The Limeliters

The Limeliters are an American folk music group, formed in July 1959 by Lou Gottlieb (bass violin/bass), Alex Hassilev (banjo/baritone), and Glenn Yarbrough (guitar/tenor). The group was active from 1959 until 1965, when they disbanded. After a hiatus of sixteen years Yarbrough, Hassilev, and Gottlieb reunited and began performing as The Limeliters again. The Limeliters are still active and performing, but Hassilev, the last founding member active in the group, has retired, leaving the group to carry on without any of the original members. more »

I've laid around and played around this old town too long,
summer's almost gone, yes, winter's coming on.
I've laid around and played around this old town too long,
And I feel like I've gotta travel on.

Poppa writes to Johnny, but Johnny can't come home.
Johnny can't come home, no, Johnny can't come home.
Poppa writes to Johnny, but Johnny can't come home,
'Cause he's been on the chain gang too long.

I've laid around and played around this old town too long,
summer's almost gone, yes, winter's coming on.
I've laid around and played around this old town too long,
And I feel like I've gotta travel on.
