It is the evening of the day
I sit and watch the children play
Smiling faces I can see
But not for me
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
I sit and watch
As tears go by
It is the evening of the day
I sit and watch the children play
Doin' things I used to do
They think are new
I sit and watch
As tears go by

One of the first albums I bought- Sam Goody $3.00 ($6 for double albums).
Bill Wyman just turned 80. YIKES.

As classic as it gets ...... lots of memories

This is not a judgement or criticism, but for some reason, I'm reminded of Spinal Tap singing "All the Way Home" {#Cheesygrin}


1st time in eleven years!! 

I guess we can expect it again in 2026, when I'll finally be retired (if not alive)...

Yeah, she released a recording of it before they did.
Still excellent (look! mop-top Willem Defoe on the cover photo)
Fifty Years.  Sometimes they missed  by a jot. Toss the strings on this original and listen to a modern live version.
i just love the brian jones-era stones stuff.
Nice transition from Supergrass's "Evening of the Day"
A very evocative song - makes me think of black & white newsreels of Mick and poor, doomed Brian Jones. Well done for playing this. Yeah - think it was for Marianne.

aha!!! It all makes sense now!!!
I read somewhere that two of them were locked / locked themselves in a bathroom and had to come up with a song before they could leave. Wonder if its got a blue plaque on the wall?
