I GAMBLED MY HEART  

(Buddy Holly - Bob Montgomery)

 

 

When you love someone

And then you found you've lost

Why must a true heart be left to pay the cost

Why must a heart that has been true

Be broken and sad, so empty and blue

 

I gambled my heart and I lost it to you

Now I'll spend my life wondering why I love you

Someday you'll know why I'm so blue

When you've gambled your heart

And you've lost it too

 

Why must it be the one you want most of all

They'll build you up and then let you fall

They'll lead you on, you'll think that they're true

They'll love you then leave you so empty and blue

I gambled my heart and I lost it to you

 

Now I'll spend my life wondering why I love you

Someday you'll know why I'm so blue

When you've gambled your heart

And you've lost it too

 

 

I GUESS I WAS JUST A FOOL  

(Buddy Holly)

 

 

I thought that I could forget

Even try to tell myself we never met

Though you try you can't deny

The beating of your heart

Though you try you can't deny

The true love when it starts

I guess that I was just a fool

 

I guess I'll go on loving you

Even though I know my love will never do

Though you try you can't deny

The beating of your heart

Though you try you can't deny

The true love when it starts

I guess that I was just a fool

 

 

 

 

I'M CHANGING ALL THOSE CHANGES  

                                             (Buddy Holly) 

 

 

 

I-I-I should have reconsidered all those things I said I'd do

So now I'm changing all those changes

That I made when I left you

 

Sweetheart I'm changing all those changes

That I made when I left you

Because I made those changes when I thought you were untrue

 

A-but now you're gone I've found I'm wrong

And there's a-nothing I can do

Except to change up all those changes

That I made when I left you

 

I-I-I didn't stop to thi-ink, I just left without a care

And now I know I'm wrong and I can't find you anywhere

I should have reconsidered all those things I said I'd do

 

So now I'm changing all those changes

That I made when I left you

I'M GONNA SET MY FOOT DOWN  

(Buddy Holly)

 

 

We-ell, you say you're mine, but baby you don't show it

You better fly right, for before you know it

I'm a-going to set my foot right down on you

I wanna stop your struttin', baby, 'til you say you're through

 

I'm gonna turn you around and put you upside down

If that don't stop your runnin' around

I'm a-going to set my foot right down on you

I wanna stop your struttin', baby, 'til you say you're through

 

A-well, you tell me this a-and you tell me that

How come your dog bites me instead of that other cat

I'm a-gonna set my foot right down on you

Gonna stop your struttin', baby, 'til you say you're through

 

Well, you say you're mine, but baby you don't show it

You better fly right, 'cause before you know it

I'm a-going to set my foot right down on you

I wanna stop your struttin', baby 'til you say you're through

 

I wanna turn you around and put you upside down

If that don't stop your slippin' around

I'm a-going to set my foot right down on you

I wanna stop your struttin', baby, 'til you say you're through

 

A-well, you tell me this and then you tell me that

How come your dog bites me instead of that other cat

I'm a-gonna set my foot right down on you

I wanna stop your struttin',

baby 'til you say you're through

 

 

 

 

I'M LOOKING FOR SOMEONE TO LOVE  

(Buddy Holly - Norman Petty)

 

 

Stayin' at home, waitin' for you

Just won't get it 'cause you say we're thru

Well I'm lookin' for someone to love

I'm lookin' for someone to love

 

Well if you're not here

But baby, I don't care

Because I'm lookin' for someone to love

 

Playin' the field all day long

Since I found out I was wronged

Well I'm lookin' for someone to love

I'm lookin' for someone to love

 

Well if you're not here

But baby I don't care

'Cause I'm lookin' for someone to love

 

Caught myself, thinkin' of you

You can't love me and an other one too

Well I'm lookin' for someone to love

I'm lookin' for someone to love

 

Well if you're not here

But baby I don't care

Because I'm lookin' for someone to love

 

Drunk man, street car

Foot slipped, there you are

Well I'm lookin' for someone to love

I'm a-lookin' for someone to love

 

Well if you're not here

But baby I don't care

Because I'm a-lookin' for someone to love

I'm lookin' for someone to love

I'm lookin' for someone to love

I'm lookin' for someone to love

I'm lookin' for someone to love

 

 

 

 

 

IT DOESN'T MATTER ANYMORE 

(Paul Anka)

 

 

There you go and baby here am I

Well you left me here so I could sit and cry

Golly gee what have you done to me

Well I guess it doesn't matter anymore

 

Do you remember baby last September

How you held me tight each and every night

Oh baby how you drove me crazy

But I guess it doesn't matter any more

 

There's no use in me a-cryin'

I've done everything and now I'm sick of trying

I've thrown away my nights, wasted all my days over you

 

Now you go your way baby and I'll go mine

Now and forever 'till the end of time

And I'll find somebody new and baby

We'll say we're through and you won't matter any more

 

There's no use in me a-cryin'

I've done everything and now I'm sick of trying

I've thrown away my nights, wasted all my days over you

 

