Last Kiss

J Frank Wilson & The Cavaliers

[Written by Wayne Cochran in 1962]


Well, where oh where can my baby be
The Lord took her away from me
She's gone to heaven
So I got to be good
So I can see my baby
When I leave this ol' world

We were out on a date in my Daddy's car
We hadn't driven very far
There in the road, straight ahead
The car was stalled, the engine was dead
I couldn't stop, so I swerved to the right
Never forget the sound that night
The cryin' tires, the bustin' glass
The painful scream that I heard last

Well, where oh where can my baby be
The Lord took her away from me
She's gone to heaven
So I got to be good
So I can see my baby
When I leave this ol' world

Well, when I woke up
The rain was pourin' down
There were people standing all around
Something warm a-running in my eyes
But I found my baby somehow that night
I raised her head and when she smiled and said
"Hold me darling for a little while"
I held her close
I kissed her our last kiss
I found the love that I knew I would miss
But now she's gone, even though I hold her tight
I lost my love ... my life, that night

Well, where oh where can my baby be
The Lord took her away from me
She's gone to heaven
So I got to be good
So I can see my baby
When I leave this ol' world

Rane,
Last Kiss is one of my favorite 50's songs. I liked it so much that I wanted to write a song with a similar feel to it. This is what I came up with. Enjoy, Jeff O'

"Horrible Crash In 55"
(Copr. 2003 Jeff O' Corbett (BMI)
"Jeff O's Retro Music" - http://www.jeffosretromusic.com)

Horrible crash in 55
Horrible crash in 55

He crashed and burned in 55
In a chicken race on highway 9
He didn't know it at the time
That highway nine was a dead end drive
The road stops dead top a mountainside
Then after that it's a Hell of a ride

Horrible crash in 55
Horrible crash in 55

A thousand foot drop down the mountainside
Into a river-bed he rode his ride
On the way down he flipped five times
Then disappeared under the water line
No way on earth that he could survive
It looked like he was buried alive

Everybody thought that he was through
He disappeared with out a clue
We thought no one could ever survive
That deadly horrible crash in 55

Horrible crash in 55
Horrible crash in 55

Twenty years had passed to our surprise
When he reappeared on highway nine
Crusin in the same model forty-nine
He drove we thought to his demise
We all thanked the Lord that he survived
That deadly horrible crash in 55

Horrible crash in 55
Horrible crash in 55
Horrible crash in 55
Horrible crash in 55

Wayne Cochran wrote and recorded the song in 1961 but it was a minor hit. However, J.Frank Wilson & The Cavaliers took it to number 2 on the billboard charts in 1964, so that is the best known version. It was also released in 1973 by the Canadian group Wednesday and again by Pearl Jam around the end of the 90s.
