    (Go, go, go)

    Oh, let me go
    Let me go
    Let me go, lover
    Let me be
    Set me free
    From your spell

    You made me weep
    Cut me deep
    I can't sleep, lover
    I was cursed
    From the first
    Day I fell

    You don't want me
    But you want me
    To go on wanting you
    Now I pray that
    You will say that
    We're through

    Please turn me loose
    What's the use
    Let me go, lover
    Let me go
    Let me go
    Let me go

    You made me weep
    Cut me deep
    I can't sleep, lover
    I was cursed
    From the first
    Day I fell

    You don't want me
    But you want me
    To go on wanting you
    Now I pray that
    You will say that
    We're through

    Please turn me loose
    What's the use
    Let me go, lover
    Let me go
    Let me go
    Let me go

    "The Ballad Of Davy Crockett" by Bill Hayes

    Post  Admin on December 25th 2011, 4:11 am

    "The Ballad Of Davy Crockett"

    by Bill Hayes
    songwriters: Tom Blackburn/George Bruns
    Mar. 26th, 1955 (#1 - 5 weeks)

    (The single version, that went to #1, was a shorter version than the
    longer version posted here.)

    Click 'Spoiler' For Lyrics:
    Spoiler:

    Born on a mountain top in Tennessee
    greenest state in the land of the free
    raised in the woods so he knew ev'ry tree
    kilt him a b'ar when he was only three
    Davy, Davy Crockett, king of the wild frontier!

    In eighteen thirteen the Creeks uprose
    addin' redskin arrows to the country's woes
    Now, Injun fightin' is somethin' he knows,
    so he shoulders his rifle an' off he goes
    Davy, Davy Crockett, the man who don't know fear!

    Off through the woods he's a marchin' along
    makin' up yarns an' a singin' a song
    itchin' fer fightin' an' rightin' a wrong
    he's ringy as a b'ar an' twict as strong
    Davy, Davy Crockett, the buckskin buccaneer!

    Andy Jackson is our gen'ral's name
    his reg'lar soldiers we'll put to shame
    Them redskin varmints us Volunteers'll tame
    'cause we got the guns with the sure-fire aim
    Davy, Davy Crockett, the champion of us all!~

    Headed back to war from the ol' home place
    but Red Stick was leadin' a merry chase
    fightin' an' burnin' at a devil's pace
    south to the swamps on the Florida Trace
    Davy, Davy Crockett, trackin' the redskins down!

    Fought single-handed through the Injun War
    till the Creeks was whipped an' peace was in store
    An' while he was handlin' this risky chore
    made hisself a legend for evermore
    Davy, Davy Crockett, king of the wild frontier!

    He give his word an' he give his hand
    that his Injun friends could keep their land
    An' the rest of his life he took the stand
    that justice was due every redskin band
    Davy, Davy Crockett, holdin' his promise dear!

    Home fer the winter with his family
    happy as squirrels in the ol' gum tree
    bein' the father he wanted to be
    close to his boys as the pod an' the pea
    Davy, Davy Crockett, holdin' his young'uns dear!

    But the ice went out an' the warm winds came
    an' the meltin' snow showed tracks of game
    An' the flowers of Spring filled the woods with flame
    an' all of a sudden life got too tame
    Davy, Davy Crockett, headin' on West again!

    Off through the woods we're ridin' along
    makin' up yarns an' singin' a song
    He's ringy as a b'ar an' twict as strong
    an' knows he's right 'cause he ain' often wrong
    Davy, Davy Crockett, the man who don't know fear!

    Lookin' fer a place where the air smells clean
    where the trees is tall an' the grass is green
    where the fish is fat in an untouched stream
    an' the teemin' woods is a hunter's dream
    Davy, Davy Crockett, lookin' fer Paradise!

    Now he's lost his love an' his grief was gall
    in his heart he wanted to leave it all
    an' lose himself in the forests tall
    but he answered instead his country's call
    Davy, Davy Crockett, beginnin' his campaign!

    Needin' his help they didn't vote blind
    They put in Davy 'cause he was their kind
    sent up to Nashville the best they could find
    a fightin' spirit an' a thinkin' mind
    Davy, Davy Crockett, choice of the whole frontier!

