Billy Bragg - Tears Of My Tracks Lyrics




I'm down, but I'm not out
Lord I'm hurting
I'm down, but I'm not out
But I feel blue
You know that I'm down, but I'm not out
Lord I'm hurting
I'm down, but I'm not out
But I feel blue

I sold all my vinyl yesterday
At a boot sale out on the highway
And now my room's full of fresh air

So I'm down, but I'm not out
Lord I'm hurting
I'm down, but I'm not out
But I feel blue

Somebody owns all my albums now
They probably don't even wonder how
My name got written on the sleeves

So I'm down, but I'm not out
Lord I'm hurting
I'm down, but I'm not out
But I feel blue

I opened the window
I let in the sun
My record collection has ended
For someone else's just begun

I'm down, but I'm not out
Lord I'm hurting
I'm down, but I'm not out
But I feel blue

I'm down, but I'm not out
Lord I'm hurting
I'm down, but I'm not out
But I feel blue

Yeah, yeah, yeah...

  1. jay soper

    check out the Johnny Rivers version of this gem - the best ever!

  2. james beard

    Was he just trying to prove that this should be sung in an American accent?

    Chris Naylor

    Not sure he was trying to prove it, but as per Thrillist article
    https://www.thrillist.com/entertainment/nation/why-do-british-singers-sound-american
    " ...Billy Bragg, who's normally pretty cool with singing like a Brit, once said, "You can't sing something like 'Tracks of My Tears' in a London accent… the cadences are all wrong.""

  3. Chris Alberts

    great cover

  4. Leebo

    Love this, it's some sound for one man, I think it has a bit of an elvis costello ring to it. Great post!

  5. Tornfreedom

    Spotify had a perfect cover by Soul Asylum, very slick. But the only one I can find on Youtube is at Ann Arbor, live, and it sounds like the whole band has flu and is having a very off night.

  6. Linda Garrison

    he does this song justice....love it

  7. TheLaeis

    nice song

  8. Buster Man

    Im not into covers but this is just done with feeling that I love it.

  9. eyeworks88

    Does he have the Deathly Hallows symbol on his t-shirt in this picture?

    vaultsuit

    U.S. Cold War-era Civil Defense emblem. Harry Potter is from the 90s/00s, the pic is form 80s I guess.
