[chordpress float=”none” format=”yes” hbnotation=”no” interactive=”no” transpose=”0″]I’ll Never Go Back
Written and recorded by Charles and Ira Louvin
[C]I once was bound by the [F]chains of [C]sin
There was no light to shine [G7]within
Down on my [C]knees I knelt and prayed
And He took my burdens [G7]all a[C]way
I’ll never go [G7]back to the ways of [C]sin
Where the Lord found me [D7]and took me [G7]in
He came to [C]me in a world so black
To the ways of sin [G7]I’ll never go [C]back
As I travel on this [F]narrow [C]way
I’ll help the lost to find their [G7]way
I’ll shine my [C]light so the world can see
What a saving grace [G7]has done for [C]me
At the set of sun I’ll [F]be going [C]home
To rest my soul around the [G7]throne
I’ll bid [C]farewell in a little while
And change my tears [G7]for a lasting [C]smile
Who sang the the song I’ll Never Go Back?
– The song I’ll Never Go Back was sang by The Louvin Brothers.
Who is The Louvin Brothers?
– The Louvin Brothers were an American musical duo composed of brothers Ira (April 21, 1924 – June 20, 1965) and Charlie (July 7, 1927 – January 26, 2011) Louvin (nÃ© Loudermilk). The brothers are cousins to John D. Loudermilk, a Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame member.
The brothers wrote and performed secular country music, as well as fire-and-brimstone gospel music. Ira played virtuoso mandolin and generally sang lead vocal in the tenor range, while Charlie played rhythm guitar and offered supporting vocals in a lower pitch. They helped popularize the vocal technique of close harmony in country and country-rock.After becoming regulars at the Grand Ole Opry and scoring a string of hit singles in the late 1950s and early ’60s, the Louvin Brothers broke up in 1963 due in large part to Charlie growing tired of Ira’s addictions and reckless behavior. Ira died in a traffic accident in 1965. They were inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame in 2001, and Charlie died of cancer in 2011. Rolling Stone ranked the Louvin Brothers No. 4 on its list of the 20 Greatest Duos of All Time.
