Lots of great songs to choose from this time. I went with this one, the first I thought of. I hadn’t heard it in years, but for some reason it popped into my mind. It’s a good one, and I like it a lot.

I read that at first he didn’t want to record it, but was encouraged by his wife, who was also his producer. It was his only Top 40 hit, and later he went with another style of songs which were on his gospel label.

From a Wiki article:

Hey There Lonely Girl” is a song recorded in 1963, titled “Hey There Lonely Boy” in its original version by Ruby and the Romantics. It was a hit both for them and for Eddie Holman. It has been recorded by many other artists.

In 1969, R&B singer Eddie Holman recorded and released his own version of the song. It charted in the United States in 1970 and in the United Kingdom in 1974.[3] Holman’s recording of “Hey There Lonely Girl” is most recognizable by its disconsolate, sentimental and heavyhearted lyrics, with his falsetto voice.

“Hey There Lonely Girl”, by Eddie Holman, was released as a single from his 1969 album, “I Love You”. It was written by Leon Carr and Earl Shuman, and is on the ABC label.

)Ooo0Hey there lonely girl
Lonely girl
Let me make your broken heart like new
Hey there lonely girl
Lonely girl
Don’t you know this lonely boy loves you
Ever since he broke your heart
You seem so lost
Each time you pass my way
Oh, how I long to take your hand
And say, don’t cry
I’ll kiss your tears away
Hey lonely girl
My only girl
Let me make your broken heart like new
Hey there lonely girl
Lonely girl
Don’t you know this lonely boy loves you
You think that only his two lips
Can kiss your lips
And make your heart stand still
But once you’re in my arms you’ll see
No one can kiss
Your lips the way I will
The way I will
Hey there lonely girl
Lonely girl
Let me make your broken heart like new
Hey there lonely girl
Lonely girl
Don’t you know this lonely boy loves you
Don’t you know this lonely boy loves you

  1. That’s a great song, I haven’t heard it in years. Thanks for sharing the smiles today! On a complete side note, I’ve been wanting to let you know that your gravatar or your account in WP is defaulting to the admin extension so if people are trying to follow you from comments shared, they aren’t getting directed to your blog. I have to delete this each time in order to get here to comment. /wp-admin/ I hope you’re able to figure out how that happened?!

    • Thanks, Shelley! Glad you enjoyed the song!
      Oh … I had no idea that was happening. I’ve never changed anything, well, I don’t know how to change anything, so something is going on. I’ll try to fix it. Thanks for letting me know! 🙂

      • Yes, I did! You’re welcome. It’s hard to know when a setting has been changed in the background. Sometimes it’s due to an update or something. I hope you’re able to figure it out. 🙂

      • I have no idea, but I see what you were reporting. I had a chat with one of the WP helpers, and they checked everything out and couldn’t find a problem with anything. So I guess I’ll just leave it alone for now. We did install a new computer last week, so maybe that caused something to go haywire. Thanks again! 🙂

  2. Have you listened to Ruby & The Romantics’ version of it? I like Holman’s cover better, but when I ran it as a Battle of the Bands (Ruby vsw. Eddie), people preferred Ruby’s.
