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)

[Chorus]
        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

[Verse 1]
         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                    
    B
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

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

[Chorus]
        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

[Verse 2]
          E                        C#m            A
Well when I woke up, the rain was pouring down, there were people standing
B
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
 B
little while",
   E                          C#m                A
         B
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
       B
But now she's gone, even though I hold her tight, I lost my love, my life,
      E
that night.

[Chorus]
        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

[Outro]
 E     C#m     A      B
Eee....eee....eee....eee....
 E     C#m     A      B
Eee....eee....eee....eee....
[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!
--Zeke

I don't think there is such a thing as a "correct key". This version may be in the same key as the J. Frank Wilson release, but that doesn't make it "correct". The key of G is the key in which Pearl Jam did their version. That doesn't make it "wrong". It's just the key they played it in. Any song can be played in any key. The key you actually end up using can depend on many factors - vocal range, mood, instrumentation etc. No key is more "correct" than another.
