The Statler Brothers All-Girl-All-Gospel Quartet Lyrics

Last updated: 05/21/2007 11:00:00 AM

Maybe the first time I saw them
I was nine going on ten years old.
I fell in love with their music
And with the stories their music told.
I had all of their long-playing records
And memorized songs I still can't forget.
My room was papered with pictures
Of the All-Girl, All-Gospel Quartet.

Flora was oldest and tallest.
She sang the high soprano.
Alma played the piano
And sang the sweetest alto
Bonnie Mae sang bass and sold records.
I bought every one I could get.
And my favorite, little Louise, sang tenor
In the All-Girl, All-Gospel Quartet.

And their harmony sounded like angels
And I can still hear them yet.
Alma and Flora, Bonnie Mae and little Louise,
The All-Girl, All-Gospel Quartet.
[ piano ]
Somewhere just after my childhood,
I lost track and they lost some ground.
Only in bargain store basements or flea markets
Could their records be found
I heard one lives in Akron, Ohio.
One quit to take care of her dad.
One's on TV in Atlanta
And the one they call Louise went bad.

And their harmony sounded like angels
And I can still hear them yet.
Alma and Flora, Bonnie Mae and little Louise,
The All-Girl, All-Gospel Quartet.
[ piano ]

If any of the four of you hear me,
There's a song I never could find.
It's the one where Alma played guitar
And Bonnie Mae sang after time (sang after time).

And it's sad now how no one remembers
Though I find them hard to forget.
And you would if you'd ever heard them,
The All-Girl, All-Gospel Quartet.
Alma and Flora, Bonnie and Louise,
The All-Girl, All-Gospel Quartet.

(The Girls Next Door):
In the sweet(In the sweet), bye and bye (bye and bye).
