Well, Marv, you have come to the right place. First let me give you a bit of a rundown on a few of the recordings that are available~~these are just the tip of the iceberg.
The Delmore Brothers Sand Mountain Blues County 110 King recordings from the mid 40s She Left Me Standing On The Mountain, Mississippi Shore, Last Old Shovel, 18 in all.
The Delmore Brothers Browns Ferry Blues County 116 1933-1940 recordings. The Nashville Blues, Rainin' On The Mountain, Blue Railroad Train, 18 more with only a little duplication.
The Blue Sky Boys (Bill and Earl Bolick) There'll Come A Time/Can't You Hear That Nightbird Crying? Bluetone 1001/2 Their first recordings from 1936. It is my understanding that this album, and another which picks up where it leaves off are no longer available, but are well worth the effort to find. I'm Just Here To Get My Baby Out Of Jail, Sunny Side Of Life, Where The Soul Never Dies, 21 in all.
The Blue Sky Boys Farm & Fun Time Favorites volume one Copper Creek 0125. Copper Creek has reissued about six CDs of their old radio shows from about 1946-1949 under this title and also as On Radio. Old-Time Camp Meeting, Kentucky, We Parted By The Riverside, 22 in all.
The Blue Sky Boys In Concert 1964 Rounder 11536 Concert at the University of Illinois which revitalized their career (They had retired in 1951) Are You From Dixie, After The Ball, The Last Letter, 22 in all.
The Blue Sky Boys Rounder 0052 Their last recordings from 1976. Don't This Road Look Rough And Rocky, The Lawson Family Tragedy, Green Grow The Lilacs, 14 in all.
That is just a few of what are available. I suggest that you go to the Elderly Search Site , and enter the word brothers (or anything else you want to enter, for that matter) That turned up 191 recordings, mostly off topic, but a great many of great interest to you, including the Monroe Brothers recordings from the 1930s, and the Louvin Brothers from the 1950s, including their album of Delmore Brothers songs which is definitely well worth having.

The Delmore Brothers' recording of NO DRUNKARD CAN ENTER THERE appears in the 4-CD set "Classic Cuts: 1933-1941," JSP CD 7727, 2004. I heard these lyrics in a sound sample:
…enter that Eden land fair,
Its happiness never can know.
No drunkard can enter that beautiful home.
My brother, quit drinking, I pray.
The savior is lovingly calling for you.
Oh, come and he'll save you today.

NO DRUNKARD CAN ENTER THERE
As sung by The Delmore Brothers on "Greatest Hits" (2010)
1. In God's word we read of a wonderful land where all of the pure ones shall go.
No drunkard can enter that Eden land fair; its happiness never can know.
CHORUS: No drunkard can enter that beautiful home; my brother, quit drinking, I pray.
The Savior is lovingly calling for you; oh, come and He'll save you today.
2. How sad is the fate of the poor drunken soul, no share in that heavenly home!
Down, down to the regions of woe he must sink, in anguish forever to roam.
3. His loved ones will enter that land of delight, while he from their presence is cast,
In darkness and mis'ry forever to mourn, nor long sin (?) for years of the past.
4. Dear brother, take warning before 'tis too late, and turn from that poisonous blow.
The Savior still loves you and waits your return; from drink He will save your poor soul.
