Story

Most of the Fall of 1982 I was writing as much as I could for what I hoped would be my 2nd solo record to follow-up “Marooned”.  This demo recording of Don’t Go Cryin’ was aimed at that project.  Once again recorded in my basement studio with Jon R. on electric guitars, Frank Westbrook on keyboards, Don Shipps on bass, and I believe Lloyd Hicks on drums.  With “Marooned” being released earlier in the year, my record company gave me a very special Christmas present at the end of the year, they dropped me.   

Lyrics

Tonight he called and told you he was through

It took you by surprise; he really dropped a bomb on you

And I understand how you may feel

You got a broken heart; it takes a little time to heal

 

     Don’t go cryin’ for a love you lost

     Cause all you’re left with is this loneliness

     Don’t go cryin’, burn the bridge you cross

     Cause tomorrow I’ll be call, when you’re feelin’ down

     Yeah tomorrow be callin’. Don’t go cryin’ now

 

He’s your first love; there’ll be more to come

Loves an endless river that you’re floatin’ on

And in time the sun will shine on you

Just to make it start this is what you ought to do

 

     Don’t go cryin’ for a love you lost

     Cause all you’re left with is this loneliness

     Don’t go cryin’, burn the bridge you cross

     Cause tomorrow I’ll be call, when you’re feelin’ down

     Yeah tomorrow be callin’. Don’t go cryin’ now

 

Solo

 

     Don’t go cryin’ for a love you lost

     I know sadness comes with loneliness

     Don’t go cryin’, burn the bridge you cross

     Cause tomorrow I’ll be call, when you’re feelin’ down

     Yeah tomorrow be callin’. Don’t go cryin’ now
