The Rolling Stones - Fool To Cry (Official Promo)




The song was written by Mick Jagger and Keith Richards. "Fool to Cry" is a ballad from their 1976 album Black and Blue. Mick Taylor had just left the band and the rest of the Stones were left without a lead guitarist.


The recording of Black and Blue acted as a sort of audition for new guitarists, which led to session man Wayne Perkins playing guitar on this track.[citation needed] Jagger plays electric piano and Nicky Hopkins performs regular piano on the track, with Hopkins also playing the string synthesizer.


Released as the lead single off Black and Blue in 1976, "Fool to Cry" reached No. 6 on the UK Singles Chart and No. 10 on the US Billboard Hot 100. A music video was produced to promote the single.




Lyrics


When I come home baby

And I've been working all night long

I put my daughter on my knee, and she says

"Daddy what's wrong?"

I put my head on her shoulder

She whispers in my ear so sweet

You know what she says?

"Daddy you're a fool to cry

You're a fool to cry

And it makes me wonder why"


You know, I got a woman

And she lives in the poor part of town

And I go see her sometimes

And we make love, so fine

I put my head on her shoulder

She says, "Tell me all your troubles"

You know what she says?

She says, "Daddy you're a fool to cry

You're a fool to cry

And it makes me wonder why"


Daddy you're a fool to cry

Oh, I love you so much baby

Daddy you're a fool to cry

Daddy you're a fool to cry, yeah

She says, "Daddy you're a fool to cry

You're a fool to cry

And it makes me wonder why"


She says, "Daddy you're a fool to cry

Daddy you're a fool to cry

Daddy you're a fool to cry

Daddy you're a fool to cry


Even my friends say to me sometimes

And make out like I don't understand them

You know what they say?

They say, "Daddy you're a fool to cry

You're a fool to cry

You're a fool to cry

And it makes me wonder why"


I'm a fool baby

I'm a fool baby

I'm a certified fool, now

I want to tell ya

Gotta tell ya, baby

I'm a fool baby

I'm a fool baby

Certified fool for ya, mama, come on

I'm a fool

I'm a fool

I'm a fool