    The votes were counted an' he won hands down
    so they sent him off to Washin'ton town
    with his best dress suit still his buckskins brown
    a livin' legend of growin' renown
    Davy, Davy Crockett, the Canebrake Congressman!

    He went off to Congress an' served a spell
    fixin' up the Govern'ments an' laws as well
    took over Washin'ton so we heered tell
    an' patched up the crack in the Liberty Bell
    Davy, Davy Crockett, seein' his duty clear!

    Him an' his jokes travelled all through the land
    an' his speeches made him friends to beat the band
    His politickin' was their favorite brand
    an' everyone wanted to shake his hand
    Davy, Davy Crockett, helpin' his legend grow!

    He knew when he spoke he sounded the knell
    of his hopes for White House an' fame as well
    But he spoke out strong so hist'ry books tell
    an' patched up the crack in the Liberty Bell
    Davy, Davy Crockett, seein' his duty clear!

    When he come home his politickin' done
    the western march had just begun
    So he packed his gear an' his trusty gun
    an' lit out grinnin' to follow the sun
    Davy, Davy Crockett, leadin' the pioneer!

    He heard of Houston an' Austin so
    to the Texas plains he jest had to go
    Where freedom was fightin' another foe
    an' they needed him at the Alamo
    Davy, Davy Crockett, the man who don't know fear!

    His land is biggest an' his land is best
    from grassy plains to the mountain crest
    He's ahead of us all meetin' the test
    followin' his legend into the West
    Davy, Davy Crockett, king of the wild frontier!
    King of the wild frontier....!

    "Cherry Pink & Apple Blossom White" by Perez "Prez" Prado

    "Cherry Pink & Apple Blossom White"

    by Perez "Prez" Prado
    songwriter: Luis Guglielmi
    April 4th, 1955 (#1 - 10 weeks)

    (Perez Prado's #1 hit was an instrumental although
    there are lyrics to the music.)

    Lyrics:
    Spoiler:

    It's cherry pink and apple blossom white
    The poets say

    The story goes that once a cherry tree
    Beside an apple tree did grow
    And there a boy once met his bride to be
    Long long ago

    The boy looked into her eyes, it was a sight to enthrall
    The breezes joined in their sighs, the blossoms started to fall
    And as they gently caressed, the lovers looked up to find
    The branches of the two trees were intertwined,

    And that is why the poets always write
    If there's a new moon bright above
    It's cherry pink and apple blossom white
    When you're in love

    We're gonna rock around the clock tonight

    Put your glad rags on and join me, hon,

    We're gonna rock around the clock tonight,
    We're gonna rock, rock, rock, 'til broad daylight
    We're gonna rock, gonna rock, around the clock tonight

    When the clock strikes two, three and four,
    If the band slows down we'll yell for more,

    "Learnin' The Blues"

    by Frank Sinatra
    songwriter: Dolores Vicki Silvers
    July 9th, 1955 - (#1 - 2 weeks)

    lyrics:
    Spoiler:

    The tables are empty - the dance floor's deserted
    You play the same love song - it's the tenth time you've heard it
    That's the beginning - just one of the clues
    You've had your first lesson - in learnin' the blues

    The cigarettes you light - one after another
    Won't help you forget her - and the way that you love her
    You're only burnin' - a torch you can't lose
    But you're on the right track - for learnin' the blues

    When you're at home alone, the blues will taunt you constantly
    When you're out in a crowd, the blues will haunt your memory

    The nights when you don't sleep - the whole night you're cryin'
    But you can't forget her - soon you even stop tryin'
    You'll walk that floor - and wear out your shoes
    When you feel your heart break - you're learnin' the blues

    When you're at home alone, the blues will taunt you constantly
    When you're out in a crowd, those blues will haunt your memory

    The nights when you don't sleep - that whole night you're cryin'
    But you can't forget her - soon you even stop tryin'
    You'll walk the floor - and you'll wear out your shoes
    When you feel your heart break - you're learnin' those blues

    "The Yellow Rose Of Texas"

    by Mitch Miller
    songwriter: Don George
    Sep. 3rd, 1955 - (#1 - 6 weeks)

    Lyrics:
    Spoiler:

