This was one of only three songs that Ritchie Valens was alive to see climb the charts during his short lifetime. He wrote the song about a girl in high school named Donna Ludwig and he recorded the song on Dec 16th 1958. He died a few months later on Feb 3rd 1959 but he did see this one make it to #3. It eventually rose to #2 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.

Donna Lyrics

Oh, Donna, Oh, Donna -- Oh, Donna, Oh, Donna

I had a girl - Donna was her name
Since she left me - I've never been the same
Cause I love my girl - Donna, where can you be? Where can you be?

Now that you're gone - I'm left all alone
All by myself - To wander and roam
Cause I love my girl - Donna, where can you be? Where can you be?

Well, darlin' - now that you're gone - I don't know what I'll do
All the time - and all my love - for you

I had a girl - Donna was her name
Since she left me - I've never been the same
Cause I love my girl - Donna, where can you be? Where can you be?

Oh, Donna, Oh, Donna -- Oh, Donna, Oh, Donna

That's all I have for you here on this Donna chords and lyrics page. I hope the free chords sheet, my partial acoustic demo and the lyrics and Valens video were helpful to helping you learn how to play this song.
