    get on back vs get back any difference

    ''Get on back in the car. Did you hear what I said?"

    OR

    "Hey,man.As soon as you get rested,get on back and let's start practicing again."

    What would be the difference, if any, between "get back" and "get on back"?

    "Get on back" sound quite unnatural to me, perhaps because I'm a BrE speaker. I would use "get back" in the first and probably "come back" in the second.

    I was trying to copy sentences. Sorry for bad punctuation.I've been hearing people using it here and there in speech. Would there be any difference?

    Re: get on back vs get back any difference

    Because I don't use "get on back", it's difficult for me to comment on any difference. We'll need someone who does use it to give their opinion.

    I see you've edited your original post, but you've now changed "here" to "heare" which is still incorrect.
