Endless Sleep:Jody Reynolds.
#5 in 1958. (This song was banned from
many radio stations because of the lyrics.
Allegedly some people felt it would induce teens to commit
suicide. It was, and still is, a great rock anthem.KK)

#1.
Eb
The night was black, rain fallin' down,
                          Bb7      Eb
Looked for my baby, she's nowhere around,

Traced her footsteps down to the shore,
                     Bb7  Eb
‘fraid she's gone forever more.
  Ab
I looked at the sea and it seemed to say,
Eb          Eb   Eb6  Bb7  Eb
I took your baby from you away.
Ab              Ab
I heard a voice cryin' in the deep,
Eb                  Eb6   Bb7     Eb
Come join me, baby, in my endless sleep.

#2.***(Chords are same for other verses.)***

Why did we quarrel, why did we fight?

Why did I leave her alone tonight?

That's why her footsteps ran into the sea,

That's why my baby has gone from me.

I looked at the sea and it seemed to say,

I took your baby from you away.

I heard a voice cryin' in the deep,

Come join me, baby, in my endless sleep.

#3.

Ran in the water, heart full of fear,

There in the breakers I saw her near.

Reached for my darlin', held her to me,

Stole her away from the angry sea.

I looked at the sea and it seemed to say,

You took your baby from me away.

My heart cried out she's mine to keep,

I saved my baby from an endless sleep.

ADD:
Bb7     Eb
Endless sleep(x5)

A fabulous fifties hit from Kraziekhat.
