More songs by Del Shannon

This file is part of a collection that (moreso than the rest of the site) are not meant to be detailed or accurate transcriptions of the original recordings. They're just some simple chord charts that I made for my own use, some of them my own arrangements.

From the 1961 album Runaway With Del Shannon
Written by Del Shannon & Max Crook
Transcribed by T-rev

Am                   G
   As I walk along I wonder
   What went wrong with our love
   A love that was so strong
   And as I still walk on
     G                                F
   I think of the things we've done together
   While our hearts were young

      I'm a-walking in the rain
      Tears are falling and I feel the pain
      Wishing you were here by me
      To end this misery

                A                     F#m
        I wonder, I wo, wo, wo, wo, wonder
           A                        F#m
        Why, why, why, why, why, why she ran away
                 D                    E
        And I wonder where she will stay
        My little runaway
                D                  A  E7
        Run, run, run, run, runaway
