DON'T COME BACK KNOCKING  

(Buddy Holly - Sue Parrish)

 

 

 

Well, I found you're a rover and it's made me blue  

Like a talent scout you want some love that's new  

Don't come back knocking at my heart's closed door  

For I won't be home, don't call an' knock no more  

 

Well, when you went away and left me all alone  

While you played around I waited at home  

Don't come back knocking at my heart's closed door  

For I won't be home, don't call an' knock no more  

 

You had all my heart, it was your very own  

You weren't satisfied, now I'll go on alone  

Don't come back knocking at my heart's closed door  

For I won't be home, don't call an' knock no more  

 

(Oh, let's really knock it this time boys!)  

 

Well, pity those with hearts so empty and cold  

To never know true love, a treasure to hold  

Don't come back knocking at my heart's closed door  

For I won't be home, don't call an' knock no more  

 

 

 

DOOR TO MY HEART  

(Bob Montgomery)

 

 

I'll open the door and let you find me  

The door to my heart, your love behind me  

But you were not willing to just step insi-i-ide  

Now the door to my heart i-is still open wide  

 

I hoped you would enter and stay there with me  

When I opened the door to let your love come in  

Now you've shunned my ho-o-ope, my love and my pri-i-ide  

But the door to my heart i-is still open wide  

 

Now you've shunned my ho-o-ope, my love and my pri-i-ide  

But the door to my heart i-is still open wide  

 

 

  

DOWN THE LINE  

(Buddy Holly - Bob Montgomery)

 

 

Well, my ol' car's a-rollin' down the line  

Thoughts of my baby runnin' through my mind  

She's a-waitin' for me, I gotta be on time  

I gotta go, go, go, go, go, go, go  

I gotta go, go, go, go, go, go, go  

 

 

Well, the white marker's flying off the road below  

Man, I'm a-really flyin' low  

My baby's waitin', I can't go slow  

I gotta go, go, go, go, go, go, go  

I gotta go, go, go, go, go, go, go  

 

 

Well, a big policeman pulled alongside a-me  

He said, "Boy you ain't quite as fast as me!"  

I showed him a picture of that baby of mine  

He said, "Boy you gotta roll on down that line !"  

 

 

Well, my ol' car's a-rollin' down the line  

Thoughts of my baby runnin' through my mind  

She's a-waitin' for me, I gotta be on time  

I gotta go, go, go, go, go, go, go  

I gotta go, go, go, go, go, go, go  

 

 

Repeat from the beginning  

 

Roll on down the line  

 

  

 

 

DROWN IN MY OWN TEARS  

(Ray Charles)

 

  

Wet rains the tear into my eyes  

when I began to realize  

I cried so much since you been gone  

I guess I'll drown in my own tears  

 

I've really cried just like a child  

My poor little tears are running wild  

If you don't think you'll be home soon  

I guess I'll drown, oh-yeah, in my own tears  

 

I know it's true, into each life  

Well, some rain, rain must fall  

Clouds over here without you  

It keeps a-rainin' more and more  

 

Why can't you come on home  

oh-yes, so I won't be all alone  

 

If you don't think, you'll be home soon  

I guess I'll drown in my own tears  

Oh don't let me drown in my own tears  

 

 

  

 

EARLY IN THE MORNING  

(Bobby Darin - Woody Harris)

  

 

Well! you're gonna miss me  

Early in the morning, one of these days, oh yeah  

Well, you're gonna want me  

Early in the morning  

When I'm away... hey!, hey!, don't ya know  

 

Yes, you'll be sorry for the times I cried  

You'll be sorry for the times you lied  

Well, you're gonna miss me  

Early in the morning, one of these days, oh yeah  

 

Well, you know a rolling stone (rolling stone)  

Don't gather no moss (gather no moss)  

And you cross your bridge (cross your bridge)  

When it's time to cross (time to cross)  

 

Well, you broke my heart (broke my heart)  

When you said goodbye (said goodbye)  

Now the milk is spilt but, you're gonna cry!  

 

Yeah, early in the morning  

You're gonna know, that I was right  

Oh, yeah!, yeah!, early in the morning  

When there's nobody  

To hold you tight... oh, oh, oh!!  

 

Well, you're gonna want me want me bad  

You're gonna miss the best man you ever had  

Yes, you're gonna miss me  

Early in the morning, one of these days, oh yeah  

 

We---ll  

 

We--ll, you're gonna want me a-want me bad  

You'll miss the best man you ever had  

Yes, you're gonna want me  

You're gonna miss me a-one of these days, yeah yeah yeah  

 

 

 

 

EVERYDAY  

(Charles Hardin - Norman Petty)

 

 

 Everyday it's a-gettin' closer

Goin' faster than a rollercoaster  

Love like yours will surely come my way  

A-hey, a-hey-hey  

 

Everyday it's a-gettin' faster  

Everyone said, "Go ahead and ask her"  

Love like yours will surely come my way  

A-hey, a-hey-hey  

 

Everyday seems a little longer  

Every way love's a little stronger  

Come what may  

Do you ever long for true love from me  

 

Everyday it's a-gettin' closer  

Goin' faster than a rollercoaster  

Love like yours will surely come my way  

A-hey, a-hey-hey  

 

Everyday seems a little longer  

Every way love's a little stronger  

Come what may  

Do you ever long for true love from me  

 

