"If mere word can console us for the loss of our beloved Eddie then our love for him was a false love."
A Tribute To Our Beloved Eddie Cochran
Heavenly music filled the air That very tragic day Something seemed to be missing tho
So I heard the creator say: "We need a master guitarist and singer. I know of but one alone. His name is Eddie Cochran. I think I'll call him home."
"I know the folks on earth won't mind For they will understand That the Lord loves perfection. Now we'll have a perfect band."
So as we go through life; now we now That perfection is our goal And we strive for this. So when we are called We'll feel free to go.
