I just heard this this weekend -- I can't remember the name of it either, but Pearl Jam has just done a new cover of it. Pearl Jam, fer heaven's sakes. (Who was the original artist? Does anyone remember??)

The rest of that stanza is, "She's gone to heaven so I've got to be good, so I can see my baby when I leave this world..." I was thinking "Teen Angel," but that's something different. Same sentiment, however.

The song is, I believe, called "Last Kiss". I have it on an old 45 (remember those???) and will look for it for the artist. campfire

Aha - that didn't take long! My 45 is by a group called "Wednesday" - the songwriter is "M. Cochran". Its on Sussex Records.

Lyrics to the best of my rememberability:

We were out on a date in my daddy's car
We hadn't driven very far
There in the road, straight ahead
A car was stalled, the engine was dead
I couldn't stop so I swerved to the right
I'll never forget the sounds that night
Crying tires and bustin" glass
The painful scream that I heard last

Chorus:
Where oh where can my Baby be?
The Lord took her away from me
She's gone to heaven so I've got to be good
So I can see my baby when I leave this world.

There is a second and perhaps third verse, but thats the extent of my memory - I can't play the 45 right now. I'll give it a listen tomorrow and correct anything above and add the rest - unless someone beats me to it. That happens alot around here.

By the way, KC, I have "Teen Angel", too, by Mark Dinning. Maybe I was a morbid teenager.

According to my research, this was originally done by J. Frank Wilson and the Cavaliers and is on their album of the same name "Last Kiss"; a sample of which can be heard by clicking here

I do this in a teen tragedy medley with Running Bear, Ebony Eyes, Patches and Teen Angel. Next, I'm gonna add Leader of the Pack.

THE LAST KISS
Written by Wayne Cochran, 1961
As recorded by J. Frank Wilson, 1964

CHORUS: 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 world.

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

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 then 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. CHORUS

I'm looking for words to a song thats listed on a homemade tape I have as "Twas Pretty to be in Ballinderry". The first three lines of the chorus start out with "Twas pretty to be..." It's a lovely tune. Anybody know this one?

Geez, I'm glad to read Mick's comment......I was reading this thread and getting really depressed and I was about to suggest, since you're requesting a name, "Song Old Farts Know".......Thankfully Mick has said it all.

I know what you mean guys, here's a true story...

The GOOD NEWS - I found some sheet music of a song I liked as a teenager.

The BAD NEWS - I found it in an antique store!

Tiger - My band "Sundance" in St. Croix USVI 1970's used to also do almost the same medley of car crash songs. Our bass player was paralyzed below the waist from a car crash, and it was his idea to do the medley. (By the way, he has made it big now as a writer - he's Jonathan Nasaw, and he's written "The World on Blood" and "Shadows," among others).
Footnote to this story: our drummer had lost three fingers in a logging accident, and we used to announce "the band's gonna take a break while our drummer changes from sticks to brushes" (he had to tie them to his hand).
