John Entwistle – Roller Skate Kate lyrics

(J. Entwistle)
Track Music, Inc.

I had a girl, Kate was her name
We used to roller skate together
Now it will never be the same.

Now she's gone, she's gone, she's gone, she's gone
To that great skating rink in the sky.

I remember that day
As if it were yesterday
We were skating side by side
In the fast lane on the motorway

Now she's gone, she's gone, she's gone, she's gone
To that great skating rink in the sky.

She was skating way too fast
She was far too daring
When she crashed into that truck
In a shower of ball bearings.

(In Elvis talk)

They took her to the hospital
But it was far too late
She died in the ambulance and
And that night, that night I
I wear my skates.

Now she's gone, she's gone, she's gone, she's gone
To that great skating rink in the sky.

I had a girl, Kate was her name
We used to roller skate together
Now it will never be the same.

Now she's gone, she's gone, she's gone, she's gone
To that great skating rink in the sky.

She's gone, she's gone, she's gone, she's gone
To that great skating rink in the sky.
