Oak Ridge Boys performs "Elvira"

"Elvira" is a song written by Dallas Frazier which became a famous country and pop hit by The Oak Ridge Boys in 1981, now considered one of their signature songs.

The Oak Ridge Boys already had a very successful career by 1981. They had five gold albums to their credits, with one Greatest Hits collection about to go platinum. Most of their hits had reached number one in Billboard or CashBox, and a few had crossed over to the pop and adult contemporary charts. However, they were still looking for that one song that really defined them. In May 1979, William Lee Golden told People magazine: "Inevitably our music will cross all borders and labels. Someday we're going to run across something that everybody will like at the same time. When THAT happens, we'll have made it."

Oak Ridge Boys - Elvira Lyrics

 

Eyes that look like heaven, lips like sherry wine

That girl can sure enough make my little light shine

I get a funny feelin' up and down my spine

Cause I know that my elvira's mine

So I'm singin'

Elvira, elvira

My heart's on fire elvira

Giddy up oom poppa omm poppa mow mow

Giddy up oom poppa omm poppa mow mow

Heigh-ho silver, away

Tonight I'm gonna meet her at the hungry house cafe

And I'm gonna give her all the love I can

She's gonna jump and holler 'cause I saved up my last two dollars

We're gonna search and find that preacher man

Now I'm a singin'

Elvira, elvira

My heart's on fire elvira

Giddy up oom poppa omm poppa mow mow

Giddy up oom poppa omm poppa mow mow

Heigh-ho silver, away
