All I Could Do Was Cry  Etta James

At Last (1960)
The chord progression here is relatively simple, although effective. What
really makes this song stand out is the wrenching delivery that James throws
behind it, and the power with which she spits even just that second "rice"
makes it clear that she is not a woman to be trifled with. Although this
song can be played with a capo on the first fret (and probably should be if
you plan on using the delicate arpeggiation of the original) it sounds great
with a single guitar belting out simple barre chords and a singer with a
voice big enough to do it justice.
[G#] [C#] [D#] [G#]  
[G#]I [C#]heard [D#]church bells [G#]ring
I [C#]heard a [D#]choir [G#]singing
[C#]I saw my [D#]love walk [G#]down the [Fm]aisle
on her [C#]finger [D#] he placed [G#]a ring
(N.C.)
Whoahhhh whoah..
[C#]I saw them [D#] holding [G#]hands
She was [C#]standing there [D#] with my [G]man
[C#]I heard them [D#]promise, "'Til [G#]death do us [Fm]part"
Each [C#]word Was a [D#]pain in my [G#]heart
Chorus :
[C#]All I could [D#]do was c[G#]ry
All I could do was cry
[C#]I was [D#]losing the [G#]man that I [Fm]love
and [C#]all I could [D#]do was [G#]cry
And [C#]now the [D#]wedding is [G#]over
[C#]Rice, rice [D#]has been thrown over their [G#]heads
[C#]For them [D#]life has [G#]just [Fm]begun
but [C#]mine is [D#]at an [G#]end
Ohh oh... (chorus)
