THERES A MEETING HERE TONIGHT
The Limeliters never had a single big hit but several songs, including this one, are always
associated with the trio. The group started performing together in the late fifties, with
Glenn Yarbrough being one of the originals. They released their first album in 1960. This
song is from their second. Yarbrough left in 1963 and the group disbanded in 1965. They
reunited several times and a new Limeliters, sans Yarbrough, began performing in the
80’s. The Limeliters still perfom and this song is on a recent CD.
Get you ready there’s a
Meeting here tonight
Come along
There’s a meeting here tonight
I know you by your daily walk there’s a meeting here tonight
Camp meeting in the wilderness
There’s a meeting here tonight
I know it’s among the Methodist
There’s a meeting here tonight
My father says it is the best
There’s a meeting here tonight
To live and die a Methodist
There’s a meeting here tonight
There’s fire in the East, there’s fire in the West
There’s a meeting here tonight
I know it’s among the Methodist
There’s a meeting here tonigh
