Ray Charles Cry Lyrics

Last updated: 01/04/2013 01:32:39 PM

If your sweetheart, sends a letter, of goodbye
It's no secret, you'll feel better, if you cry
When wakened, from a bad dream, don't you sometimes think it's real
Well it's only, false emotion, that you feel

If your heartaches, seems to hang around, too long
And your blues, keep getting blue-er, with each song
Remember, sunshine can be found, behind a cloudy sky
So let your hair down now, and baby go on and cry

(If your heartaches seem to hang around too long)
(And your blues keep getting blue-er with each song)
Well remember, sunshine can be found, behind a cloudy sky
Why don't you let your hair down now, baby go on and cry

I said let your hair down, baby go on and cry.

Lyric Parody | Reviewer: D@KLAC | 1/3/13

A dear friend who is recently deceased had this as his signature song at the nightly piano bar in the Florida Keys. However, he changed the lyrics to "if your sweetheart sends a letter to your wife..." - it was hysterical each time he sang it. Good bye, Shooter; you were a gem!

The original is always better | Reviewer: Anonymous | 1/25/12

Someone made a Dutch translation of this song, which is trying for a comedy effect (and fails). It doesn't need 'improving', the original is so much better. If it ain't broken .....
