​As Tears Go By

This song is by The Boxmasters and appears on the album Modbilly (2009).

This song is a cover of "As Tears Go By" by ​The Rolling Stones.
It is the evening of the day
I sit and watch the children play
Smiling faces I can see, but not for me
When I sit and watch as tears go by

My riches can't buy everything
I want to hear the children sing
All I hear is the sound of rain falling on the ground
When I sit and watch as tears go by

It is the evening of the day
I sit and watch the children play
Smiling faces I can see, but not for me
When I sit and watch as tears go by

It is the evening of the day
I sit and watch the children play
Doing things I used to do, they think are new
When I sit and watch as tears go by

Mick Jagger, Andrew Loog Oldham and Keith Richards
