Kyo Sakimoto - Sukiyaki
Misc Unsigned Bands
Sukiyaki:Kyo Sakimoto. #1 in USA in 1963. Bumped Lesly Gore's 'It's My Party,' out of top spot. (Yeah, I know it's different than what's on the lyrics sites. But this is from the first 1963 recording... and in my opinion, is still the best translation.) #1. (Capo up 7th fret for original.) G Em G Em I'll hold my head up high..looking to the sky, G Bm Em Am D7 so they won't see all the tears that are in my eyes. G Am C B7 No one will know, I'm going through, Em C Bm Am G C Bm Am my first lonely night without you. #2. G Em G Em I know the night will hide, sadness I feel inside, G Bm Em Am D7 no one will know of the smile, and my lips won't tell them. G Am C B7 Em I'm losing you, and going through, my first Bm Am G C G G7 lonely night without you. CHORUS: C G G7 As I walk alone, the lonely winds seem to say, Cm G A D D7 from this darkness on, all your nights will be this way. #3. G Em G Em So, I'll go on alone, pretending you're not gone. G Bm Em Am D7 But I can hide all the moments of love we knew. G Am C B7 Em C Bm Memories of you, as I go through, my first lonely Am G C G night without you. CHORUS: REPEAT#3. A sixties smash from Kraziekhat.
