Starlight

Starlight

Escrita por Jack Huddle, Norman Petty y Jim Robinson

Interpretada por Jack Huddle (Kapp 207, 1958)

Basada en una popular nana, lo que no resulta extraño si tenemos en cuenta que Jack Huddle presentaba un show infantil en la KDUB-TV de Lubbock, "Starlight" cuenta con la que es, probablemente, una de las más destacadas participaciones de Holly como guitarrista en una grabación ajena. Junto a Jerry Allison (batería) y George Atwood (contrabajo), este tema se convierte en un sólido Rock'n'Roll que, desgraciadamente, no tuvo en su momento la repercusión que, sin duda, merecía. 

Starlight, starbright
First little star that I see tonight
I wished that I may

And I wished that I might have you


Starlight, starbright
The first little star that I see tonight
I wished that I may and I wished

That I might have my first little wish tonight


As I was walking down the street
A pretty little girl I chanced to meet
Her hair was red and her eyes were blue
I said "Baby what would you like to do?"


I said: "Let's go dancin' darlin'"
But she was sad and blue
She said "I can't dance but dear
What else would you like to do?"


I said "My dear let's marry
Let not a moment pass
Let's go and find a preacherman
And make these memories last"

And she said

Starlight, starbright
The first little star that I see tonight
I wished that I may

And I wished that I might have you


Starlight, starbright
First little star that I see tonight
I wished that I may and I wished

That I might Have a first little wish tonight
