Stairway of Love
Marty Robbins Lyrics


(bom-bom-bom-bom-bom-bom-bom-bom)
(bom-bom-bom-bom-bom-bom-bom-bom)
(bom-bom-bom-bom-bom-bom-bom-bom)
(bom-bom-bom-bom-bom-bom-bom-bom)

Come my love with me (bom-bom)
Take me by the hand (bom-bom)
And we soon will be (bom-bom)
In a magic land (bom-bom)
Heaven waits for those who dare to climb (ba-bom)
The stairway of love
(bom-bom-bom-bom-bom-bom-bom-bom)
(bom-bom-bom-bom-bom-bom-bom-bom-bom)

Kiss by kiss we'll go (bom-bom)
Up to paradise (bom-bom)
Darling don't you know (bom-bom)
Heaven only lies (bom-bom)
In the reach of those who dare to climb (ba-bom)
The stairway of love
(bom-bom-bom-bom-bom-bom-bom-bom)
(bom-bom-bom-bom-bom-ba-bom-bom-bom)

Close your eyes, hold me tight
And we'll climb the stairway of love tonight (stairway of love)
(ba-dom-dom-dom-dom)
We could touch the stars (bom-bom)
Way up in the blue (bom-bom)
If you'd only say (bom-bom)
Darling I love you (bom-bom)
Heaven waits for those who dare to climb (ba-bom)
The stairway of love
(bom-bom-bom-bom-bom-bom-bom-bom)
(bom-bom-bom-bom-bom-bom-bom-bom-bom)

Close your eyes, hold me tight
And we'll climb the stairway of love tonight (stairway of love)
(ba-dom-dom-dom-dom)
We could touch the stars (bom-bom)
Way up in the blue (bom-bom)
If you'd only say (bom-bom)
Darling I love you (bom-bom)
Heaven waits for those who dare to climb (ba-bom)
The stairway of love
(bom-bom-bom-bom-bom-bom-bom-bom)
(bom-bom-bom-bom-bom-bom-bom-bom-bom)
The stairway of love
(bom-bom-bom-bom-bom-bom-bom-bom)
(bom-bom-bom-bom-bom-bom-bom-bom-bom)
The stairway of love

Marty Robbins is still my all-time favorite country singer- make that one of my all-time favorite singers, period. He could literally sing the Nashville phone book and make it a hit. This was only a B-side here, but it was far more popular across the pond: no less than four UK artists had chart hits with it in '59. The best and biggest was by the late Michael Holliday, a classic Crosby-style crooner from Liverpool who died, very tragically, in the early '60s. Marty, however, never made a bad record, and he had 30 years of both country and crossover hits before he passed away, too soon, in '82. This, not "Just Married", should have been the crossover hit here. I love his Western, Hawaiian, standards, folk, rockabilly- he did everything and did it well. His voice, with that distinct Western lilt (he was from Arizona), never wavered. Great singer, great songwriter, great guy. RIP. Fun fact: Marty wrote most of his own hits, but this one was from the prolific Tin Pan Alley team of Tepper and Bennett. They wrote many songs for Elvis movies (although they never met the King), "Red Roses For A Blue Lady", "Nuttin' For Christmas", "The Young Ones" (great teen-pop song, #1 hit for Cliff Richard in the UK), and- best of all- "The Naughty Lady Of Shady Lane" (#1 for the Ames Brothers in '54). If you don't know this song, maybe your folks do. Look it up- I guarantee you'll love it, because it's one of the most memorable- and wittiest- hits of the '50s.

So talented even a nascar driver Marty could do it all.

Another good one by Marty. I didn't know it was the flip side of Just Married. Haven't heard this one in a while. Thanks.

At this point in his career - in a determined effort to crack the Pop market (i.e. teenyboppers) - Marty was not sounding very Country. His least Country-sounding song from this period was "The Last Time I Saw My Heart," which I first heard on his album "Marty's Greatest Hits" released in 1959. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XtgT3KslTSs
