His Latest Flame
Del Shannon Lyrics


A very old friend came by today
'Cause he was telling everyone in town
About the love that he just found
And Marie's the name of his latest flame
He talked and talked and I heard him say
That she had the longest blackest hair
The prettiest green eyes anywhere
And Marie's the name of his latest flame
Though I smiled the tears inside were a-burning
I wished him luck and then he said goodbye
He was gone but still his words kept returning
What else was there for me to do but cry
Would you believe that yesterday
This girl was in my arms and swore to me
She'd be mine eternally
And Marie's the name of his latest flame
Though I smiled the tears inside were a-burning
I wished him luck and then he said goodbye
He was gone but still his words kept returning
What else was there for me to do but cry
Would you believe that yesterday
This girl was in my arms and swore to me
She'd be mine eternally
And Marie's the name of his latest flame
Yeah, Marie's the name of his latest flame
Oh, Marie's the name of his latest flame

Pretty good. If Elvis hadn't made a masterpiece out of this, I think Del's recording would be considered an underground cult hit.

Rick Hickman

This is the original version. It shows how different producers bring different ideas to the table.

TM Lewis

Rest in peace Del.

I LIKE DEL SHANNON BUT ELVIS;S VERSION IS THE BEST POP SINGLE OF THE PRE BEATLES SIXTIES

Richard Anderson

I love the keyboard backing in the chorus and at the end. It was Del Shonnon’s trademark on his biggest hits.
