Carry Me Home is a song by Australian hard rock band AC/DC. It is the b-side to the song "Dog Eat Dog" and was recorded at Vineyard Studios in England, along with "Love at First Feel", "Cold Hearted Man" and an early version of "Whole Lotta Rosie", "Dirty Eyes", which was released in the 1997 box set Bonfire. These recordings are from the only studio session outside of Australia while Mark Evans was in the band. The track Carry Me Home has been included on the 2009 Backtracks box set, but before then it was only available on the 'Dog Eat Dog' single, this classifing it as a rare track to many fans before that release. It is available, however, on many bootlegs.

The song's lyrics, ereily, also mimics the the night in question in which the singer, Bon Scott, died, which may have contributed to it's limited release.


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 breaking and I'd hate to spoil the show

But I've just spent next week's 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
Won't you carry me home?
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 heavin', hanging upside down
And you're getting up and leaving, you think I'm gonna drown

Carry me home
Won't you carry me home?
Carry me home

Carry me home
Won't you carry me home?
Carry me home
