Song title: Tell me why

by April Wine

Tell me why - Bruce version (7-Mar-2003)

Tell me why you cry, and why you lied to me
Tell me why you cry, and why you lied to me

Well I gave you everything I had
But you left me sittin’ on my own
Did you have to treat me so bad
All I do girl, is hang my head and moan

Tell me why you cry, and why you lied to me
Tell me why you cry, and why you lied to me

Well if it’s somethin’ that I might have said or done
Tell me what girl, and I’ll apologize
If you don’t I really can’t go on
Holdin’ back the tears from my eyes

Tell me why you cry, and why you lied to me
Tell me why you cry, and why’d you lie to me

Well I beg you on my bended knees
If you'd only listen to my plea
'Cos I really can't stand it, I'm so in love with (you)

Tell me why you cry, and why you lied to me
Tell me why you cry, and why you lied to me

Well I'm???
???on my knees
I really can't stand it, I'm so in love with (you)

Tell me why you cry, and why you lied to me
Tell me why you cry, and why you lied to me

Notes: On 7-Mar-2003, in Atlantic City Boardwalk Hall, Bruce dedicated this "to all the bands that played in these rooms and inspired us"
