Buck Owens

Alvis Edgar Owens, Jr. (August 12, 1929 – March 25, 2006), better known as Buck Owens, was an American singer and guitarist who had 21 No. 1 hits on the Billboard country music charts with his band, the Buckaroos. They pioneered what came to be called the Bakersfield sound—a reference to Bakersfield, California, the city Owens called home and from which he drew inspiration for what he preferred to call American music. more »

The house my family lives in just down the block
Many times I passed there but I never stopped
I go on all alone a wishin' 
I could be in that house down the block 
With my family
When we meet upon the street 
I just bow my head
They don't know how often 
I wish that I was dead
To our name I brought the shame 
But still I long to be
In that house down the block with my family

When Gabriel blows his trumpet 
And time will be no more
Then memories fade my daddy's faith 
I'll walk up to the door
The tears that fall won't start at all 
And God will let me be
In that house down the block with my family
