About Walk Right Back

"Walk Right Back" is a 1961 song by Sonny Curtis that was recorded by The Everly Brothers, and went to No. 7 on the U. S. Billboard Hot 100 chart. Overseas, the song went No. 1 on the UK Singles Chart for three weeks. Originally it was the B-side, then it was changed to the A-side. In an interview he did with Jim Liddane of the International Songwriters Association, Sonny Curtis said about the song: Well, I wrote most of that one Sunday afternoon, while I was doing my basic training in California, just after I went in the army, although I had the guitar riff for a while, and then, Lady Luck stepped in. I never was much for guns, and still am not really into them, but out of 250 men in our unit in basic training, six of us fired expert, and I was one of the six! Anyway, for firing expert, they gave me a three-day pass, and I went straight down to Hollywood, and the Crickets were there, and so were Don and Phil, who were doing some acting classes for movies — they had just signed for Warner Brothers. So, J. I. (Jerry Allison of the Crickets) told me to sing the song for Don — actually I had only one verse written — and Don called Phil down, and they worked out a gorgeous harmony part. So, they said, 'If you write another verse. we'll record it'.

I want you to tell me why you walked out on me
I'm so lonesome every day
I want you to know that since you walked out on me
Nothing seems to be the same old way

Think about the love that burns within my heart for you
The good times we had before you went away, oh please
Walk right back to me this minute
Bring your love to me, don't send it
I'm so lonesome every day

I want you to tell me why you walked out on me
I'm so lonesome every day
I want you to know that since you walked out on me
Nothing seems to be the same old way

Think about the love that burns within my heart for you
The good times we had before you went away from me
Walk right back to me this minute
Bring your love to me, don't send it
I'm so lonesome every day

Walk right back to me this minute
I'm so lonesome every day
I'm so lonesome every day
I'm so lonesome every day
