Cry, Cry, Cry : Dancing With Tears In My eyes

Alvin Youngblood Hart : Dancing With Tears In My Eyes


I love Alvin Youngblood Hart because he's a great guitar player, singer songwriter, and of course, because like me, he's a old-time blues lover and a fan of the great Leadbelly.

"Dancing with tears in my eyes",is not a cover of the new wave hit by Ultravox, but a much more ancient Tin Pan Alley song in 3/4 time, that Alvin took from Lead who, in turn had learnt it in the thirties. It's a good song about sadness and life that must go on.
