STORY OF JAMES DEAN, THE (Barlow / Leahy) Joe Leahy's Orch. & Chorus (vocal: Jack Carroll) - 1956 (James Dean, James Dean) (James Dean, James Dean, hear the story of James Dean) (He is gone, he is gone, but his memory still lives on) It all began when a strange young man Went forth to seek his goal His chance was slim and the task was grim But there was steel in this man's soul The way was rough and the breaks were tough But still he forged ahead He didn't stop till he reached the top Then fate stepped in and struck him dead (James Dean, James Dean, hear the story of James Dean) (He is gone, he is gone, but his memory still lives on) His hair was fair and his smile was rare His eyes a haunting blue He dressed in jeans like the seventeens And did the things they liked to do The shallow crowd argued long and loud He never would make good It's plain to see he was born to be Like all great men, misunderstood (James Dean, James Dean, hear the story of James Dean) (He is gone, he is gone, but his memory still lives on) In one year's time he had made his climb A giant now was he His race to fame won the world's acclaim Then one more race brought tragedy He's laid to rest in the Middle-West He's played his final role His life was brief, full of tears and grief But one thing's sure, he reached his goal (James Dean, James Dean, hear the story of James Dean) (He is gone, he is gone, but his memory still lives on) (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - March 2017)
