Buddy Holly

Charles Hardin Holley (September 7, 1936 – February 3, 1959), known professionally as Buddy Holly, was a Texan singer-songwriter and a pioneer of rock and roll. Although his success lasted only a year and a half before his death in an airplane crash, Holly is described by critic Bruce Eder as "the single most influential creative force in early rock and roll." His works and innovations inspired and influenced contemporary and later musicians, notably The Beatles, Elvis Costello, The Rolling Stones, Don McLean, Bob Dylan, Steve Winwood, and Eric Clapton, and exerted a profound influence on popular music.

Arrested on charges of unemployment 
He was sitting in the witness stand 
The judge's wife called up the district attorney 
Said free that brown eyed man 
You want your job you better free that brown eyed man 

Flying across the desert in a TWA 
I saw a woman walking across the sand 
She been a-walkin' thirty miles en route to Bombay 
To reach a brown eyed handsome man 
Her destination was a brown eyed handsome man 

Way back in history three thousand years 
Back ever since the world began 
There's been a whole lot of good women shedding tears 
For a brown eyed handsome man 
A lot of trouble, was a brown eyed handsome man 

Well the beautiful daughter couldn't make up her mind 
Between a doctor and a lawyer man 
Her mother told her darling go out and find yourself 
A brown eyed handsome man 
That's what your daddy is a brown eyed handsome man 

Well DeMilo's Venus was a beautiful lass 
She had the world in the palm of her hand 
But she lost both her arms in a wrestling match 
To win a brown eyed handsome man 
She fought and won herself a brown eyed handsome man 

Well, two, three the count with nobody on 
He hit a high fly into the stand 
Rounding third he was headed for home 
It was a brown eyed handsome man 
That won the game, it was a brown eyed handsome man
