Subject: Do you know the words to Rocky?

There is a song called "Rocky" and the chorus goes like this:

"Rocky I've never been in love before don't think I can do it"

It goes through a couple meeting in high school and having a baby and then the wife dies. It is the most beautiful song that I would love to have the words to. Please e-mail me at Coons@taft.pvt.k12.ct.us if you have them or know where to find them. Tha

OK, it's a tearjerker, and there's a long tradition of tearjerkers being posted at Mudcat. Lyrics are available several places on the 'Net, notably at this famous Czech site.

ROCKY
(Jay Stevens)
« © '75 Strawberry Hill Music »

Alone until my eighteenth year, we met four springs ago.
She was shy and had a fear of things she did not know,
But we got it on together in such a super way.
We held each other close at night and traded dreams each day.

She said, "Rocky, I've never been in love before. Don't know if I can do it,
But if you let me lean on you, take my hand; I might get through it, through it."
I said, "Baby, oh, sweet baby, it's love that sets us free,
And God knows if the world should end, your love is safe with me."

We found an old gray house and you would not believe the way
We worked at night to fix it up, took classes in the day,
Painting walls and sipping wine, sleeping on the floor,
With so much love for just two, soon we found there'd be one more.

And she said, "Rocky, I've never had a baby before. Don't know if I can do it,
But if you let me lean on you, take my hand; I might get through it, through it."
I said, "Baby, oh, sweet baby, it's love that sets us free,
And God knows if the world should end, your love is safe with me."

We had lots of problems then, but we had lots of fun,
Like the birthday party when our baby girl turned one.
I was proud and satisfied. Life had so much to give,
Till the day they told me that she didn't have long to live.

She said, "Rocky, I never had to die before. Don't know if I can do it...."

Now it's back to two again, the little girl and I,
Who looks so much like her sweet mother, sometimes it makes me cry.
I sleep alone at nights again. I walk alone each day,
And sometimes when I'm about to give in, I hear her sweet voice say to me:

"Rocky, you know you've been alone before. You know you can do it,
But if you'd like to lean on me, take my hand; I'll help you through it, through it."
I said, "Baby, oh, sweet baby, it's love that sets us free,
And God knows if the world should end, your love is safe with me."

She said, "Rocky, you know...."

[Recorded by Dickey Lee on "Rocky," RCA Victor APL1-1243, 1975. Also recorded by Austin Roberts.]
