True Love Ways
Full orchestra, and Buddy's heartfelt lovesong.
His wife has never been to his grave site. At the very end you'll see the plane, and Buddy's body lying in the foreground. Richie was nearby, and the Big Bopper traveled over 40 corn rows before coming to rest. The Bopper had a revolver in his luggage (he insisted upon being paid in cash and NOBODY was stealing HIS money), and it wasn't found at the crash site, not at first. Turned up a farmer had picked it up, and a round had been fired, leading investigators to think that perhaps the gun discharged, hitting the pilot or damaging the instrumentation. But the farmer finally fessed up that he had shot the thing.
