The Oak Ridge Boys Sing 'Elvira' At The Grand Ole Opry

Toe-tap along as The Oak Ridge Boys perform their signature song, ‘Elvira’ at the Grand Ole Opry. This hit song was originally written by Dallas Frazier in the 1960s. But it wasn’t until 1981, when the Oak Ridge Boys released their own version of the country tune, that it truly took off. It quickly climbed to the top of the Billboard charts and sold over two million units. Now, ‘Elvira’ is one of those songs where everyone seems to know the 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”

The Oak Ridge Boys are known for their unique blend of country music and gospel. This iconic group consists of Duane Allen singing lead vocals, Joe Bonsall singing the tenor part, William Lee Golden with his baritone voice, and Richard Sterban singing deep bass. They all joined the group at different times, but this particular lineup of men has been the Oak Ridge Boys since 1973.

Today, the group is celebrating their 10th anniversary of joining the Grand Ole Opry with a rousing performance of ‘Elvira.’

Just listen as they stand on that iconic stage and belt out these lyrics that we all know and love.

“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”

Who else needed this dose of nostalgia today?
