Words Of Love Lyrics 

Hold me close and - tell me how you feel
Tell me love is real --- Mm, mm, mm

Words of love you - whisper soft and true
Darling I love you --- Mm, mm, mm

Let me hear you say - The words I want to hear
Darling when you're near -- Mm, mm, mm

Words of love you - whisper soft and true
Darling I love you --- Mm, mm, mm
Mm, mm, mm -- mm, mm, mm … mm, mm, mmmmm

Like many songs from the 1950's you'll discover they are quite short compared to todays recordings in 2021. That had to do with radio in the those days not wanting songs longer than 3 min. So many of these old numbers from not just Buddy Holly, but all artists in this decade, were often 2 verses with a break and a repeat of the chorus. Of all fo the Buddy holly songs in this section, this one is probably the shortest.

But it's still worth learning in my opinion, and I hope this Words Of Love chords and lyrics page did provide some value to you.
