Tell Me How

Tell Me How

Escrita por Charles Hardin, Jerry Allison y Norman Petty

Interpretada por The Crickets (Brunswick BL-54038, 1957)

Aunque no se editó hasta febrero de 1958 (como cara B de “Maybe Baby”), esta fabulosa melodía fue grabada a mediados del año anterior, al igual que “Peggy Sue”, “Not Fade Away”, “Oh, Boy!” o “Everyday”. Con una estructura original, un gran trabajo a la batería de Jerry Allison y unos coros (a cargo de The Picks) que resultan incluso redundantes, “Tell Me How” es uno de los mejores ejemplos de esa visión artística tan claramente adelantada a su tiempo que puede apreciarse en buena parte de la obra de Holly.

Tell me how to keep your love

You know how I need your love

Tell me how you keep the love

Within your heart from me

 

Don't you know that I love you

Let me show why I'm true blue

When I know our love is true

Don't keep your love from me

 

If you would say to me today

The time for love is now

Could I sway your love my way

Then I say tell me how

 

Tell me how to keep your love

You know how I need your love

Tell me how you keep the love

Within your heart from me

 

If you would say to me today

The time for love is now

Could I sway your love my way

Then I say tell me how

 

Tell me how to keep your love

You know how I need your love

Tell me how you keep the love

Within your heart from me

Tell me how you keep the love

Within your heart from me