Now you go your way baby and I'll go mine

Now and forever 'till the end of time

And I'll find somebody new and baby

We'll say we're through and you won't matter any more

 

 

 

 

IT'S NOT MY FAULT  

(Ben Hall - Weldon Myrick)

 

  

It's not my fault

If you're not falling in love with me

It's not my fault

If our future love you can't see

I should have known I could never win your hand

I know I can't hold your heart with just a wedding band

 

I'm just a fool in your broken chain of hearts

Each one is falling now and I can't hold the parts

I guess you want one of those on to be free

It's not my fault

If you're not falling in love with me

 

 

 

 

 

 

IT'S SO EASY 

(Buddy Holly - Norman Petty)

 

 

It’s so easy to fall in love

It's so easy to fall in love

 

People tell me love's for fools

So here I go breaking all of the rules

 

It seems so easy

(O-o-oh) So doggone easy

(Mm—mm-mm) It seems so easy

Where you're concerned

My heart has learned

 

It's so easy to fall in love

It's so easy to fall in love

It's so easy to fall in love

It's so easy to fall in love

 

Look into your heart and see

What your love book has set apart for me

 

It seems so easy

(O-o-oh) So doggone easy

(Mm—mm-mm) It seems so easy

Where you're concerned

My heart has learned

 

It's so easy to fall in love

It's so easy to fall in love

 

We-ell it's so easy

(Mm—mm-mm) So doggone easy

(Mm—mm-mm) It seems so easy

Well, where you're concerned

My heart has learned

 

It's so easy to fall in love

It's so easy to fall in love

 

 

 

 

IT'S TOO LATE 

(Chuck Willis)

 

 

It's too late, she's gone

It's too late, my baby's gone

 

Wish I had told her she was my only one

But it's too late, she's gone

 

It's a weak man that cries

So I guess I best dry my eyes

 

Guess I will miss her more than anyone

But it's too late, she's gone

 

She's gone, yeah she's gone

She's gone, my baby's gone

 

She's gone, yeah she's gone

Where can my baby be?

 

I wonder does she know

When she left me it hurt me so

 

I need your lovin' please don't make me weep

And tell me it's not too late

 

I need your lovin' please don't make me weep

And tell me it's not too late

 

 

 

 

KEEP ON SHINING ON

(Words & Music by Peter Carroll, 2006)

 

 

 

 

Hey Mr Holly, don’t be lonesome tonight

Hey Buddy, buddy, all your friends have found delight

You had a rhythm with those songs

And the words just came out right

Any broken heart can feel your world every time

 

Now all these embers are all burning bright for you

Up in the land of dreams, we know you love us too

You touched a place in our hearts

Cos you knew we had the blues

Now we all keep on shining on

 

Chorus

 

Everyday you seem to know me

Anytime I’m feeling blue

Many times I’ve closed my eyes and cried

In a broken world of lonely hearts so true

 

One of these days, were gonna meet you in the sky

Standing with your Stratocaster, That’ll Be The Day I Die

And how we learned them songs

With Buddy and the guitar gone

And The Crickets keep us shining on

 

And we all keep on shining on

And we all keep on shining on

And we all keep on shining on

 

                            

 

 

 

 

 

LA BAMBA

( Ritchie Valens )

           

 

Para bailar La Bamba,

Para bailar La Bamba,

se necessita una poca de gracia

Una poca de gracia,

pa mi, pa ti.

 

Ay arriba arriba,

ay arriba arriba,

por ti sere,

por ti sere,

por ti sere.

 

Yo no soy marinero,

yo no soy marinero,

soy capitan.

Soy capitan,

soy capitan.

 

 

 

 

LAST NIGHT

(Joe Mauldin - Norman Petty)

 

 

 

Last night as I watched the stars from my window

I prayed Lord above to guide and protect you

Tho' I'm not wanted now, I still love you somehow

That is my only prayer, for you

 

Last night, as I gazed through the mist in my eyes

I wanted you here to hold you so near

But silence tells me, you didn't hear my plea

 

I missed you so much since you left me

My heart ached apart since you left me

Tho' I'm not wanted now, I still love you somehow

That is my only prayer, for you

 

 

 

 

 

LEARNING THE GAME

(Buddy Holly)

 

 

 

Hearts that are broken and love that's untrue

These go with learnin' the game

When you love her and she doesn't love you

You're only learnin' the game

 

When she says that you're the only one she'll ever love

Then you find that you are not the one she's thinking of

Feeling so sad and you're all alone and blue

That's when you're learnin' the game

 

When she says that you're the only one she'll ever love

Then you find that you are not the one she's thinking of

Feeling so sad and you're all alone and blue

That's when you're learnin' the game

 

When she says that you're the only one she'll ever love

Then you find that you are not the one she's thinking of

Feeling so sad and you're all alone and blue

That's when you're learnin' the game

 

That's when you're learnin' the game

 

 

 

 

 

 

LISTEN TO ME

(Charles Hardin and Norman Petty)

 

 

 

