Great song. Real easy to play, and a great way to get a chick to think you're a real 

I've seen it chorded out here before, but those are in the wrong key. Here's the correct key.

"Last Kiss"
J. Frank Wilson and the Cavaliers
Tuning--Standard (E A D G B E)

INTRO: (tacit; let bass play it out)
        E                C#m        A                    B
Well, where oh where can my baby be? The Lord took her away from me
E                           C#m                A
  She's gone to heaven so I got to be good, so I can see my baby when I
 B          E
leave this world

         E               C#m            A                  B
We were out on a date in my daddy's car, we hadn't driven very far
  E                         C#m          A                    
There in the road, it was straight ahead, the car was stalled, the engine

was dead
E                      C#m                   A                B
I couldn't stop, so I swerved to the right, never forget the sound that

      E               C#m                 A
The cryin' tires, the bustin' glass, the painful scream that I heard last

[CHORUS 2--different vocal tune, same chords]

          E                        C#m            A
Well when I woke up, the rain was pouring down, there were people standing
all around
 E                      C#m           A                   B
Something warm a-runnin' in my eyes, but I found my baby somehow that night
   E                             C#m               A
I raised her head, and when she smiled and said, "Hold me darling just a
little while",
   E                          C#m                A
I held her close, I kissed her our last kiss, I found the love that I knew

that I'd miss
     E                     C#m                       A
But now she's gone, even though I hold her tight, I lost my love, my life,
that night.


 E     C#m     A      B
 E     C#m     A      B
[repeat OUTRO to fade out]

So it's just an E-C#m-A-B progression repeated throughout the song. Keep a good tempo,
make it too slow. It's supposed to be more of a story than a real tearjerker. Don't make
too fast, either. You're not happy she died, either (hopefully). I like to instead of 
out after a bunch of repeats, just end cold on an E after two or three "eee"
But, do as you like.

E|-0-| C#m|-4-|   A|-5-|   B|-4---|
 |-0-|    |-5-|    |-5-|    |-4---------------------------------------|
 |-1-|    |-6-|    |-6-|    |-4---------------------------------------|
 |-2-|    |-6-|    |-7-|    |-4---------------------------------------|
 |-2-|    |-4-|    |-7-|    |-2---------------------------------------|
 |-0-|    |---|    |-5-|    |-----------------------------------------|

Have fun, and rock til the heavens stop you!
