Oh Boy

West-Tilghman-Petty, 1983 (mono), 1992 (stereo).  Recorded: 06-04-64

Johnny Kidd (voc) - Mick Green (lead) - Johnny Spence (bass) - Frank Farley (drums) - Vic Cooper (keyboards)

This cut of the Buddy Holly song has previously been described as a bit tired.  Okay, by 1964 original rock 'n' roll was left behind a bit by some of the newer groups and styles, but this song would have sat snugly with the other songs on the "Lost Album".

 
All my love, all my kissing
You don't know what you've been missing
Oh boy, when you're with me
Oh boy, the world will see that
You were meant for me

All my life, I've been waiting
Tonight there'll be no hesitating
Oh boy, when you're with me
Oh boy, the world will see that
You were meant for me

     Stars appear and shadows fall
     I can hear my heart call
     A little bit of loving makes everything right
     I'm gonna see my baby tonight

All my love, all my kissing
You don't know what you've been missing
Oh boy, when you're with me
Oh boy, the world will see that
You were meant for me

(instrumental break)

     Stars appear and shadows fall
     I can hear my heart call
     A little bit of loving makes everything right
     I'm gonna see my baby tonight

All my love, all my kissing
You don't know what you've been missing
Oh boy, when you're with me
Oh boy, the world will see that
You were meant for me
