About Three Steps to Heaven

"Three Steps to Heaven" is a song co-written and recorded by Eddie Cochran, released in 1960. The record became a posthumous UK number-one hit for Cochran following his death in a car accident in April 1960. In the US it did not reach the Billboard Hot 100. "Three Steps To Heaven" was recorded in January 1960 and featured Buddy Holly's Crickets on instruments. The song was written by Eddie Cochran and his brother Bob Cochran. David Bowie used the guitar chord riff in his 1971 song "Queen Bitch" on his album Hunky Dory. He later made reference to the song title in the lyrics of "It's No Game" on 1979's Scary Monsters (And Super Creeps).

Now there are three steps to heaven (three steps to heaven, three steps to heaven)
Just listen and you will plainly see (three steps to heaven, three steps to heaven)
And as life travels on
And things do go wrong 
Just follow steps one, two and three (three steps to heaven, three steps to heaven)

Step one, you find a girl you love
Step two, she falls in love with you
Step three, you kiss and hold her tightly
Yeah, that sure seems like heaven to me (three steps to heaven, three steps to heaven)
 
The formula for heaven's very simple (three steps to heaven, three steps to heaven)
Just follow the rules and you will see
And as life travels on and things do go wrong
Just follow steps one, two and three (three steps to heaven, three steps to heaven)

Step one, you find a girl you love
Step two, she falls in love with you
Step three, you kiss and hold her tightly
Yeah, that sure seems like heaven to me (three steps to heaven, three steps to heaven)

Just follow steps one, two and three

Eddie Cochran

Ray Edward 'Eddie' Cochran (October 3, 1938–April 17, 1960) was an American rock and roll pioneer who, in his brief career, had a small but lasting influence on rock music through his guitar playing. Cochran's rockabilly songs, such as "C'mon Everybody", "Somethin' Else", and "Summertime Blues", captured teenage frustration and desire in the late 1950s and early 1960s. He experimented with multitrack recording and overdubbing even on his earliest singles, and was also able to play piano, bass and drums. His image as a sharply dressed, rugged but good-looking young man with a rebellious attitude epitomized the stance of the Fifties rocker, and in death he achieved an iconic status. more »
