Jack Scott Oldies Music Lyrics

Featuring "What in the World's Come Over You" & "Oh Little One"

Classic Jack Scott song The Way I Walk

The Jack Scott Oldies Music Lyrics is about my two favorite songs by Jack Scott, "What In The World's Come Over You" and "Oh Little One."

Scott was from Ontario, Canada but grew up near Detroit where he developed a love for rockabilly music.

In 1958 Jack moved to the Carlton record label and established himself with the ballad My True Love that made it to #3 on the charts and was his first Gold Record.

Turn the record over, however, and you have the Rockabilly song Leroy all about some wacked-out tough guy, who was content to remain behind bars in the local jail.

I liked the song better and it did end up at number eleven, giving Jack a double-sided national hit.

Jack Scott Oldies Music Lyrics - Top three recordings by Jack were all ballads.

Although I liked all of Jack's music, especially "Goodbye Baby", "Leroy" and "Oh Little One", his top performing songs were all ballads.

In addition to "My True Love" his self penned 1960 "What in The World's Come Over You" became his second gold disc winner.  Here is a live performance of the song at a 2009 concert in New York.


His ballad "Burning Bridges" would be Jack's last song on the top forty charts ending up at #3 in 1960. The flip side, my favorite, was "Oh Little One" (#34).

Jack Scott was inducted into the Michigan Rock and Roll Legends Hall of Fame and in 2011 into the Canadian Songwriters Hall of Fame.

Jack is still singing and touring today and resides in a suburb of Detroit.

Please enjoy another favorite from 1960.


"Oh Little One" - Jack Scott
Written by Jack Scott

Oh, little one (oh, little one)
Oh, little one (oh, little one)
I loved her so...I'll never let her go

She's true to me (oh, little one)
So true to me (oh, little one)
Where will I go...If she should know
I was untrue...Oh, so untrue
Made to share for every little one (oh, little one)
Little one (oh, little one)
Oh, little one (oh, little one)

Oh, oh, oh, little one (oh, little one)
Oh, little one (oh, little one)
My tears I now cry...As she walks by his side
Bye little one...Goodbye little one
Oh, I will die without you
Little one (oh, little one)
Little one (oh, little one)
Oh, little one (oh, little one)
Bye little one (oh, little one)
Oh, little one (oh, little one)



"It's Only Make Believe" - Conway Twitty's #1 song in 1958
