about

Elvin Prezby Huntersville, North Carolina

Elvin Prezby is an indie rock band from Charlotte, NC. Raw garage-punk meets the British invasion.

What’s with the name?
In 1980, local filmmaker Earl Owensby starred in & produced a B-movie, “Living Legend: The King of Rock and Roll.” The film loosely tells the story of...you guessed it…Eli Canfield! (Not to be confused with Elvis Presley.) Or as we remembered it, Elvin Prezby.

Track Name: (Baby Won't You) Please Come Home
I've got the blues, I feel so lonely
I'll give the world if I could only
Make you understand
It surely would be grand

I'm gonna telephone my baby
Ask him won't you please come home
'Cause when you're gone
I'm worried all day long

Baby won't you please come home
Baby won't you please come home
I have tried in vain
Evermore to call your name
When you left you broke my heart
That will never make us part
Every hour in the day
You will hear me say
Baby won't you please come home, I mean
Baby won't you please come home

Baby won't you please come home
'Cause your mama's all alone
I have tried in vain
Nevermore to call your name
When you left you broke my heart
That will never make us part
Landlord gettin' worse
I've got to move May the first
Baby won't you please come home, I need money
Baby won't you please come home
Track Name: Johnny Comes Marching
When Johnny comes marching home again
Hurrah! Hurrah!
We'll give him a hearty welcome then
Hurrah! Hurrah!
The men will cheer and the boys will shout
The ladies they will all put out
And we'll all feel gay
When Johnny comes marching home.
The old church bell will peal with joy
Hurrah! Hurrah!
To welcome home our darling boy,
Hurrah! Hurrah!
The village lads and lassies say
With roses they will strew the way,
And we'll all feel gay
When Johnny comes marching home.
Get ready for the Jubilee,
Hurrah! Hurrah!
We'll give the hero three times three,
Hurrah! Hurrah!
The laurel wreath is ready now
To place upon his loyal brow
And we'll all feel gay
When Johnny comes marching home.
Let love and friendship on that day,
Hurrah, hurrah!
Their choicest pleasures then display,
Hurrah, hurrah!
And let each one perform some part,
To fill with joy the warrior's heart,
And we'll all feel gay
When Johnny comes marching home.
