Here are the lyrics to the song I asked about- "Don't Let The Sun Catch You Crying". "Don't let the sun catch you crying/Cryin on my front door/ Cause you know this man done you wrong/And your daddy don't love you no more//You can cry...cry..cry ..cry//Cause this man can't love you no more." Does anyone know who the original artist is?

rocks, Don't Let The Sun Catch You Crying, was written by Joe Greene In 1946. Louis Jordan had a 1946 R&B hit with the song. This is not to be confused with the song with the same title, recorded by Gerry & The Pacemakers in 1964. They are totally different songs.

Here are a couple of great versions.

Ray Charles in 1960

Dr. John and Mavis Staples

Hope that helps.
