As mentioned on the recent tour by Tony Butler, he states ”Tracks of My Tears” was one of Stuart’s favourite songs.

The song “The Tracks of My Tears” was written by Miracles members Smokey Robinson (lead vocalist), Pete Moore (bass vocalist), and Marv Tarplin (guitarist).

It is also a multiple award-winning and much covered love ballad introduced in 1965 by The Miracles on Motown‘s’ Tamla label.

The Big Country cover was recorded as the B side to “Chance” in 1983.

 

 

Tracks of my Tears

People say I’m the life of the  party

Cause I tell a joke or  two

And though I might be  laughing

Loud and  hearty

Deep inside I’m blueSo take a good look at my face

You’ll see my smile looks out of place

If you look closer it’s easy to  trace

The tracks of my tears

I need you, need you, need you

Since you left me

If you see me with another girl

Look like I’m having funAlthough  she might be cute

She’s just a  substitute

Because you’re the  permanent one

So take a good look  at my face

You’ll see my smile  looks out of place

If you look  closer it’s easy to trace

The tracks of my tears

I need you, need  you, need you(Outside)

 I’m  masquerading(Inside) my love is  fading

I’m just a clown

Since you put me down

My smile is my make-up

I  wear since my break-up with you

Baby take a good look at my face

You’ll see my smile looks out of place

If you look closer it’s easy to trace

The tracks of my tears
