What a great song !! Etta James : All I Could Do Is Cry

 

For anyone out there with a old soul going through life... we hope that etta James makes your day like she does to us . 


Jamesetta Hawkins (January 25, 1938 – January 20, 2012), known professionally as Etta James, was an American singer who performed in various genres, including gospel, blues, jazz, R&B, rock and roll, and soul. Starting her career in 1954, she gained fame with hits such as "The Wallflower", "At Last", "Tell Mama", "Something's Got a Hold on Me", and "I'd Rather Go Blind". She faced a number of personal problems, including heroin addiction, severe physical abuse, and incarceration, before making a musical comeback in the late 1980s with the album Seven Year Itch.

For anyone out there with an old soul going through life... I hope that Etta James makes your day like she does to us.


I heard church bells ringing
I heard a choir singing
I saw my love walk down the aisle
On her finger he placed a ring
Oh, oh
I saw them holding hands
She was standing there with my man
I heard them promise 'til death do us apart
Each word was a pain in my heart
All I could do
All I could do was cry
All I could do was cry
I was losing the man that I love
And all I could do was cry
And now, the wedding is over
The rice, rice has been thrown over their heads
For them life has just begun
But mine is ending
Oh
All I could do
All I could do was cry
All I could do was cry
I was losing the man that I love
And all I could do was cry
