Tell Laura I Love Her

Song: Tell Laura I Love Her
Artist:Ray Peterson

Laura and Tommy were lovers
He wanted to give her everything
Flowers, presents
But 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 grounds
He was the youngest driver there
The crowed roared as they started the race
Around the track they drove at a deadly pace

No one knows what happened that day
Or 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 poor Tommy, who passed away
It was just for Laura 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

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

I heard this song on our local radio station this morning while I was driving my kids to school. It was such a sweet and sad song. Tommy and Laura were lovers. They loved each other so much. In order to buy the wedding ring for Laura, Tommy drove his car to the racing grounds. Things unexpected happened, he died. "With his dying speech, they heard him say: tell Laura I love her." After I heard this, my tears cannot help falling down...

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Ray T. Peterson (April 23, 1935 – January 25, 2005) was an American pop music singer.

Ray Peterson was born in Denton, Texas on April 23, 1935. As a boy he had to overcome polio. Blessed with a 4.5-octave singing voice, he embedded his voice to become the Golden Voice of Rock and Roll. Peterson moved to Los Angeles, California where he was signed by RCA Victor Records in 1957. He recorded several songs that were minor hits until "The Wonder of You" made it into the Billboard Top Thirty list (June 15, 1959). The song would later be recorded by Elvis Presley with whom he became close friends.

In 1960, Peterson created his own label, Dunes Records, enlisting the help of producer Phil Spector. Peterson scored a Top 10 hit with "Tell Laura I Love Her", and followed that success with "Corrina, Corrina" and "I Could Have Loved You So Well." His last charting hit was "Missing You" . By the mid-1960s he had become something of a phenomenon on the west coast of the United States.

Ray Peterson died of cancer in 2005 in Smyrna, Tennessee and was interred in the Roselawn Memorial Gardens cemetery in Murfreesboro, Tennessee.
