proud lyrics – johnny crawford

we had a quarrel the other day
and i just let you walk away

cause i was proud
so proud and strong
yes, i was much too proud
to say i was wrong

you turned back crying
and called to me
but i just stood there silently


some other guy
might have called to you
and said don’t go
i need you so

but i wouldn’t do it
no, i couldn’t do it
and so i let you say goodbye

and i was proud i let you cry
proud i held my head up high
and now i’m just a
proud and lonely guy
