Jimmy Love

Album: single, Triodex 110 (1961)
  • (spoken)
    Today's my wedding day,
    I've waited oh, so long
    We'll all kneel down to pray
    And then they'll play our song.

    (sung)
    The flowers will smell so sweet
    The preacher's voice will ring
    Our friends will fill every seat
    My folks won't say a thing

    Oh, I'm going to the chapel, Jimmy Love
    I've prayed to be your bride --
    I'm going to the chapel, Jimmy Love
    I'll soon be by your side.

    I remember how we first met,
    And how my heart was stirred
    You danced with no one else and yet
    You hardly said a word.

    But later on that very night,
    You kissed me hard and fast
    I knew then you were Mr. Right
    I'd found you now at last.

    Oh, I'm going to the chapel, Jimmy Love
    I've prayed to be your bride --
    I'm going to the chapel, Jimmy Love
    I'll soon be by your side.

    (spoken)
    It rained a few nights ago
    I walked home with Jim
    I didn't mind the storm -- oh no,
    Because I was with him.

    When suddenly lightning flashed
    And struck a tree above,
    And with a dreadful roar it crashed
    And killed my Jimmy Love.

    (Sung)
    Oh, I'm going to the chapel, Jimmy Love,
    To say -- our last goodbye --
    I'm going to the chapel, Jimmy Love --
    But our love
    Will never die!
