Laurie (Strange Things Happen)

Dickey Lee

 

Last night at the dance I met Laurie

So lovely and warm

An angel of a girl

Last night I fell in love with Laurie

Strange things happen in this world

 

As I walked her home she said it was her birthday

I pulled her close and said,

"Will I see you anymore?"

And suddenly she asked for my sweater

And said that she was very very cold.

 

    I kissed her goodnight at her door and started home

    Then thought about my sweater

    And went right back instead.

    I knocked at her door

    And a man appeared

    I told him why I'd come

    And he said,

 

    "You're wrong, son

    You weren't with my daughter

    How can you be so cruel

    To come to me this way

    My Laurie left this world on her birthday

    She died a year ago today."

 

    A strange force drew me to the graveyard

    I stood in the dark

    I saw the shadows wave

    And then I looked and I saw my sweater

    Lying there upon her grave

    Strange things happen in this world.

 

Other Dickie Lee song:

"Patches"
