Early '50s crooner Johnnie Ray introduced this song with what would remain its biggest hit recording. It would later become rather popular with country recording artists, although it was also among Ray Charles' more notable hits.
If your sweetheart sends a letter of goodbye,
It’s no secret you’ll feel better if you cry.
When waking from a bad dream,
Don’t you sometimes think it’s real?
But it’s only false emotions that you feel.
If your heartaches seem to hang around too long,
And your blues keep getting bluer with each song,
Remember, sunshine can be found behind a cloudy sky,
So let your hair down, and go on and cry.
Jerry Lee Lewis
