Tell Laura I Love Her chords
Ray Peterson  1960 (Jeff Barry and Ben Raleigh)

Capo III

G

G                    C
Laura and Tommy were lovers
   G                       C
He wanted to give her everything
Em       Am            D              D7
Flowers, presents, and most of all, a wedding ring

G                   C              
He saw a sign for a stock car race
  G               C
A thousand dollar prize it read
Em                    Am
He couldn't get Laura on the phone
   D              D7        (D/D/D/D7)
So to her mother, Tommy said

G         
Tell Laura I love her
             Am
Tell Laura I need her
             G
Tell Laura I may be late
     Am              D            G
I've something to do, that cannot wait

   G                    C
He drove his car to the racing grounds
   G                C
He was the youngest driver there
    Em                    Am
The crowed roared as they started the race
           D                     D7         (D/D/D/D7)
Around the track they drove at a deadly pace

G                 C
No one knows what happened that day
   G               C
Or how his car overturned in flames
    Em                          Am
But as they pulled him from the twisted wreck
         D                  D7         (D/D/D/D7)
With his dying breath, they heard him say

G         
Tell Laura I love her
             Am
Tell Laura I need her
           G
Tell Laura not to cry
   Am           D           G
My love for her  will never die

    G                   C
Now in the chapel where Laura prays 
    G                   C
For her poor Tommy, who passed away
Em                       Am
It was just for Laura he lived and died
 D                          D7          (D/D/D/D7)
Alone in the chapel she can hear him cry

G         
Tell Laura I love her
             Am
Tell Laura I need her
           G
Tell Laura not to cry
   Am           D           G
My love for her  will never die

G         
Tell Laura I love her
G         
Tell Laura I love her .. .
