Last Kiss

About Last Kiss

"Last Kiss" is a song released by Wayne Cochran in 1961 on the Gala label. It failed to do well on the charts. Cochran subsequently re-recorded his song for the King label in 1963. It was later revived by J. Frank Wilson and the Cavaliers, Pearl Jam and several international artists, including the Canadian group Wednesday, with varying degrees of success. The song was one of several teen tragedy songs from that period. The song's opening lyrics mirror the opening lyrics of Septimus Winner's "Der Deitcher's Dog".

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 crying tires, the busting 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 pouring 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 then 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
