Pick Me Up On Your Way Down


JCCFS Fall Festival 2018

If you’ve been to a Pressley Girls’ performance you’ve more than likely heard the story about the girls’ obsession with “The Golden Age of Country” infomercial.

They liked to have drove us crazy watching that thing. The Deer Hunter and I love all the old country songs too and I can see how the girls became star struck when they heard the likes of Marty Robbins and Ray Price, but after weeks of watching the infomercial it got a little old.

They’re telling the truth when they say they could sing 45 seconds of all the songs. Over the years they’ve managed to learn several of the songs all the way through.

It’s also true that we finally bought them the set of cds for Christmas.

All these years later they’re still listening to “The Golden Age of Country” and still learning songs from the cds, so it was a good investment on our part, especially since we got to quit watching the infomercial.

Most recently the girls learned the Charlie Walker track off disc 5 “Pick Me Up On Your Way Down.”

Hope you enjoyed the song!

    I must be getting old! I remember “Pick Me Up on Your Way Down” when it was on the charts! Later on I ran into him quite often on Music Row and around Nashville.

    Sounds good! Maybe they can make a CD “The Pressley Girls’ Golden Age of Country” ? That’d be nice 🙂 …just like all their songs are.

    It’s good to know I’m not the only person who became obsessed with the Golden Age Of Country infomercial. Who wouldn’t order a set after seeing the great presentation? The girls did a fabulous job singing one of my favorite songs from the set.

    Good job! I agree with TMC on the music. I sometimes ask my wife what class of music do you put a certain song in and she don’t know either.
    I went to humming that song as soon as I read the title.

    I sure remember Marty Robbins and Ray Price! I remember when my brother came back from Texas and gave me a record entitled “El Paso.” I didn’t realize at the time that the guy singing it was the same guy that sang “A White Sport Coat and a Pink Carnation, ” but I liked both. He was a fantastic entertainer.

    The girls really did a good job singing “Pick Me Up On Your Way Down” and that is a song with a tune that can run in your head after you have heard it.

    Good job, girls! Yes, the older songs are somehow clearer in both words and the music.
    I agree with TMC there is less distinction between various types of music.

    Marty Robbins is my my all time favorite and Roy Price right up there too. Your girls can’t go wrong singing the old time country music songs. Great job!

    That’s a golden oldie, and they did a good job, the older songs are still some of my most favorite, maybe it’s an age thing, but music during our time had a certain flavor, if that makes any sense, if your listening to country it sounded like country, if you listen to rock it sounded like rock and so on, seems most songs whether it’s country, rock, pop or whatever if you’ve heard one nowadays you’ve heard them all, they just sound all alike, they’re not separate sounds anymore.

      I agree. And the stuff teenagers listen to, I don’t even call music.
