This man could sing anything and made it sound great. R.I.P David!

Victor Hendrix

Another classic by David Ruffin. He sung this song from his heart

Jeffrrey Conyers

The best vocalist M'town ever had!

Augustus Caesar

Killt it.......

Bianca Bagnolet

où là là c'est magnifique c'est tellement géniale c'est trop trop mimi c'est fantastique j'adore ❤

Robert Velez

I believe that the original version of this song was done by The Monitors in 1968! Their version was not released and I think that Smokey Robinson wrote this composition!

Verse 2's Ending "Since That Day The Tears Would Pour /The Pain Is Mightier Than A Sword"

Very Sensitive/"Personal Mississippi Accent" Singing Of The Lyrical Content By David Ruffian On This One. I Couldn't Understand What He Was Saying Until I'd Listened To The 1968 Monitors Version!

 @BISHOP The Poet 
You are absolutely correct about " 🖊 pen more mighty than 🗡sword" Yet he does say prior to that line" since that day the💧tears would 🌧pour " referring to the first verse and the songs ending witj 🎤 adlibs mentioning💧tears and" 📜 letter full of💧 tears" I stand partially💯 corrected 👍<> thank you for your keen insight🙏

Robert Chatman

I thought he said ,, since that day the tears as small as a pin, is mightier than a shword.

The pen is mightier than the sword
