|Mary Lou performed by Young Jessie |
A classic she-done-me-wrong song that melds tough call and response R&B with rockin' doo wop -- don't miss this one. I heard it in the 50s but never had the 45 -- looked for it for years before I found the Ace CD of 21 Young Jessie songs from the Modern label in L.A.
she took my watch and chain
she took my diamond ring
She took the keys to my Cadillac car
jumped in my Kitty and then drove afar"
with Maxwell Davis & Orchestra
Great music for the drive-in!
