OK, I had *sworn* that I wasn't going to submit this weeper to Andrew's
Ace Archives even as a joke (should I wait for April Fool's Day or
Halloween?) - but no sooner had I acquired a copy on the COLLECTOR'S
ESSENTIALS: THE '60S comp than it was mentioned in Rev. Billy C. Wirtz's
'Backside' column ('During the early Sixties Dickie Lee was the king of
the splatter platter') in the 3/97 issue of _Musician_ magazine.  (Fer
chrissakes, the lyrics are even *quoted in full* in Brunvand's _The Mexican
Pet_!)  This kozmic konfluence of events convinced me of the error of my

                    "Laurie (Strange Things Happen)"
                         (Milton C. Addington)


	(RMI or Baldwin electric harpsichord; band enters 3rd bar)

	F         Bb        F
	/ / / /   / / / /   / / / /   / / / /

Verse 1:

	 F [2,3: F/C]     Bm7-5        Bb/C    C
	Last night at the dance I met Laurie
	     F         Am      Bb         Bb/C  C
	So lovely and warm, an angel of a girl
	      F               F7        Bb      Bbm
	Last night I fell in love with Laurie
	  F/C           Dm             Gm7   Bb/C  C
	Strange things happen in this world

Verse 2:

	As I walked her home she said it was her birthday
	I pulled her close and said, "will I see you anymore"
	Then suddenly she asked for my sweater
	    F/C       Dm      Gm7    C    F    F7
	And said that she was very, very cold


	    Bb                         F
	I kissed her goodnight at her door and started home
	       Bb                          F                 F7
	Then thought about my sweater and went right back instead
	    Bb                       F     Dm
	I knocked at her door and a man appeared
	G7                           Bb/C   C
	I told why I'd come, then he said

Verse 3:

	You're wrong, son, you weren't with my daughter
	How can you be so cruel to come to me this way
	My Laurie left this world on her birthday
	    F/C     Dm       Gm    Am   D7
	She died a year ago today

[key change to G]

Verse 4:

	     G         C#m7-5           C/D       D
	A strange force drew me to the graveyard
	    G           Bm      C              C/D   D
	I stood in the dark, I saw the shadows wave
	     G                G7       C      Cm/Eb
	And then I looked and saw my sweater
	G/D     C              G    G7
	Lying there upon her grave


	   C            D      C [N.C.]     G
	Strange things happen in this...  world