    There's a yellow rose in Texas that I am gonna see
    Nobody else could miss her, not half as much as me
    She cried so when I left her, it like to broke my heart
    And if I ever find her we never more will part

    She's the sweetest little rosebud that Texas ever knew
    Her eyes are bright as diamonds, they sparkle like the dew
    You may talk about your Clementine and sing of Rosa Lee
    But the Yellow Rose of Texas is the only girl for me

    Where the Rio Grande is flowin', and starry skies are bright
    She walks along the river in the quiets of her night
    I know that she remembers when we parted long ago
    I promised to return and not to leave her so

    She's the sweetest little rosebud that Texas ever knew
    Her eyes are bright as diamonds, they sparkle like the dew
    You may talk about your Clementine and sing of Rosa Lee
    But the Yellow Rose of Texas is the only girl for me

    Oh, now I'm gonna find her, for my heart is full of woe
    We'll do the things together we did so long ago
    We'll play the banjo gaily, she'll love me like before
    And the Yellow Rose of Texas shall be mine forevermore

    She's the sweetest little rosebud that Texas ever knew
    Her eyes are bright as diamonds, they sparkle like the dew
    You may talk about your Clementine and sing of Rosa Lee
    But the Yellow Rose of Texas is the only girl for me

    The golden crown that makes a man a king

    Once on a high and windy hill
    In the morning mist
    Two lovers kissed
    And the world stood still
    Then your fingers touched
    My silent heart and taught it how to sing
    Yes, true love's
    A many splendored thing

    Once on a high and windy hill
    In the morning mist
    Two lovers kissed
    And the world stood still
    Then your fingers touched
    My silent heart and taught it how to sing
    Yes, true love's
    A many splendored thing

    "Autumn Leaves"

    by Roger Williams
    songwriters: Joseph Kosma/Johnny Mercer
    Oct 29th, 1955 - (#1 - 4 weeks)

    (Roger Williams #1 song was an instrumental but there are
    lyrices to this song that many consider one of the classics.)

    Lyrics:
    Spoiler:

    The falling leaves drift by the window
    The autumn leaves of red and gold
    I see your lips, the summer kisses
    The sunburned hand I used to hold

    Since you went away the days grow long
    And soon I'll hear old winter's song
    But I miss you most of all, my darling
    When autumn leaves start to fall

    I see your lips, the summer kisses
    The sunburned hand I used to hold

    Since you went away the days grow long
    And soon I'll hear old winter's song
    But I miss you most of all, my darling
    When autumn leaves start to fall

    "Sixteen Tons"

    by "Tennessee" Ernie Ford
    songwriter: Merle Travis
    Nov. 26th, 1955 - (#1 - 8 weeks)

    Lyrics:
    Spoiler:

    Some people say a man is made outta mud
    A poor man's made outta muscle and blood
    Muscle and blood and skin and bones
    A mind that's a-weak and a back that's strong

    You load sixteen tons, what do you get
    Another day older and deeper in debt
    Saint Peter don't you call me 'cause I can't go
    I owe my soul to the company store

    I was born one mornin' when the sun didn't shine
    I picked up my shovel and I walked to the mine
    I loaded sixteen tons of number nine coal
    And the straw boss said "Well, a-bless my soul"

    You load sixteen tons, what do you get
    Another day older and deeper in debt
    Saint Peter don't you call me 'cause I can't go
    I owe my soul to the company store

    I was born one mornin', it was drizzlin' rain
    Fightin' and trouble are my middle name
    I was raised in the canebrake by an ol' mama lion
    Cain't no-a high-toned woman make me walk the line

    You load sixteen tons, what do you get
    Another day older and deeper in debt
    Saint Peter don't you call me 'cause I can't go
    I owe my soul to the company store

    If you see me comin', better step aside
    A lotta men didn't, a lotta men died
    One fist of iron, the other of steel
    If the right one don't a-get you
    Then the left one will

    You load sixteen tons, what do you get
    Another day older and deeper in debt
    Saint Peter don't you call me 'cause I can't go
    I owe my soul to the company store

    Lyrics:
    Spoiler:

    (Sweet, sweet memories you gave-a me
    you can't beat the memories you gave-a me)

    Take one fresh and tender kiss
    Add one stolen night of bliss
    One girl, one boy
    Some grief, some joy
    Memories are made of this

