Tell Laura I Love Her

( Ray Peterson )

 

Laura and Tommy were lovers

He wanted to give her everything

Flowers, presents,

But most of all, a wedding ring

 

He saw a sign for a stock car race

A thousand dollar prize it read

He couldn't get Laura on the phone

So to her mother, Tommy said

 

Tell Laura I love her

Tell Laura I need her

Tell Laura I may be late

I've something to do, that cannot wait

 

He drove his car to the racing grounds

He was the youngest driver there

The crowed roared as they started the race

Around the track they drove at a deadly pace

 

No one knows what happened that day

Or how his car overturned in flames

But as they pulled him from the twisted wreck

With his dying breath, they heard him say

 

Tell Laura I love her

Tell Laura I need her

Tell Laura not to cry

My love for her will never die

 

Now in the chapel where Laura prays

For her poor Tommy, who passed away

It was just for Laura he lived and died

Alone in the chapel she can hear him cry

 

Tell Laura I love her

Tell Laura I need her

Tell Laura not to cry

My love for her will never die

 

Tell Laura I love her

Tell Laura I need her

Tell Laura not to cry

My love for her will never die
