'Come to me now, you know we're so low
And life is brief'.


Richard Manuel in 'Tears of Rage', Woodstock 1969. Andere uitvoering van 'Tears of Rage' tijdens 'Live at The Getaway', Saugerties in New York, 1985, krap een jaar voor Manuel's dood. Opname van Whispering Pines van deze gig, met van de overgebleven Bandleden Rick Danko op basgitaar en Garth Hudson op orgel.

Tears Of Rage  The Band

We carried you in our arms on Independence Day
And now you'd throw us all aside and put us all away
Oh, what dear daughter 'neath the sun could treat a father so?
To wait upon him hand and foot and always tell him "no"

Tears of rage, tears of grief
Why must I always be the thief?
Come to me now, you know we're so low
And life is brief

It was all very painless
When you went out to receive
All that false instruction
Which we never could believe
And now the heart is filled with gold
As if it was a purse
But, oh, what kind of love is this
Which goes from bad to worse?

Tears of rage, tears of grief
Why must I always be the thief?
Come to me now, you know we're so low
And life is brief

We pointed you the way to go
And scratched your name in sand
Though you just thought it was nothing more
Than a place for you to stand
I want you to know that while we watched
You discovered no one would be true
And I myself was among
The ones who thought
It was just a childish thing to do

Tears of rage, tears of grief
Why must I always be the thief?
Come to me now, you know we're so low
And life is brief
