All I Could Do Is Cry Lyrics

by Etta James

I heard church bells ringing
I heard a choir singing
I saw my love walk down the aisle
On her finger, he placed a ring

I saw them holding hands
She was standing there with my man
I heard them promise "'Til death do us part"
Each word was a pain in my heart

All I could do, all I could do was cry
All I could do was cry
I was losing the man that I love
And all I could do was cry

And now the wedding is over
Rice, rice has been thrown over their heads
For them life has just begun
But mine is ending

All, all I could do, all I could do was cry
All I could do was cry
I was losing the man that I love
And all I could do was cry (REPEAT)