    Don't forget a small moonbeam
    Fold in lightly with a dream
    Your lips and mine
    Two sips of wine
    Memories are made of this

    Then add the wedding bells
    One house where lovers dwell
    Three little kids for the flavor
    Stir carefully through the days
    See how the flavor stays
    These are the dreams you will savor

    With His blessings from above
    Serve it generously with love
    One man, one wife
    One love through life
    Memories are made of this
    Memories are made of this

    "Rock And Roll Waltz"

    by Kay Starr
    songwriters: Roy Alfred/Shorty Allen
    Feb. 18th, 1956 - (#1 - 6 weeks)

    Lyrics:
    Spoiler:

    One night I was late
    Came home from a date
    Slipped out of my shoes at the door
    Then from the front room
    I heard a jump tune
    I looked in and here's what I saw

    There in the night
    What a wonderful scene
    Mom was dancing with Dad
    To my record machine
    And while they danced
    Only one thing was wrong
    They were trying to waltz
    To a rock and roll song

    A-one, two, and then rock
    A-one, two, and then roll
    They did the rock and roll waltz
    A-rock, two, three
    A-roll, two, three
    It looked so cute to me
    I love the rock and roll waltz

    A-one, two, and then rock
    A-one, two, and then roll
    A-one, two, and then jump
    It's good for your soul
    It's old but it's new
    Let's do the rock and roll waltz

    There in the night
    What a wonderful scene
    Mom was dancing with Dad
    To my record machine
    And while they danced
    Only one thing was wrong
    They were trying to waltz
    To a rock and roll song!

    A-one, two, and then rock
    A-one, two, and then roll
    A-one, two, and then jump
    It's good for your soul
    It's old but it's new
    Let's do the rock and roll waltz
    Let's do the rock and roll waltz...

    "The Great Pretender" by The Platters

    "The Great Pretender"

    by The Platters
    songwriter: Buck Ram
    Feb. 18th, 1956 - (#1 - 2 weeks)

    Lyrics:
    Spoiler:

    Oh-oh, yes I’m the great pretender
    Pretending that I’m doing well
    My need is such I pretend too much
    I’m lonely but no one can tell

    Oh-oh, yes I’m the great pretender
    Adrift in a world of my own
    I’ve played the game but to my real shame
    You’ve left me to grieve all alone

    Too real is this feeling of make-believe
    Too real when I feel what my heart can’t conceal

    Yes, I’m the great pretender
    Just laughin’ and gay like a clown
    I seem to be what I’m not, you see
    I’m wearing my heart like a crown
    Pretending that you’re still around

    Too real is this feeling of make-believe
    Too real when I feel what my heart can’t conceal

    Yes, I’m the great pretender
    Just laughin’ and gay like a clown
    I seem to be what I’m not, you see
    I’m wearing my heart like a crown
    Pretending that you’re still around

    (Still around........)

    "Lisbon Antigua" by Nelson Riddle

    "Lisbon Antigua"

    by Nelson Riddle
    songwriter: Raul Portela
    Feb 25th, 1956 - (#1 - 4 weeks)


    (Nelson Riddle's #1 version of Lisbon Antigua was
    an instumental but there are lyrics to this old Portuguese
    song, "Lisboa Antigua")

    Lyrics:
    Spoiler:

    I gave my heart to you in old Lisbon that night,
    Under the spell of your charms,
    I felt your arms hold me so tight;
    `Twas heaven to find such bliss in each kiss;
    I lost my heart but I found one so true,
    In old Lisbon with you.

    It happened one night in Portugal
    Lisbon was gay in the moonlight,
    The stars were shining above
    When I found you, my love;
    What is this strangeness, this splendor,
    All this myst'ry that makes me surrender?

