Don McLean經過一段小休之後,於80年復出並於同年在香港浸會舉辨了一塲演唱會,這首翻唱的老歌Crying便在當晚首次與香港觀眾見面,感覺一新耳目,其實Don翻唱別人的名曲頗不少,而且滲入了自己的風格,令老曲如添上新的衣裳,很有味道。


Crying

I was all right for a while
I could smile for a while
But when I saw you last night
You held my hand so tight
When you stopped to say hello
And though you wished me well
You couldn't tell
That I'd been crying over you, crying over you
Then you said so long
and left me standing all alone
Alone and crying, crying, crying, crying
It's hard to understand
That 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?
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
I'm crying, crying over you

Crazy Eyes

I could have loved her, but she would change her mind.
I couldn't leave her 'cause when her sweet face shined
I could believe in all her dreams and lies
But I could not leave those crazy eyes.

Her clothes just suit her, there's no one cuter
But watch your step 'cause she's a real straight shooter.
She's got a string of broken hearted guys
That just could not leave those crazy eyes.

Now you hear about all those guys that hang around in bars
Weepin' and moanin' about the gal that got away.
Moanin' the blues to soft guitars.
Wonderin' what time the bars gonna close and
How much longer in their lives they're gonna have to pay.

Cause someone smacks you with a thousand highs
and just attracts you, hardly even tries
That's why I know I won the sweetest prize
When I found love in those crazy eyes.

When someone smacks you with a thousand highs
and just attracts you, hardly even tries
That's why I know I won the sweetest prize
When I found love in those crazy eyes.
When I found love in those crazy, crazy eyes.

SINCE I DONT HAVE YOU

(Written by Don)

I don't have plans and schemes
And I don't have hopes and dreams
I don't have anything
Since I don't have you

And I don't have heart's desires
And I don't have happy hours
I don't have anything
(Anything, anything)
Darling, since I don't have you

I don't have happiness
And I guess I never will again
When you walked out on me
In walked old misery
And it's been here since then

I don't have love to share
I don't have one who cares
I don't have anything
(Anything, anything)
Baby, since I don't have you

And I don't have heart's desires
And I don't have happy hours...

Going for the Gold

I chased a lot of rainbows
Down a lot of roads
Thinking love was something to be bought or sold
But I finally found a treasure
And it's right here in your eyes
Now my golden dreams are of golden rings
Precious love without a price

(Chorus)
I'm going for the gold
For the heart's that's in you
I'm going for the love
That I know will be true
I've had enough
Of those one night stands
I'm going for the gold that's in a wedding band

I followed those illusions
That sparkled in the night
But they were fantasies that disappeared in the night
The midnight fires that burned so bright
Turn to ashes in the dawn
I didn't realize how empty I was inside
Until you came along

Sister Fatima
(Written by Don)

The spirit of Fatima still rules the Earth
She knows your future, she knows what it's worth
Sister Fatima has God-given powers
And on 42nd Street a shop that sells flowers
Is her palace, come and be healed

She knows all your business, your health and your ills
She'll counsel your weddings, divorces and wills
For full restoration five dollars an hour
And with each consultation a free holy flower
And if she likes you, well you can have two

And I came from nowhere like you and your friend
My searching and wandering went on without end
My future was dim, my spirit was crushed
In one sacred moment my questions were hushed

I'm a servant of fate in this garden of truth
A humble recruit of the taffeta booth
Where all things are known but few are revealed
Where sins are forgotten and sickness is healed
For five dollars the flower is free

Jeruselam.(Written by Don)

Jerusalem, Jerusalem all roads lead to you.
Jerusalem, Jerusalem your light is shinning through.
And you will show, show the way, to all who see it shine,
That we can live, in peace, in Jerusalem this time.

The walls will keep you in, the walls will keep you out.
The gates are calling those, who know what it's about.

Jerusalem, Jerusalem all roads lead to you.
Jerusalem, Jerusalem your light is shinning through.
And you will show (you will show), show the way
(show the way), to all who see it shine,
That we can live, in peace, in Jerusalem this time.

Jerusalem is old, Jerusalem is new,
Jerusalem can hold, Moslem, Christian, Jew.

In Jerusalem, Jerusalem all roads lead to you.
Jerusalem, Jerusalem your light is shinning through.
And you will show (you will show), show the way
(show the way), to all who see it shine,
That we can live, in peace, in Jerusalem this time.


The markets and the alleys, the temples and the tombs.
A place for all believers, it has so many rooms.

In Jerusalem, Jerusalem all roads lead to you.
Jerusalem, Jerusalem your light is shinning through.
And you will show (you will show), show the way
(show the way), to all who see it shine,
That we can live, in peace, in Jerusalem this time.
Yes, we can live, in peace, in Jerusalem this time.

Babylon

By the waters,
the waters of Babylon
We lay down and wept,
and wept,
for thee Zion
We remember thee,
remember thee,
remember thee Zion

He's got you


I've got your picture that she gave it to me
And it still looks the same as when you gave it dear
The only thing different the only thing new
I've got these picture He's got you

I've got your letter that she gave it to me
And it still looks the same as when you gave it dear
The only thing different the only thing new
I've got your letter He's got you

I've got your mem'ry or has it got me
I really don't know but I know it won't let me be

I've got your gold ring that proved you'd care
And it still looks the same as when you gave it dear
The only thing different the only thing new
I've got this gold ring and he's got you

I've got your mem'ry or has it got me
I really don't know but I know it won't let me be

I've got your picture that she gave it to me
And it still looks the same as when you gave it dear
The only thing different the only thing new
I've got these picture He's got you
I've got these letter He's got you
I've got this gold ring he's got you.....
