Sorrow

Album: Best of Bowie (1973)
Charted: 3
  • With your long blond hair and your eyes of blue
    The only thing I ever got from you
    Was sorrow, sorrow

    You're acting funny, try to spend my money
    You out there playing your high class games
    Of sorrow, sorrow

    You never do what you know you ought to
    Something tells me you're the devil's daughter
    Sorrow, sorrow

    I tried to find her cause I can't resist her
    I never knew just how much I missed her
    Sorrow, sorrow

    With your long blond hair and your eyes of blue
    The only thing I ever got from you
    Was sorrow, sorrow

    With your long blond hair, I couldn't sleep last night
    With your long blond hair Writer/s: Richard Gottehrer, Jerry Goldstein, Bob Feldman

  • Davidtpayne from Stoke-on-trentA all-time clasic song
  • Zabadak from London, EnglandAlthough the original was by The McCoys, Bowie's cover was inspired by the version by The Merseys. Also, FYI, Amsterdam was not on Pin-Ups.