Listen to me and hold me tight

And you will see our love so right

Hold me darling, listen closely to me

 

Your eyes will see what love can do

Reveal to me your love so true

Listen to me, listen closely to me

 

I've told the stars you're my only love

I want to love you to tenderly

Those same bright stars in heaven above

Know now how sweet sweethearts can be

 

Listen to me, hear what I say

Our hearts can be nearer each day

Hold me darling, listen closely to me

 

(Spoken)

 

Listen to me

Listen, listen

Listen to me

 

I've told the stars you're my only love

I want to love you to tenderly

Those same bright stars in heaven above

Know now how sweet sweethearts can be

 

Listen to me, hear what I say

Our hearts can be nearer each day

Hold me darling, listen closely to me

 

 

 

 

 

 

LITTLE BABY

(Buddy Holly - Norman Petty - C. W. Kendall jr.)

 

 

Little baby, baby me

Little baby, baby me

In my heart you are the one

Look around and have your fun

Oh woh woh-woh

You be my little baby

And baby me

 

Little baby can you see

What your love has going to be ?

With a bunch of love for you

Woh woh woh-woh

LONESOME TEARS

(Buddy Holly)

 

 

Lonesome tears sad and blue

I shed lonesome tears for you

Guess you know I know why

I cried when you said goodbye

 

When you left and you said "I'm gone"

Lonesome tears fell all night long

Yes, you know I know I cried

When you said goodbye

 

You left me here all alone

Hear me callin', won't you back home

Love me like you did before

Now need I tell you more ?

 

Lonesome tears sad and blue

I shed lonesome tears for you

Guess you know I know I cried

When you said goodbye

 

You left me here all alone

Hear me callin', won't you back home

Love me like you did before

Now need I tell you more ?

 

Lonesome tears sad and blue

I shed lonesome tears for you

Guess you know I know I cried

When you said goodbye

 

 

 

 

LOOK AT ME

(Norman Petty - Buddy Holly - Jerry Allison)

 

 

 

 

Hey, hey, look at me and tell me

What's gonna happen to you

When you've broken too many people's hearts

And can't find anyone new

 

Say, say, look at me an' tell me

'Bout that twinkle in your eye

Is the twinkle in your eye meant for me

Or meant for some other guy

 

Look at me from now on

Know the love we share

Look at me from now on

Let me know you care-a-are

 

Hey, hey, look at me an' tell me

What's gonna happen to you

When you've spoken sweet words of love to me

And I want to marry you

 

Look at me from now on

Know the love we share

Look at me from now on

Let me know you care-a-are

 

Hey, hey, look at me an' tell me

What's gonna happen to you

When you've spoken sweet words of love to me

And I want to marry you

 

 

 

 

 

LOVE IS STRANGE

(Ethel Smith - Mickey Baker)

 

 

 

Love (mm-mm-mm), love is strange (mm-mm-mm)

A lot of people (mm-mm-mm) take it for a game

Once you get it (mm-mm-mm) you're in an awful fix (mm-mm-mm)

After you've had it (mm-mm-mm) you'll never wanna quit

 

Many people (mm-mm-mm), don't understand (no, no)

They think loving (yay-ee-ay) is money in the hand

Your sweet lovin' (mm-mm-mm) is better than a kiss (yay-ee-ay)

When you leave me (mm-mm-mm) sweet kisses I miss

 

Love (mm-mm-mm), love is strange (mm-mm-mm)

A lot of people (mm-mm-mm) take it for a game

Once you get it (mm-mm-mm) you're in an awful fix (mm-mm-mm)

After you've had it (mm-mm-mm) you'll never wanna quit

 

Many people (mm-mm-mm), don't understand (no, no)

They think loving (yay-ee-ay) is money in the hand

Your sweet lovin' (mm-mm-mm) is better than a kiss (yay-ee-ay)

When you leave me (mm-mm-mm) sweet kisses I miss

 

 

  

 

 

 

LOVE ME 

(Sue Parish - Buddy Holly)

 

 

 

Well, love me, love me, love me

Oh baby love me

Well, if you love me honey

Will you let me know

If you really love me

Then never let me go

 

Oh, love me, love me, love me

Well, I'm hoping you do

Oh baby, love me, love me, love me

The way that I love you

LOVE'S MADE A FOOL OF YOU

(Buddy Holly - Bob Montgomery)

 

 

 

Love can make a fool of you

You do anything it wants you to

Love can make you feel so good

When it goes like you think it should

Or it can make you cry at night

When your baby don't treat you right

When you're feelin' sad and blue

You know love's a-made a fool of you

 

You know love makes fools of men

But you don't care, you're gonna try it again

Time goes by, it's a-passing fast

You think true love a-has come at last

But by and by you're gonna find

Crazy love a-has a-made you blind

When you're feelin' sad and blue

You know love's a-made a fool of you

 

Love can make you feel so good

When it goes like you think it should

Or it can make you cry at night

When your baby don't treat you right

When you're feelin' sad and blue

You know love's a-made a fool of you
