  C/                             F/                 C/                              F/                        
Laura and Tommy were lovers     He wanted to give her everything
C/                F/                    G7/                        G7  /           
Flowers,  presents,    but most of all,   a wedding ring

  C/                               F/                   C/                                F/                    
He saw a sign for a stock car race    A thousand dollar prize it read
             C/                      F/                        G7/                   G7 /                  
He couldn't get Laura on the phone    So to her mother,  Tommy said

C/                   C/             C/                      G7/           
Tell Laura I love her       Tell Laura I need her
G7/                 C/                        G7/                     G7/                   C/     
Tell Laura I may be late   I've something to do,     that cannot wait

 C/                                      F/                    C/                                 F/                  
He drove his car to the racing grounds     He was the youngest driver there
C/                                 F/                            G7/                                      G7  /         
The crowed roared as they started the race      Around the track they drove at a deadly pace
C/                                     F/                     C/                                      F        /             
No one knows what happened that day     Or how his car overturned in flames
 C/                                  F/                                     G7/                           G7 /
But as they pulled him from the twisted wreck    With his dying breath, they heard him say

C/                    C/            C/                   G7      /      
Tell Laura I love her    Tell Laura I need her
G7/                    C/                       G7/          G7/               C/            
Tell Laura not to cry      My love for her      will never die

C/                                         F/               C/                                        F/                        
Now in the chapel where Laura prays     For her poor Tommy, who passed away
                      C/                                F/              G7/                                  G7 /                              
It was just for Laura he lived and died    Alone in the chapel  she can hear him cry
