About Part Where I Cry

"The Part Where I Cry" is a song written by country music singer Willie Nelson. After moving to Nashville in 1960, leveraged by the success of his songwriting, and helped by Harlan Howard, Nelson was signed by Joe Allison of Liberty Records. In August 1961, his first session with the label was held at Quonset Hut studio, where he recorded the song. It was later coupled with "Mr. Record Man" on the B-side. While it failed to chart, the single received airplay.

Life is a picture and I play the lead but my biggest line was goodbye
Now my leading lady has walked out on me and this is the part where I cried
I was great in the scene where she found someone new
You should have seen my look of surprise
And if you'll have just walk into the picture this is the part where I cry

And after the picture is over and it's judged for the part where you lied
The award of the chief meant that's given will be mine for the part where I cried
I was great in the scene...

Willie Nelson

Willie Hugh Nelson (pronounced /wɪli nɛlsən /; born April 30, 1933) is an American country music singer-songwriter, as well as an author, poet, actor, and activist. The critical success of the album Shotgun Willie (1973), combined with the critical and commercial success of Red Headed Stranger (1975) and Stardust (1978), made Nelson one of the most recognized artists in country music. He was one of the main figures of outlaw country, a subgenre of country music that developed at the end of the 1960s as a reaction to the conservative restrictions of the Nashville sound. Nelson has acted in over 30 films, co-authored several books, and has been involved in activism for the use of biofuels and the legalization of marijuana. more »
