"Carry Me Home" as written by Niklas Anders Andersson, Kenny Dick Hakansson, Robert Matz Eriksson, Anders Lindstrom and Robert Dahlquist....
The bartender's working on a late night shift
Cheap bums and blondes and barmaids on a midnight drift.
And the dance band's playing the same old slam
I'm sinking whiskey and you're sipping fine wine

I don't know what it is you're trying to prove
Well it should be you but it's me who can hardly move
And I've got my reputation lying on the line
Come on baby, be a good dog and help the blind

Oh won't you carry me home
Won't you carry me home
Won't you carry me home
(like a truck, pick me up)

You ain't no lady but you've sure got taste in men
That head of yours has got you by time and time again
My arms and legs are aching and my head's about to blow
And your back's been breakin' and I'd hate to spoil the show

But I've just spent next weeks wages and I'm right out of coin
But you want more and it's half past four and they want to close the joint
But we can't afford a taxi, and it's too late for the bus
But I've been told by friends of mine you're someone I can trust

Carry me home
Oh won't you carry me home
Ohh! Carry me home
(don't let me lie here in all this beer)

You drank all your booze and half of mine
I'm bleary eyed and you're waiting for the sunshine (to come and kill me)
Just like the man who threw me on the floor
Don't matter, while I'm down here I might as well try and find the fucking door

Excuse me, have you seen it? it's about this big
And have you got a plastic bag 'cause I'm gonna be sick
I'm dead drunk and heave'n hanging upside down
And you're getting up and leaving, you think I'm gonna drown

Carry me home
Yeah won't you carry me home
(I need your help)
Carry me home

Carry me home
Oh won't you carry me home
Yeah carry me home

    General CommentThis song is brilliant and epitomises the legend that is Bon Scott. I wish it had been released on one of their albums of the time. It's got AC/DC written all over it.

    General CommentSomehow I don't doubt that bon Scott was actually drunk when he sang the last verse.

    General CommentOnly three comments? Has no one else noticed that Bon Scott pretty much PREDICTED his own death, almost to the last detail?

    "I'm dead drunk and heaving, hanging upside-down

    And you're getting up and leaving; you think I'm gonna drown"

    Ring a bell, anyone? Bon Scott died after getting drunk at a bar one night, and after being driven home by a friend, he was left in the car overnight. This friend of his came back the next morning and Bon was dead. He had drowned in his own vomit. His death probably could have been avoided if his friend had carried him home.

    ... I don't know. It just kinda creeped me out the first time I heard this song. It's surprising to me that no one's said anything about it yet.
