Last Kiss Lyrics

Oh, where oh where can my baby be?
The Lord took her away from me
She's gone to heaven, so I got to be good
So I can see my baby when I leave this world.

We were out on a date in my daddy's car
We hadn't driven very far
There in the road, up straight ahead
A car was stalled, the engine was dead
I couldn't stop, so I swerved to the right
I'll never forget the sound that night
The screamin' tires, the bustin' glass
The painful scream that I heard last.

Oh, where oh where can my baby be?
The Lord took her away from me
She's gone to heaven, so I got to be good
So I can see my baby when I leave this world. When I woke up, the rain was pourin' down
There were people standing all around
Something warm runnin' in my eyes
But somehow I found my baby that night
I lifted her head, she looked at me and said
"Hold me darling just a little while."
I held her close, I kissed her our last kiss
I found the love that I knew I would miss
But now she's gone, even though I hold her tight
I lost my love, my life that night.

Oh, where oh where can my baby be?
The Lord took her away from me
She's gone to heaven, so I got to be good
So I can see my baby when I leave this world.
Oh, oh

Thoughts & Meanings

I agree with VickyD that the most heartbreaking part of the song comes right after this verse, but this paints a picture in my mind that is impossible to shake. An innocent moment - a date with your sweetheart - quickly turns into a nightmare that is very obviously not going to end well. Such a sad song.

This is probably the most heartbreaking part in a song. The description is incredibly vivid. To be in the middle of the road, holding someone's head and realizing that the person is sharing his/her last words and the kiss that will come between the two will be the last one. There is no turning back from that.
