Pat: IN THE 80s THEY SHOT TO

THE TOP

OF THE MUSIC CHARTS AND THEY

HAVE BEEN

STRONG EVER SINCE, 45 ALBUMS.

17 NO. 1

SINGLES. THEY HAVE JUST

INTRODUCED A

NEW CD.

IT'S BEEN FOUR 4 DECADES AND

THE OAK

RIDGE BOYS ARE STILL MAKING

BEAUTIFUL

MUSIC. THE OAK RIDGE BOYS HAVE

HAD

NUMEROUS HITS OVER THE YEARS

INCLUDING

ELVIRA AND THEY HAVE WORKED

WITH RAY

CHARLES AND KENNY RODGERS AND

BILLY

JOEL.

Pat: THE OAKS ARE HERE WITH

US AND

HERE WE GO. RICHARD AND WAYNE

ALLEN

AND JOE AND NEXT TO HIM, A DEAR

FRIEND

WITH THE BEARD. GOD BLESS YOU.

HEY,

LISTEN, I WANT TO ASK YOU

SOMETHING.

YOU WERE ALL WITH ME ON MY 80TH

BIRTHDAY. WILL YOU BE WITH ME

ON ANY

-- MY 90TH?

YES. WE WILL BE WITH YOU ON

YOUR

90TH AND 95TH.

YOU WERE OUT THERE WITH ME

IN TEXAS,

IT WAS FANTASTIC. OAK RIDGE HAD

IT

GOING ON.

YES, THEY WERE HOLDING

PEOPLE

SEQUESTERED AND WERE IN THE

MANHATTAN

AN PROJECT AND THEY WERE STUCK.

HOW DO YOU DO, YOU DO 100

EVENTS A

YEAR. HOW DO YOU STAY TOGETHER,

YOU

SEEM TO GET ALONG PRETTY WELL.

WHAT'S

THE SECRET?

WE ENJOY WHAT WE DO AND WE

RESPECT

EACH OTHER FOR WHAT THEY BRING

TO THE

MIX. WE ARE A HARMONY GROUP AND

HAD A

LOT OF SUCCESS TOGETHER AS THIS

GROUP

AND THAT'S WHAT PEOPLE WANT TO

SEE.

THEY WANT TO SEE THE HIT

RECORDS THEY

HEARD ON RADIO AND SEE THE FOUR

OF US

STANDING UP AND SINGING THE

SONGS.

I REMEMBER THE SENATES, THEY

WANTED

TO HEAR ELVIRA AND THEY TRIED

TO COPY

IT.

IT WAS FUNNY SEEING A BUNCH

OF

SENATORS.

WHAT'S NEXT?

WE HAVE THIS NEW ALBUM AND

WE'VE

BEEN EXCITED ABOUT IT. WE HAVE

NEVER

RECORDED A CD OF THE GREAT OLD

HYMNS.

WE ARE PAYING TRIBUTE TO OUR

ROOTS AND

HERITAGE. YOU CAN GET IT AT

CRACKLE

BARREL RIGHT NOW. YOU CAN GO

EAT AND

THEN BUY.

THEY HAVE GOOD OLD SO --

SOUL FOOD.

BISCUITS.

DO YOU HAVE A MEMORY YOU

WANT TO

SHARE IN YOUR LIFE?

ONE OF THE GREAT MEMORIES WE

EXPERIENCED IN 1966 MADE US ALL

BETTER

AMERICANS. WE WERE IN A

CULTURAL

EXCHANGE PROGRAM IN THE SOVIET

UNION

BEFORE THE I RON CURTAIN CAME

DOWN AND

THEY WATCHED EVERY MOVE WE

MADE. WHEN

WE GOT HOME WE KISSED THE

GROUND WHEN

WE LANDED IN THE AIRPORT. WE

KNEW WE

WERE LIVING IN THE LAND OF

FREEDOM

BECAUSE WE CAN SEE WHERE WE

CAME FROM.

FOR EVERY AMERICAN, BE THANKFUL

WHERE

YOU LIVE.

FLYING ON AIR FORCE ONE WITH

GEORGE

BUSH, THAT WAS AN AMAZING TRIP.

THAT'S TRUE.

GUYS, YOU ARE GOING TO SING

THIS

BIRTHDAY CELEBRATION. LET ME

SEND YOU

OVER TO THE MUSIC SET. THESE

ARE DEAR

FRIENDS. I JUST LOVE THESE

GUYS. THEY

ARE GOING TO BE WITH ME WHEN

I'M 90. SO

STAY AROUND, FOLKS. THEY WERE

PRAYING

WITH ME. ONE OF THEM SAY YOU

HAVE TO

HANG AROUND UNTIL I'M 100 AND

MY WIFE

IS GOING TO BE WITH ME AND THE

OAKS

GUARANTEE TO BE THERE WHEN I'M

90. THE

LATEST CD IS CALLED ROCK OF

AGES. IT'S

AVAILABLE WHEREVER MUSIC IS

SOLD AND

SAID YOU CAN GET IT WITH YOUR

BISCUITS

AND GRAVY AT THE CRACKER

BARREL. HERE

IS THE SONG. THE OAK RIDGE BOYS.

* LIFE

IS LIKE A MOUNTAIN RAILROAD

WITH AN

ENGINEER THAT'S BRAVE. WE MUST

THINK TO

RUN SUCCESSFUL FROM THE CRADLE

TO THE

GRAVE. WATCH THE CURVES, THE

HILLS, THE

TUNNELS, NEVER FAULTER, NEVER

FAIL.

KEEP YOUR HANDS UPON THE TLODEL

AND

YOUR EYE UPON THE GRAIL.

BLESSED

SAVIOUR THAT WILL GUIDE US

UNTIL WE

REACH THAT FAITHFUL SHORE. WHEN

THE

ANGELS WAIT TO JOIN US AND I

THINK

PRAISE FOREVER MORE.* AS YOU

ROSE

ACROSS THE TRESSEL SPANNING --

JOY. YOU

WILL BE HOLD THE UNION DEPOT

INTO WHICH

YOUR TRAIN WILL GLIDE. THERE

YOU WILL

MEET THE SUPERINTENDANT, GOD

THE

FATHER, GOD THE SON. WITH

EXTENDED

HANDS HE'LL GREET YOU, WHERE

THE

PILGRIM WELCOME HOME. BLESSED

SAVIOUR

THAT WILL GUIDE US UNTIL WE

REACH THAT

BEAUTIFUL SHORE. WHERE THE

ANGELS WAIT

TO JOIN US. AND THY PRAISE

FOREVER MORE.

* HERE WE GO.

WHERE THE ANGELS WAIT TO JOIN

US AND

THY PRAISE FOREVER MORE.*
