#1 in USA in 1963. Bumped Lesly
Gore's 'It's My Party,' out of top spot.
(Yeah, I know it's different than what's on the lyrics
sites. But this is from the first 1963 recording...
and in my opinion, is still the best translation.)
#1. (Capo up 7th fret for original.)
G Em G EmI'll hold my head up high..looking to the sky,
G Bm Em Am D7so they won't see all the tears that are in my eyes.
G Am C B7No one will know, I'm going through,
Em C Bm Am G C Bm Ammy first lonely night without you.
G Em G EmI know the night will hide, sadness I feel inside,
G Bm Em Am D7no one will know of the smile, and my lips won't tell them.
G Am C B7 Em I'm losing you, and going through, my first
Bm Am G C G G7lonely night without you.
C G G7As I walk alone, the lonely winds seem to say,
Cm G A D D7from this darkness on, all your nights will be this way.
G Em G EmSo, I'll go on alone, pretending you're not gone.
G Bm Em Am D7But I can hide all the moments of love we knew.
G Am C B7 Em C BmMemories of you, as I go through, my first lonely
Am G C G night without you.
A sixties smash from Kraziekhat.
