1963 Lyrics

1963 - Laurika Rauch

Written by:Christopher Torr

 

It's five to twelve and almost time for one more rendezvous

At mockingbird turn left and go down Lemmon Avenue

 

And passing Lomo Alto drive veer right in turtle creek

 

Continue on down cedar springs you'll soon cross Live Oak Street

 

You're coming into Main Street and the crowd begins to roar

 

You smile at many people that you've never seen before

 

You keep on gliding down that street across my memory

Down in Dealey Plaza back in 1963

 

Heard somebody singing soft and low

Heard somebody talking on the radio

Don't know why it happened

Don't know why

 

Only know a little bit of magic died

On the day you took that final ride

 

On that day a little bit of magic died

 

You waved at many people that you'd never seen before

 

You smiled at many people but you don't smile anymore

 

Turn right in Houston left in elm street can't you see the sign

It's almost half past twelve in Dallas Central Standard Time

 

At one o'clock they told you something you already knew

 

Riding right beside him on that autumn rendezvous

 

The doctor saw your hands were cupped your bright pink suit was stained

The doctor said you gave him pieces of your husband's brain

 

Heard somebody singing soft and low

Heard somebody talking on the radio

Don't know why it happened

Don't know why

 

Only know a little bit of magic died

On the day you took that final ride

 

On that day a little bit of magic died

 

You keep on gliding down that street across my memory

 

The twenty second of November 1963

 

You smiled at many people but you don't smile anymore

 

 

A little bit of magic died in 1994