    "The Poor People Of Paris" by Les Baxter

    Post  Admin on January 16th 2012, 5:11 am

    "The Poor People Of Paris"

    by Les Baxter
    songwriter: Marguerite Monnot
    Mar. 17th, 1956 - (#1 - 6 weeks)


    (Les Baxter's #1 version was an instrumental but there
    are lyrics to this French song, "La Goualante De Pauvre Jean")

    Lyrics:
    Spoiler:

    Just got back from Paris, France
    All they do is sing and dance
    All they've got there is romance
    What a tragedy
    Every boulevard has lovers
    Every lover's in a trance
    The poor people of Paree

    I feel sorry for the French
    Every guy has got a wench
    Every couple's got a bench
    Kissing shamelessly
    Night and day they're making music
    While they're making love in French
    The poor people of Paree

    Milk or water from the sink
    Make a true Parisian shrink
    Wine is all he'll ever drink
    And it worries me
    For with wine as cheap as water
    Oh, it makes one stop and think
    The poor people of Paree

    Sister met a boy named Pierre
    Had the craziest affair
    And the day they parted there
    He cried bitterly
    Pierre was there to bid her farewell
    But he brought his new girl, Claire
    The poor people of Paree

    So don't go to Paris, France
    Not unless you like to dance
    Not unless you want romance
    Like those poor inhabitants of Paree

    Well, since my baby left me
    Well, I found a new place to dwell
    Well, it's down at the end of Lonely Street

    Heartbreak is so lonely, baby

    To cry there in the gloom
    They'll be
    Heartbreak is so lonely, baby
    Heartbreak is so lonely
    Ah, they're so lonely they could die

    Now, the bellhop's tears keep flowin'
    And the desk clerk's dressed in black
    Well, they been so long on lonely street
    They'll never, never look back

    And they'll be
    Heartbreak is so lonely, baby
    Well, they're so lonely
    Well, they're so lonely
    They could die

    Well now, if your baby leaves ya
    You've got a tale to tell
    Well, just take a walk down Lonely Street
    To Heartbreak Hotel

    Where you will be
    Heartbreak is so lonely, baby
    Well, you will be lonely
    You'll be so lonely you could die

    Although it's always crowded
    You still can find some room
    For broken-hearted lovers
    To cry there in their gloom

    Heartbreak is so
    Heartbreak is so lonely, baby
    Well, they're so lonely
    They'll be so lonely they could die

    Lyrics:
    Spoiler:

    On a picnic morning,
    Without a warning,
    I looked at you,
    And somehow I knew . . .

    It must have been Moonglow,
    Way up in the blue,
    It must have been Moonglow,
    That led me straight to you . . .

    I still hear you sayin'
    Dear heart hold me fast,
    And I start in prayin'
    Oh Lord, please let this last,
    We . . . seem to float right through the air,
    Heavenly songs seem to come from everywhere,
    An' now when there's Moonglow,
    Way up in the blue,
    I always remember,
    That Moonglow gave me you . . .

    You and I in the sunshine,
    We strolled the fields and far,
    Heavenly songs seemed to come from everywhere,
    And now when there's Moonglow
    Way up in the blue,
    I always remember,
    That Moonglow gave me you,
    That Moonglow gave me you,
    That Moonglow gave me you . . .

    by Gogi Grant
    songwriters: Stan Lebowsky/Herb Newman
    Jun. 16th, 1956 - (#1 - 8 weeks)

    Lyrics:
    Spoiler:

    The wayward wind is a restless wind
    A restless wind that yearns to wander
    And he was born the next of kin
    The next of kin to the wayward wind

    In a lonely shack by a railroad track
    He spent his younger days
    And I guess the sound of the outward-bound
    Made him a slave to his wand'rin ways

    And the wayward wind is a restless wind
    A restless wind that yearns to wander
    And he was born the next of kin
    The next of kin to the wayward wind

    Oh, I met him there in a border town
    He vowed we'd never part
    Though he tried his best to settle down
    I'm now alone with a broken heart

    And the wayward wind is a restless wind
    A restless wind that yearns to wander
    And he was born the next of kin
    The next of kin to the wayward wind

    The next of kin to the wayward wind

    When I lost my baby (baby)
    I almost lost my mind
    When I lost my baby (baby)

    My head is in a spin since she's left me behind

    I went to see the gypsy
    And had my fortune read
    I went to see the gypsy
    And had my fortune read
    I hung my head in sorrow when she said what she said

    Well, I can tell you, people (people)
    The news was not so good
    Well, I can tell you, people (people)
    The news was not so good
    She said "Your baby's left you"
    "This time she's gone for good" (gone for good)
