Roy Orbison/Joe Melson, 1961

I was all right for a while
I could smile for a while
Then I saw you last night
You held my hand so tight
When you stopped to say hello
You wished me well
You couldn’t tell that
I’ve been crying over you,
crying over you
And you said “So long”
Left me standing all alone, alone and crying, crying, crying, crying
It’s hard to understand
But the touch of your hand can start me crying

I thought that I was over you But it’s true, so true
I love you even more than I did before
But darling, what can I do?
For you don’t love me
And I’ll always be crying over you, crying over you

Yes now you’re gone
And from this moment on, I’ll be crying, crying, crying, crying
Yeah, crying, crying over you
