The Sweetheart Years: The Dilemmas Of Sex And Romance In Fifties Rock

Cynthia Rose, The History of Rock, 1981

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.
