Last Kiss Lyrics

Oh where, oh where, can my baby be?
The Lord took her away from me
She's gone to heaven, so I've 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...

    This songs makes me cry every time i hear it. Imagine how beautiful that kiss would be. Not light, but also not sloppy & sleazy. A kiss full of love, just so beautiful. It would say everything you wanted in that last moment. As i said, beautiful & heartbreaking at the same time

    A teenage couple were going on a date and the weather must have been bad because the singer couldn't stop the car and they got into a bad car accident. After her woke up from the crash he found his girlfriend and she was in her last moments, so they shared their last kiss and she passed. So he's singing of how he hopes to see his baby in heaven.

    I read an article on the internet about how this song was about a group of teens no older than 17 and were out driving and got in a wreck with a flatbed logging truck. Originally the song was released by Wayne Cochran & the C.C. Riders later covered by Frank J. Wilson and the Cavaliers only to be covered yet again by Pearl Jam. This part was copied and pasted from the site I read the article and respects to them.
    ~~~~~~~~"Sixteen-year-old Jeanette Clark was out on a date in Barnesville, Georgia on
    December 22, 1962, the Saturday before Christmas. She was with a group
    of friends in a 1954 Chevrolet. J. L. Hancock, also sixteen, was driving the
    car in heavy traffic and while traveling on Highway 341, collided with a trailer
    truck. Clark, Hancock, and another teenager were killed, and two other teens
    in the car were seriously injured. Cochran dedicated the song to Clark.~~~~~~~~
