Buddy Holly - That'll Be The Day Lirics

 

Well, that'll be the day, when you say goodbye

Yes, that'll be the day, when you make me cry

You say you're gonna leave, you know it's a lie

'Cause that'll be the day when I die

Well, you give me all your loving and your turtle doving

All your hugs and kisses and your money too

Well, you know you love me baby, until you tell me, maybe

That some day, well I'll be through

Well, that'll be the day, when you say goodbye

Yes, that'll be the day, when you make me cry

You say you're gonna leave, you know it's a lie

'Cause that'll be the day when I die

Well, that'll be the day, when you say goodbye

Yes, that'll be the day, when you make me cry

You say you're gonna leave, you know it's a lie

'Cause that'll be the day when I die

Well, when Cupid shot his dart he shot it at your heart

So if we ever part and I leave you

You sit and hold me and you tell me boldly

That some day, well I'll be blue

Well, that'll be the day, when you say goodbye

Yes, that'll be the day, when you make me cry

You say you're gonna leave, you know it's a lie

'Cause that'll be the day when I die

Well, that'll be the day, woo ho

That'll be the day, woo ho

That'll be the day, woo ho

That'll be the day
