Buddy Holly: * 7 Sep 1936 † 3 Feb 1959
A long, long time ago,
I can still remember how that music used to make me smile.
And I knew if I had my chance
that I could make those people dance,
and maybe they'd be happy for a while.
But February made me shiver
with every paper I'd deliver:
bad news on the doorstep;
I couldn't take one more step.
I can't remember if I cried
when I read about his widowed bride.
Something touched me deep inside,
the day the music died.
