Music – 1987 – Jim Nabors – Back Home Again In Indiana – Performed At Start Of The 1987 Indy 500

Who would have ever thought that the popular “Southern country bumpkin” television personality Gomer Pyle….who was the naive….which was merely due to his pure, uncorrupted and non-degenerate mind….and extremely moral auto mechanic turned United States Marine Corps PFC, from Mayberry, North Carolina…. who  provided comic relief while being awestruck by the simplest of things….which resulted in the exclamation of his catchphrases, “Shazam!”, “Golly”, “Sur-prise, sur-prise, sur-prise!” and “shame, shame, shame!” served up in a Southern country drawl as appropriate…..would be able to provide such a wonderful rendition of the song Back Home Again In Indiana at the start of the Indy 500….with such a powerful and beautiful baritone voice…..as seen in this video herewith.
