(Alan Jackson/Don Sampson)

You told me you don't love me when you walked out the door
I stood there feelin lonely, then the tears began to pour
What else could I do, I'd never felt like that before
So I cried an ol blue river i the middle of the floor

Now I'm up to my ears in tears
I'm cryin night and day since you went away
The things you used to say, honey, I no longer hear
That water's cold and clear, I'm drownin for you dear
Up to my ears in tears

Well I found some old love letters you wrote me years ago
But the words all ran together when the tears began to flow
Cause you left that water runnin, now it's got nowhere to go
If I can't wash away your memory guess I'll just go under slow

Now I'm up to my ears in tears
I'm cryin night and day since you went away
The things you used to say, honey, I no longer hear
That water's cold and clear, I'm drownin for you dear
Up to my ears in tears

The water's cold and clear
I'm drowning for you, dear
Up to my ears in tears
