    You can play along in GCEA with your capo on the first fret!

    When King became the Drifters' lead singer in 1958 – the entire group had been replaced by their manager – he took over from the wildly successful Clyde McPhatter. In just a couple of years, though, King made the new Drifters as successful as the old ones. The final single he recorded with them was "I Count the Tears," a Top 10 R&B record with a chorus that may sound familiar: Its melody was borrowed for the Rokes' 1966 Italian hit "Piangi Con Me," which the Grass Roots famously recorded as "Let's Live for Today."
