and that became a number-1 hit record, with sales of a million plus.

INTRO: |A    |./.    |

VERSE 1:

A                   |D
Laura and Tommy were lovers.
  |A                 |D         |
He wanted to give her everything.
C#m     |D            |E              |E7          |
Flowers, presents, and most of all   a wedding ring.

VERSE 2:

A                    |D            |
  He saw a sign for a stockcar race.
A                  |D
  A thousand dollar prize it read.
  |C#m               |D
He couldn't get Laura on the phone,
  |E            |E7         |
so to her mother Tommy said.

CHORUS:

A              |./.      |./.              |Bm      |
  Tell Laura, I love her,     tell Laura, I need her.
./.              |A                  |Bm             |
    Tell Laura, I may be late, I have something to do,
E7            |A     |./.    |
   that cannot wait.

VERSE 3:

A                        |D            |
  He drove his car to the racing ground.
A                    |D           |
  He was the youngest driver there.
   |C#m                 |D
The crowd roared as they started the race.
         |E                    |E7         |
Round the track they drove at a deadly pace.

VERSE 4:

A                  |D                |
  No one knows what happened that day.
A                 |D
  How his car over-turned in flames.
   |C#m                        |D
But as they pulled him from the twisted wreck,
        |E                 |E7           |
with his dying breath, they heard him say.

CHORUS:

A              |./.      |./.              |Bm      |
  Tell Laura, I love her,     tell Laura, I need her.
./.           |A             |Bm          |
    Tell Laura not to cry, my love for her
E7           |A     |./.   |
   will never die.

VERSE 5:

A                         |D          |
  Now in the chapel, where Laura prays,
A                   |D
  for her Tommy, who passed away.
      |C#m               |D
It was just for Laura, he lived and died.
 |E                         |E7          |
A-lone in the chapel she can hear him cry.

CHORUS:

A              |./.     |./.              |Bm      |
  Tell Laura, I love her,    tell Laura, I need her.
./.           |A             |Bm          |
    Tell Laura not to cry, my love for her
E7           |A     |./.   |
   will never die.

A              |./.     |./.             |./.     |
  Tell Laura, I love her,   tell Laura, I need her.
