When I was young and wide-eyed I moved from the 'burbs on the other side of the continent to Sydney where soon I met the second great love of my life and for a while life was very sweet. And glamorous. She was from a showbiz family - her parents knew the Beatles - and their large house overlooking the harbour often hosted global A-listers (a number of whom are now, interestingly, behind bars). We dressed up most nights for dinner or an opening. Then I came home one evening and found her in bed with a bloke she met at a Penthouse magazine event. We tried to get back together afterwards but I couldn't recover from the hurt and she couldn't recover my trust.

I Can't Say I Won't Shed No Tears

I leaned heavily on _CNTRYSH.STY for this one.

Lyrics:
So you come around and tell me this time you wanna stay
And whatshisname I found you with he done left town today
Well see you in another life I’m getting outta here
Tho I can’t say that I won’t shed no tears

When I see you in the street I wonder where you’ll go
Could be in the gutter, or the queen of a Broadway show
You can count on this I won’t be seeing you through the years
Tho I can’t say that I won’t shed no tears

It’s true enough I loved you once and maybe I still do
And the things we did together still catch me unawares
But I can’t stand your cheating heart, so believe me we are through
Tho I can’t say that I won’t shed no tears

All your fancy family friends and all their fancy style
And all your moneyed showbiz types and their glittering careers
Well I do admit for a little while they had me all beguiled
So I can’t say that I won’t shed no tears

Your friends all tried to warn me that you’re one hard act to please
But stick around a while they said ‘cause wonders never cease
Well I stuck around and now I’m off to drown myself in beer
And I can’t say that I won’t shed no tears

A nice country flavored tune ... Too bad you had to really experience the tears. You can tell a good story in song. Enjoyed this one.

This one has a nice loping country feel to it. The single string slow bend solo works well. I enjoyed my listen and all I can say about the girl is B*tch! Tom

Nicely chosen back tracks,

one hell of a back-story

nice song form, sounds good

I could hear Mick Jagger singing this

remember "Far Away Eyes" "Dead Flowers"

Of course meant as a compliment, I love these Stones songs

enjoyed

Kenny

Matcham, what a bittersweet melody.

Regardless of your unfortunate situation, the song was nice to listen to. You did put together a great set of lyrics.

Thanks guys. And for the sympathy. It was a long time ago and tho she doesn't come across well in the story we did eventually mix in the same circles again and even become friends for a while. If she ever hears this song - and she might - I'd expect some banter and a dose of mea culpa.

Dead Flowers. Now there's a song.

Well done Matchum. Heartbreaking life stories being translated to music and song. Very cool tune.... Backtrack really suited the lyric. And I agree with Tom so very cool stuff going on with the guitar....

I agree with Tom! I always enjoy this type of attitude in a song-written a few like that myself. Nicely done!! Take care. Greg

Cool write! Like Kenny said we could readily feel Mick singing this...really has that country stones groove -- like when they were hanging with Gram Parsons.

Nice!!!
