Lyrics WELL, OH WHERE OH WHERE
CAN MY BABY BE?
THE LORD
TOOK HER AWAY FROM ME.
SHE'S GONE TO HEAVEN
SO I GOT TO BE GOOD,
SO I CAN SEE MY BABY
WHEN I LEAVE THIS WORLD.

WE WERE OUT ON A DATE
IN MY DADDY'S CAR,
WE HADN'T DRIVEN VERY FAR.
THERE IN THE ROAD
STRAIGHT AHEAD
A CAR WAS STALLED,
THE ENGINE WAS DEAD.
I COULDN'T STOP
SO I SWERVED TO THE RIGHT,
I'LL NEVER FORGET
THE SOUND THAT NIGHT.
THE CRYIN' TIRES,
THE BUSTIN' GLASS,
THE PAIN FOLKS SCREAMED
THAT I HEARD LAST.

WELL, OH WHERE OH WHERE
CAN MY BABY BE?
THE LORD
TOOK HER AWAY FROM ME.
SHE'S GONE TO HEAVEN
SO I GOT TO BE GOOD,
SO I CAN SEE MY BABY
WHEN I LEAVE THIS WORLD.

WHEN I WOKE UP
THE RAIN WAS POURING DOWN,
THERE WAS PEOPLE
STANDIN' ALL AROUND.
SOMETHING WARM
WAS RUNNIN' IN MY EYES,
BUT I FOUND MY BABY
SOMEHOW THAT NIGHT.
I RAISED HER HEAD
UNTIL SHE SMILED AND SAID:
HOLD ME DARLING,
FOR A LITTLE WHILE.
I HELD HER CLOSE
AND KISSED HER OUR LAST KISS,
I FOUND HER LOVE
THAT I KNEW I HAD MISSED.
BUT NOW SHE'S GONE
EVEN THOUGH I HOLD HER TIGHT,
I LOST MY LOVE,
MY LIFE THAT NIGHT.

WELL, OH WHERE OH WHERE
CAN MY BABY BE?
THE LORD
TOOK HER AWAY FROM ME.
SHE'S GONE TO HEAVEN
SO I GOT TO BE GOOD,
SO I CAN SEE MY BABY
WHEN I LEAVE THIS WORLD.
