Brian Setzer Orchestra – '59 lyrics

Well I was born back in '59
I didn't come late, I was right on time.
We had a '59 ford, that never ran quite right.
We'd catch a drive in movie, every saturday night.
Well times were hard for the working man
Daddy tried to understand.

Everything I love is from '59
My first guitar and that girl of mine.
Everything I want is from '59
I guess I'm behind the times
'cause everything I love's from '59.

Well the prince said hey Grace Kelly
Would you be my wife?
And Bobby Darin sang mack the knife
They took Eddie Cochran what could we do?
Once he was gone we knew that rock and roll was through.
We had technicolor at the scene of the crime
Coupe Devilles rolling off of the line.

Everything I love is from '59
My first guitar and that girl of mine.
Everything I want is from '59
I guess I'm behind the times
'cause everything I love's from '59.

Everything I love
Everything I love
Everything I love
Everything.

Wonder where as time rolls on
All that style from 1959 has gone.
But I've got memories in the back of my mind.
What it was like to be alive in '59.
We had technicolor at the scene of the crime,
Coupe Devilles rolling off of the line.

Everything I love is from '59
My first guitar and that girl of mine.
Everything I want is from '59
I guess I'm behind the times.
Everything I love is from '59
My first guitar and that girl of mine.
'cause everything I love,
Everything I love,
Everything I love's from '59.

'59. Song by Brian Setzer. Submited by Steve Huggett.
