Laurie (Strange Things Happen)

Dickey Lee

(Milton C. Addington, TCF HALL 102, 1965)

Last night at the dance I met Laurie
So lovely and warm, an angel of a girl
Last night I fell in love with Laurie
Strange things happen in this world

As I walked her home, she said it was her birthday
I pulled her close and said, will I see you anymore?
Then suddenly she asked for my sweater
And said that she was very, very cold

I kissed her goodnight at her door and started home
Then thought about my sweater and went right back instead
I knocked at her door and a man appeared
I told why I'd come, then he said

You're wrong son, you weren't with my daughter
How can you be so cruel to come to me this way?
My Laurie left this world on her birthday
She died a year ago today

A strange force drew me to the graveyard
I stood in the dark, I saw the shadows wave
And then I looked and saw my sweater
Lyin' there upon her grave

Strange things happen in this world...
