CRYIN' TIME - RAY CHARLES

AFTER THE RECORD ENDED...

CRYIN' TIME by RAY CHARLES

 

What happened after the song ended:

 

A song I adore is RAY CHARLES’ "Crying Time" written by Buck Owens which just managed to reach No.50 on 10th February 1966. These are the lyrics:

 

Oh, it's cryin' time again, you're gonna leave me

 I can see that far away look in your eyes

 I can tell by the way you hold me darlin' Oooh

 That it won't be long before it's cryin' time

 

 Now they say that absence makes the heart grow fonder (fonder)

 And that tears are only rain to make love grow

 Well my love for you could never grow no stronger (stronger)

 If I lived to be a hundred years old

 

 Oh, it's cryin' time again, you're gonna leave me

 I can see that far away look in your eyes

 I can tell by the way you hold me darlin'. Yeah now

 That it won't be long before it's cryin' time

 

 Now you say you've found someone that you love better (better)

 That's the way it's happened every time before

 And as sure as the sun comes up tomorrow ('morrow)

 Cryin' time will start when you walk out the door

 

 Oh, it's cryin' time again, you're gonna leave me

 I can see that far away look in your eyes

 I can tell by the way you hold me darlin'. Alright now

 That it won't be long before it's cryin' time

 (That it won't be long before it's cryin' time)

 

Just thinking through what happened when the song was over I imagined the scenario of the writer (fictitious) 50 years later and his wife sitting him down and saying:

 

“ I’ve said to you for over 50 years, now, get a grip, you can’t be like this every week when I go to do the supermarket shopping. But you’ll be pleased to know I’ve now sorted it. I’m gonna do my orders online. I’ll not be going out. I won’t even have  “that far away look in my eyes” when I’m trying to think through my shopping list, the internet remembers it for you. “Now you say you've found someone that you love better”  Exactly – the guy who delivers the order I do love better than the one on the checkout, he relieves me of so much hassle.”

When I was a lad at school around 13 years old, our Maths teacher used to call me Wol. At the end of the year as we were moving up a class I plucked up courage to ask why he called me Wol. He told meit was thename of the deslexic owl in Winnie the Pooh. With my Harry Potter glasses he said I looked like the Wise Old Owl in the Winnie the Pooh stories.

 

Being the vain person I am I took it as a compliment
