Last Kiss

J. Frank Wilson and The Cavaliers (originally recorded by Wayne Cochran.  remade by Pearl Jam.)

 

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 ...

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 world.

 

Well, when I woke up, the rain was pourin' down.

There were people standing all around.

Something warm 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 world.
