Mr. Custer by Larry Verne

 

Please Mr. Custer, I don’t want to go, Forward Ho!

Larry Verne was working in a photo studio when three songwriters approached him about recording a song they had written. “Mr. Custer” was released during the late summer of 1960 and became the number one song in The United States for one week, beginning October 10, 1960

It was one of those novelty songs that resonated with the record buying public. It really was one of the better comedy singles to be released.

Larry Verve would only have one more chart hit. “Mr. Livingston” would reach number 75 late in the year, leaving “Mr. Custer” as his one shining and memorable moment.
