Tell Laura I Love Her

Song Author Ray Peterson Performer: The Everly Brothers Submitted by: Anonymous

[G]Tommy and Laura [C]were lovers
He [G]wanted to give her [C]everything
[Em]Flowers [Am]presents and [D7]most of all a wedding ring

[G]He saw a sign for a [C]stock car race
[G]A thousand dollar [C]prize it read
He [Em]couldn´t get Laura [Am]on the phone
[D7]So to her mother Tommy said

[G]Tell Laura I love her tell Laura I [Am]need her
Tell Laura I [G]may be late I´ve [Am]something to do
[D7]That cannot [G]wait

He drove his car to the [C]racing ground
[G]He was the youngest [C]driver there
The crowd [Em]roared as they started the [Am]race   
Round the [D7]track they drove at a deadly pace

[G]No-one knows what [C]happened that day
[G]How his car over[C]turned in flames
But [Em]as they pulled him from the [Am]twisted wreck
With his [D7]dying breath they heard him say

[G]Tell Laura I love her tell Laura I [Am]need her
Tell Laura [G]not to cry my [Am]love for her
[D7]Will never [G]die  

Now in the chapel [C]Laura prays
[G]For her Tommy who [C]passed away
It was [Em]just for Laura he [Am]lived and died
[D7]Alone in the chapel she can hear him cry
[G]Tell Laura I love her tell Laura I [Am]need her
Tell Laura [G]not to cry my [Am]love for her
[D7]Will never [G]die  

My [Am]love for her [D7]will never [G]die  


Tommy and Laura were lovers
He wanted to give her everything
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

My love for her will never die
