Stood Up
Rick Nelson Lyrics


Well, I've been waitin' ever since eight
I guess my baby's got another date
Stood up, brokenhearted again
I'll bet she's out havin' a ball
Not even thinkin' of me at all
Stood up, brokenhearted again
Well, I know just what I ought to do
I ought to find me somebody new
But baby I couldn't forget about you
Stood up, brokenhearted again

Why must I always be the one
left behind never havin' any fun
Stood up, brokenhearted again
But I guess I'll go on bein' a fool
Sittin' a round just waitin' for you
Stood up, brokenhearted again
Well, I know just what I ought to do
I ought to find me somebody new
But baby I couldn't forget about you
Stood up, brokenhearted again

Well, I've been waitin' ever since eight 
Guess my baby's got another date 
Stood up, broken-hearted, again

I'll bet she's out havin' a ball 
Not even thinkin' of me at all 
Stood up, broken-hearted, again

 Well, I know just what I oughta do 
 I oughta find somebody new 
 But, baby, I couldn't forget about you 
 Stood up, broken-hearted, again...........

Why must I always be the one 
Left behind never havin' any fun? 
Stood up, broken-hearted, again

But I guess I'll go on bein' a fool 
Sittin' around just waitin' for you 
Stood up, broken-hearted, again

 Well, I know just what I oughta do 
 I oughta find somebody new 
 But, baby, I couldn't forget about you 
 Stood up, broken-hearted, again

Stood up, broken-hearted, again 
Stood up, broken-hearted, again..!..

Don't be fooled by those TV-friendly good looks, Ricky Nelson can really sing rock and roll, not just exploit it. Here he performs one of the most pissed off rockabilly records in history, going just as hard as any of those cats on the Sun label. I still think his career is among the bravest in rock and roll history.

Basil Marasco

Correct on all counts.

Ricky Nelson was a cut above the likes of Bobby Vee, Bobby Rydall,
Bobby Vinton, Fabian, etc with this brilliant track.
Backed by James Burton on guitar, he couldn't fail. At the height of
his powers, he was a class act.


He also starred in "Rio Bravo"! Need I say anymore?
