Three Stars
Eddie Cochran Lyrics


Look up in the sky
Up towards the north
There are three new stars
brightly shining forth
They're shining oh so bright
from heaven above
Gee we're gonna miss you
everybody sends their love

Ritchie, you were just starting
to realize your dream.
Everyone calls me a kid,
you were only 17.
But now almighty God has called you,
oh so far away,
maybe it's to save some boy or girl
who might have gone astray.
But with your star shining
through the dark and lonely night,
to light the path and show the way,
the way that's right.

Gee we're gonna miss you
everybody sends their love.

Buddy, I can still see you,
with that shy grin on your face.
Seems like your hair was always a little messed up,
kinda out of place.
Now not many people actually knew you were,
or know how you felt,
but just one song from you
could make the coldest heart melt.
You're singing for God now,
in his chorus, in the sky.
Buddy Holly, I'll always remember you
with tears in my eyes.

Gee we're gonna miss you, everybody sends their love.
I see a stout man.
The Big Bopper's is your name.
God called you to heaven, maybe for new fortune and fame. Keep wearing that big stetson hat,
and ramble up to the mike,
and don't forget those wonderful words.....
'You know what I like.'

Look up in the sky
Up towards the north
There are three new stars
brightly shining forth
They're shining oh so bright
from heaven above
Gee we're gonna miss you
everybody sends their love

I can only imagine the pain Eddie went through singing this song. Buddy and Ritchie were both close friends of his, and when they died, it really struck him hard. Even in this song, you can hear him breaking into tears, and it's sad to think not long after he recorded this song, he as well came to a tragic end. I guess there are four stars, now.

SO sad that this three stars died SO young😢😓😰

Sharon Sheeley (Eddie’s girlfriend) has also said that Eddie was really shook up after their death, thinking it would come for him too. He could wake up in panic in the middle of the night saying ”Death took Ritchie, Buddy and J.P, and now it’s coming for me too, and there’s nothin’ i can do about it” while he was crying. Such a tragic thing.

@Rege Suchma Buddy's wife never got over his death, she couldn't even go to his funeral in fact to this day she's never been to his grave.

I can also imagine it has well, but you also have to applaud his bravery in singing this i am also hard song for him to record. You can tell it in his voice, somehow he never met the Big Bopper. And I bet when he learned of Buddy Holly and Ritchie Valens' death in the plane crash, it had to hit so hard. And now that are 4 as he died early too, and even younger then Budd Holly.

It's Four stars not three stars because Eddie passed away just a few years later in a car crash. Rest peace boys. Rocking in the heavens above

Very well said.

That is sacred Rocknroll death, better than a cancera. All stars let behind them a nice body ans pure rocknroll soul.
