All I Could Do Was Cry

Lyrics

I heard church bells ringing,
I heard a choir singing.
I saw my love walk down the aisle.
On her finger, he placed a ring, oh, oh.

One of my favorite songs ever! Etta sang the hell out of this song. I feel everything she is singing and I've never experienced what she's singing about.
