how many killer tunes went unissued for many years. Here is a perfect example of an excellent tune that well may have charted in '56. Nice find PJ.

Freddie Barrett
