Tuff question..........Last Kiss Era
Looking to find the song that has to do with "a boyfriend going to his girlfriends grave" I think, sees her presence there or finds something that belonged to her. I know that is not a lot of info to go on!

It came out about the time as "Last Kiss" and "Tell Laura I love Her" I believe and is of that same type of melancholy lyric.

Tuff question..........Last Kiss Era
Dickey Lee - Laurie (Strange Things Happen){1965}

Click to hear

Last night at the dance I met Laurie,
So lovely and warm, an angel of a girl.
Last night I fell in love with Laurie -
Strange things happen in this world.

As I walked her home,
She said it was her birthday.
I pulled her close and said
"Will I see you anymore?"
Then suddenly she asked for my sweater
And said that she was very, very cold.

I kissed her goodnight
At her door and started home,
Then thought about my sweater
And went right back instead.
I knocked at her door and a man appeared.
I told why I'd come, then he said:

"You're wrong, son.
You weren't with my daughter.
How can you be so cruel
To come to me this way?
My Laurie left this world on her birthday -
She died a year ago today."

A strange force drew me to the graveyard.
I stood in the dark,
I saw the shadows wave,
And then I looked and saw my sweater
Lyin' there upon her grave.

Strange things happen in this world.
