Carl Dobkins Jr My Heart is an Open Book

Pop Music

People say things that are hurtful, but those in love should look into each their hearts for the truth.

Carl Dobkins, Jr., from Cincinnati, had a hit with this song in 1959 when it went to  #3 on the Billboard Hot 100 and #11 on the R&B Chart. The song sold more than one million copies and was awarded an RIAA gold record. His backup group was  called The Seniors, which included Keith Ross, Paul Powers, and Harry Clifton. They started singing together in church.  Dobkins was a guest on American Bandstand fourteen times. Currently, he  lives in Cincinnati and performs from time to time.

Here are the lyrics to “My Heart is an Open Book” by Carl Dobkins, Jr.:

Don’t believe all those lies
Darlin’, just believe your eyes

And Look, look
My heart is an open book
I love nobody but you (ah, ah, ah, ah)
Look, look
My heart is an open book
My love is honest and true

Some jealous so and so
Wants us to part
That’s why he’s tellin’ you
That I’ve got a cheatin’ heart

Don’t believe all those lies
Darlin’, just believe your eyes

And look, look
My heart is an open book
I love
Nobody but you

Some jealous so and so
Wants us to part
That’s why he’s tellin’ you
That I’ve got a cheatin’ heart

Don’t believe all those lies
Darlin’, just believe your eyes

And Look, look
My heart is an open book
I love
Nobody but you
Nobody but you
Nobody but you

For More Golden Oldies Music

The Daily Doo Wop Rec Room has daily featured doo wop, rock and roll, R&B, or rockabilly songs that were hits during the first era of rock and roll (that is, from about 1952 until the British invasion in 1964). After a song is featured, it then goes into the juke box. You are welcome to listen to any of the 40+ selections there. Every weekend, there is a Golden Oldies Juke Box Saturday Night, and the juke box is full of song requests from the 1950s and 1960s.

    Forgot that I have the 45. Probably haven’t played it in over 50 years. Writers are Hal David and Lee Pockriss. The “B” side is “My Pledge to You” (Don Wolf & Ben Raleigh).
