"I CRY" [2014]


Leave me at the window 

Blowin’ smoke onto the street 

Thinkin’ deep in summer heat 

About the things that I did see 

In a month in this sweet city 

Like a four-week-long pipedream 

Pass me the wine 

I’m feelin’ whiney, so it seems 


That I must cry 

Oh, I cry 

For tonight I leave Paris 

Et ma blonde cherie behind 

And so I cry 


I leave you at the station 

I lay my letter in your hands 

It says I’ll phone you come round August 

When I’m back from pretty lands 

I’m your dirty old American 

In a ramblin’ rock & roll band 

And now I hit the rails 

And say au revoir to France 


But I must cry 

Oh, I cry 

For tonight I leave Paris 

Et ma blonde cherie behind 

And so I cry 

Oh, I cry 

Now I’m bound for Italy 

With great tears in my blue eyes 


You’re my long-legged lady 

And your tongue is sharp 

I’m gonna miss you so dearly 

When I’m travelin’ so far 

Please hold me till the evenin’ 

When my train is set to part 

It breaks my heart, it breaks my heart
