My Heart’s On Fire, For ELVIRA

Here’s a fun ditty that takes me back to childhood memories of the television show, “Hee Haw”. I believe this was a hit song by the Oakridge Boys, whose specialty was 5-part harmony. (Sounds awesome in a group.)

ELVIRA!!

Words and music by Dallas Frazier, © 1965 by ATV Music, Nashville, TN.

(First note = Open E string)

[C] El- vira, El-vira, my heart’s on [G7] fire for El-[C]vira!

[C] Eyes that look like heaven. Lips like cherry wine.

And I’m gonna give her all the love I [G7] can!

[C] She’s gonna jump and holler, ‘cause I [F7] saved my last two dollar,
