Ray Peterson - Tell Laura I love her
Tekst: Ben Raleigh / Muziek: Jeff Barry
(1960)






Laura and Tommy were lovers
He wanted to give her ev’rything:
Flowers, presents and 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 ground
He was the youngest driver there
The crowd roared as they started the race
’Round the track they drove at a deadly pace



No one knows what happened that day
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 Laura prays
For her 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”
