Ballad Of Jayne – LA Guns

with No Comments

OMG, I totally loved this song when I was 15 ish. Awesome!! I can't believe I forgot about this ballad by LA Guns, written for Jayne Mansfield, a blonde bombshell who was a popular actress and pin-up girl in the '50s and '60s. She was often compared to Marilyn Monroe, and also died young. Mansfield was killed in a car accident when she was 34. "Now she's breakin' hearts in heaven." Tracii Guns of L.A. Guns was in a band called Hollywood Rose which later became Guns N' Roses (Thus the "Guns" part of the name). After he left they kept the name. Mariska Hargitay (Law & Order) is the daughter of Jayne Mansfield.

LA Guns - Ballad Of Jayne

She was always something special
A diamond shining bright in the rain
Everybody dreams of angels
No one will ever know how much I loved ya so

Now it all seems funny
Kinda like a dream
Things ain`t always what they seem
What a shame
What happened to Jayne

You were always on my mind
A child like summer days in the sun
Slowly wishes turn to sadness
Time don`t heal a broken gun (editorial note: hehehe, cheesy bastards!)
I wish I`d never let u go
Hear me now cause I want ya to know


Now she`s breakin` hearts in heaven
Shining bright in the sky
I still hear her voice in the wind
I still thing of u in the night
Well I guess she`ll never know
How much I need her so
