Lonesome Tears in My Eyes - Johnny Burnette and The Rock n' Roll Trio/The Roy Kay Trio/The Beatles/Los Fabulocos/Darrel Higham/The Go Getters/Los Primitivos/The Tennessee Trio/The Crown Top King


Lonesome Tears in My Eyes
Baby, baby, baby, blues an' sorrows
And a love for tomorrows seems to suit you just fine
Baby, baby, baby, blues an' sorrows
And a love for tomorrows seems to suit you just fine
Can't forget that you told me so many promises, lies
I'm gonna try to forget these lonesome tears in my eyes

You've broken my heart, gonna do it again
Can't get rid of the spell you got me in
Can't forget that you told me so many promises, lies
I'm gonna try to forget these lonesome tears in my eyes

The Ballad of John and Yoko
Standing in the dock at Southampton, trying to get to Holland or France.
The man in the mack said, "You've got to go back",
"You know, they didn't even give us a chance"

Christ, you know it ain't easy, you know how hard it can be.
The way things are going, they're gonna crucify me.

Finally made the plane into Paris, honeymooning down by the Seine.
Peter Brown called to say, "You can make it okay",
"You can get married in Gibraltar, near Spain".

Christ, you know it ain't easy, you know how hard it can be.
The way things are going, they're gonna crucify me.

Drove from Paris to the Amsterdam Hilton, talking in our beds for a week.
The newspaper said, "Say what you doing in bed?"
I said, "We're only trying to get us some peace".

Christ, you know it ain't easy, you know how hard it can be.
The way things are going, they're gonna crucify me.

Saving up your money for a rainy day, giving all your clothes to charity.
Last night the wife said,"Poor boy, when you're dead",
"You don't take nothing with you but your soul, think"

Made a lightning trip to Vienna, eating chocolate cake in a bag.
The newspaper said, "She's gone to his head, they look just like two gurus in drag"

Christ, you know it ain't easy, you know how hard it can be.
The way things are going, they're gonna crucify me.

Caught the early plane back to London, fifty acorns tied in a sack.
The men from the press said, "We wish you success, it's good to have the both of you back"

Christ, you know it ain't easy, you know how hard it can be.
The way things are going, they're gonna crucify me (2x)