Everyday it's a-gettin' closer  

Goin' faster than a rollercoaster  

Love like yours will surely come my way  

A-hey, a-hey-hey  

Love like yours will surely come my way  

 

  

 

FLOWER OF MY HEART 

(Bob Montgomery - Don Guess)

 

Do you think of me darlin'  

While we're many miles apart  

Oh please be true to me my darlin'  

For you are the flower of my heart  

 

Many nights I've sat alone  

And I've worried over you  

But I'll never worry dear  

If your love is true  

 

Please come back to me my darlin'  

For I can't live while we're apart  

Come back, come back to me my darlin'  

For you are the flower of my heart  

 

Many nights I've sat alone  

And I've worried over you  

But I'll never worry dear  

If your love is true  

 

Please come back to me my darlin'  

For I can't live while we're apart  

Come back, come back to me my darlin'  

For you are the flower of my heart  

 

 

 

 

FOOL'S  PARADISE   

(Sonny Le Glaire - Horace Linsley - Norman Petty)

 

 

You took me up to heaven  

When you took me in your arms  

I was dazzled by your kisses  

Blinded by your charms  

 

I was lost in a fool's paradise  

Good and lost in a fool's paradise  

When you told me that you loved me  

I gave my heart to you  

 

And I wondered if there could be  

Any truth in love so new  

I was lost in a fool's paradise  

Good and lost in a fool's paradise  

 

The whole world was my kingdom  

And your love the gem in my crown  

Then I saw you glance at a new romance  

And my love came tumbling down  

 

Though you treat me kind-a coolish  

And may never let me know  

That you think I'm being foolish  

Because I love you so  

 

I'll still get lost in a fool's paradise  

Lost with you in a fool's paradise  

Though you treat me kind-a coolish  

And may never let me know  

 

That you think I'm being foo-oo-oo-lish  

Because I love you so  

I'll still get lost in a fool's paradise  

Lost with you in a fool's paradise  

Lost with you in a fool's paradise  

 

 

  

GIRL ON MY MIND  

(Don Guess)

 

 

Oh, girl on my mind  

Please come back to me  

I love you with all my heart  

With you I want to be  

 

I want you to be near me  

Is that too much to ask?  

Oh, girl on my mind  

Please say you will be mine  

 

You are the one and the only  

You are mine to have and to love  

No one could ask for more  

You're mine to adore  

 

Girl on my mind  

Please say you will be mine  

You are the one and the only  

You are mine to have and to love  

 

No one could ask for more  

You're mine to adore  

Girl on my mind  

Please say you will be mine  

 

 

 

GONE  

(Smokey Rogers)

 

 

Now you're gone  

The sun, the moon, the stars in the sky  

Know the reason why-y I cry  

I'm all alone, I know I'm wrong, now you're gone  

 

Oh-oh-oh oh-oh-oh oh-oh-oh-oh what I'd give  

For the lifetime I've wasted  

The love that I've tasted  

I know I'm wrong, I'm all alone now you're gone

GOTTA  GET  YOU  NEAR  ME  BLUES   

(Bob Montgomery)

 

 

 

Tonight I'm so blue, I'm thinking of you  

I got those 'gotta get you near me blues'  

So hurry here to me, darling can't you see  

I got those 'gotta get you near me blues'  

 

Have you ever had this feeling that I'm speaking of  

To be so far away from the one that you love  

So hurry here to me, darling can't you see  

I got those 'gotta get you near me blues'  

 

Gonna head it on back to our country home  

I got those 'gotta get you near me blues'  

And when I get there dear, no more will I roam  

I got those 'gotta get you near me blues'  

 

There's a big yellow moon smiling down from above  

That's no good to me without the one that I love  

So hurry here to me, darling can't you see  

I got those 'gotta get you near me blues'  

 

There's a big yellow moon smiling down from above  

That's no good to me without the one that I love  

So hurry here to me, darling can't you see  

I got those 'gotta get you near me blues'  

 

 

 

 

HAVE  YOU  EVER  BEEN  LONELY ?  

(Peter DeRose - George Brown)

 

  

Have you ever been lonely ?  

Have you ever been blue ?  

Have you ever loved someone  

Just as I love you ?  

 

Can't you see I'm sorry  

For each mistake I've made ?  

Can't you see I've changed dear ?  

Can't you see I've paid ?  

 

Be a little forgiving,  

Take me back to your heart.  

How can I go on living  

While we're apart ?  

 

If you knew what I've been through  

Then you'd know why I ask you  

Have you ever been lonely ?  

Have you ever been blue ?  

 

Mother ! ! !  

 

 

 

 

 

HEARTBEAT

  (Bob Montgomery - Norman Petty)

 

 

Heartbeat, why do you miss when my baby kisses me ?  

Heartbeat, why does a love kiss stay in my memory ?  

Riddle-dee-pat, I know that new love thrills me  

I know that true love will be-e-e-e-e-e  

Heartbeat, why do you miss when my baby kisses me ?  

 

Heartbeat, why do you skip when my baby's lips meet mine ?  

Heartbeat, why do you flip, then give me a skip beat sign ?  

Riddle-dee-pat, and sing to me love's story  

And bring to me love's glory-ee-ee-a-ee  

Heartbeat, why do you miss when my baby kisses me ?
