LaVern Baker Lyrics

I cried a tear because of you
I cried a tear because we're through
I cried a tear what else could I do
But cry and sigh for love of you

I felt a tear fall in my heart
You fooled me so I wasn't smart
I can't believe that we must part
Come back to stay, let's make a new start
I cried a tear because of you
I cried a tear because we're through
Please make my dreams of you come true
Don't make me cry a tear for you
Don't make me cry a tear for you

She is singing from her heart. Can you feel the tears and pain coming from her soul? The horns, saxophones drums and guitars are awesome in the back ground.

Gary Thomas

It is ironic that I should see your comments as I searched out Laverne Baker's "I Cried a Tear."
James Baldwin sent me here. To meet you??


We just don't hear voices like this today!   She tells a story with that gorgeous voice.  Thanks for sharing.

LaVern Baker was from Chicago. Although she's considered a pioneer of rock 'n roll, her style is sometimes credited as "Northern Soul."

bill chew it's unfortunate since LaVern Baker's originals were so much better than Georgia Gibbs' covers.
