Why Should I Cry? (Johnny Drake) video

You broke my heart little darlin',
You broke it right in two;
You learned to love another,
While I loved none other but you.

So, why should I cry over someone,
Now that I'm growing old?
My hair will soon turn to silver,
And the book of love letters I'll fold.

I bought the clothes that you wanted,
You drank the best of wine;
I bought you precious diamonds,
'Cause you promised that you would be mine.

So, why should I cry over someone,
Now that I'm growing old?
My hair will soon turn to silver,
And the book of love letters I'll fold.

Someday you'll come back to me, dear,
Then it will be too late;
My love will turn against you,
Or turn from a true love to hate.

So, why should I cry over someone,
Now that I'm growing old?
My hair will soon turn to silver,
And the book of love letters I'll fold.
