Dickey Lee — Tell Laura I Love Her lyrics

Tommy and Laura were lovers
He wanted to give here everything:
Flowers, presents. and most of all a wedding ring.

He saw a sign for a stock car race
A thousand dollar prize it read.
He couldn't get Laura on the phone
So to her mother Tommy said,
"Tell Laura I love her;
"Tell Laura I need her;
"Tell Laura I may be late;
"I've something to do that cannot wait."

He drove his car to the racing ground;
He was the youngest driver there.
The crowd roared as they started to race;
Around the track they drove at a deadly pace.
No one knows what happened that day;
How his car overturned in flames;
But as they pulled him from the twisted wreck
With his dying breath they heard him say,
"Tell Laura I love her;
"Tell Laura I need her.
"Tell Laura not to cry;
"My love for her will never die."

Now in the chapel where Laura prays
For her Tommy who passed away.
It was just for Laura that he lived and died;
Alone in the chapel she can hear him cry,
"Tell Laura I love her;
"Tell Laura I need her.
"Tell Laura not to cry:
"My love for her will never die."

[Outro] "Tell Laura I love her"
"Tell Laura I love her"
