The Everly Brothers Lyrics

You don't do your daddy's will
You don't do your daddy's will
There's ain't nothing to you
But I love you still

Please come back where you belong
Please come back where you belong
I've been good to you baby
Please don't leave me alone

I woke up this morning
Lucille was not in sight
Asked my friends about her
All their lips were tight

Please come back where you belong
I've been good to you baby
Please don't leave me alone

You don't do your daddy's will
You don't do your daddy's will
There ain't nothing to you
But I love you still

My favorite rock &
roll song recorded
by the Everlys, who actually recorded very few.
And none of them
charted very high.
They were successful due to
their incomparable country and pop
romantic ballads,
"torch songs", and
teen angst recordings. one of the best being "Problems." I saw
them sing "Lucille"
in a small popular
nightclub named
Mockingbird Lane
@ Northcentral Expressway in
Dallas, Texas not
long before their
unfortunate break
up in 1973. It was was the type of
small venue where they
entered the from
a floor side door
leading to the kichen! Somehow
I was standing near enough when they re-entered for
the second half of
the show to shake their hands. The 45rpm single record sleave they autographed for me is framed. I never got heavily into rock & roll, but this one got to me,
and off the top of
my head I would have to claim this
one as my favorite
of the genre, with
"I'm a Roadrunner"
by Jr. Walker & the All Stars right up
there with it.

Lucille, you won't do your sisters will,
She rans off and married, but I love you still.

Lucille, please come back where you belong,
I've been good to you baby,
please don't leave me along.

I woke up this mornin',
Lucille was not in sight,
I asked my friends about her
but all their lips was tight,

Lucille, baby, satisfy my heart,
I played love with you baby,
and gave you such a wonderful start.

I like this song, but
have to like it
because you do?
Does this apply to
food, clothing, autos, pets, movies, architecture, painting, novels,
poems, vacation
spots, sports, religion, politics,
etc. Is anyone de-
lusional if they
disagree with you
just music?

very nice song


I love this. I never thought anybody could top Little Richard's version, but this Everlys version is so haunting. Love it!


@Robert Sampson i mean who can top Richard and his backing group?
So full of action and rhythm that still knocks me out after all these years!

Robert Sampson

Nobody can top Little Richard's version. This is just so....ugh. Doesn't have near the feel like Little Richard. Just sounds so plain.

Hey, I grew up listening to this music.  I would not have it any other way.  My mom played this music on the turntable and the radio every day. I would listen and love this music every day.  The 1950's and 60's were great times for me.  I've forgotten the bad times.  Music has always been fab.  I am greatful for being born at just the right time, with such great parents and teachings.  No police record here.....


The Everly Brother's harmonies are sublime! Goosebumps


Only the Everlies could take Little Richard's scream and sing it in perfect harmony and with lovely tone (1:33 to 1:36). I've been crying for hours since learning of Phil's passing. They were my first "favorite artist" and always my favorite duo. As others have said, they taught a generation how to sing harmony. It took me 50 years to notice that Phil always stayed a little farther from the mike than Don, so his higher harmony part wouldn't overpower Don's melody. Glad that Phil lived to see the unique tribute of an entire album of theirs (1958 folk collection "Songs Our Daddy Taught Us") being covered, cleverly named "Foreverly" by Billie Joe Armstrong and Norah Jones.  Phil was pleased with it. Now Phil is harmonizing in heaven with Jim Reeves, Patsy Cline, Sam Cook, Otis Redding and so many others we've lost. Prayers to the family.
