Bo Diddley
Buddy Holly Lyrics

Bo Diddley buy baby a diamond ring
If that diamond ring don't shine
He gonna take it to a private eye
If that private eye can't see

He better not take that ring from me
Won't you come to my house back at home
Take a-my baby on away from home
Love a-that photo, where ya been
Up to your house and gone again
Bo Diddley caught a fat cat

To make a-pretty baby a Sunday hat
Bo Diddley caught him a nanny goat
To make a pretty baby a Sunday coat
Bo Diddley, Bo Diddley have you heard
My pretty baby says she wants a bird

It was beyond anything I could have ever imagined.

I saw Buddy perform this song live on a Lubbock Television station in 1956. It is still the greatest concert I ever saw.

You Got Lucky😎

@Kristian Stanley I wasn't there when buddy Holley was alive Tom Vaughn could answer your questions. That's his era of music but buddy lives in all of us

Kristian Stanley

i wish we were friends, I have so many questions for you

mike gleco

Tom. I lost the information you sent me on Buddy Holey. Could you please resubmit any information you can? Contact me at

Tom Vaughn

@mike gleco I have been looking for that for years. The station was either KLBK or KCBD in Lubbock at that time.

Fifty nine years later and his music still matters. What a legacy he left us.
