The Dilemmas of Sex and Romance in Fifties Rock

Cynthia Rose, History of Rock, The, 1982

The screen door slams
Mary's dress waves
Like a vision she dances across the porch
As the radio plays
Roy Orbison singin' for the lonely
That's me and I love you only
Don't turn me home again
I just can't face myself alone again.
