Francis Cabrel sings “La dame de Haute-Savoie” et “Des yeux bleus pleurant sous la pluie”

Months earlier in this endless year of Covid 19, French troubadour Francis Cabrel generously performed nightly “confinement” concerts streaming on Facebook. One of the highlights of these sessions was this performance: “La dame de Haute-Savoie,” is of course one of Cabrel’s best known tunes, while the country classic “Blue Eyes Crying in the Rain,” was written by Fred Rose in 1947. The song was recorded by C&W legends Roy Acuff, Hank Williams and even Elvis Presley, yet the most popular recording came in 1975 by country singer Willie Nelson.
