Hank Williams Jr. – I Can't Cry Back In lyrics

Well somebody's hurtin' and I know why
And he's a livin' in torment from a love that won't die
He thought it was funny when she walked out on him
Now the love that he laughed out, he can't cry back in

He faces the sunrise and prays for the night
And when the darkness gets around him then he prays for the light
His mixed up emotions just keep choking him
'Cause the love that he laughed out, he can't cry back in

Now you've heard the story of one foolish man
By now you know it's me so give me some pity if you can
I know it's all over but when will it end
This love that I laughed out, I can't cry back in
The love that I laughed out, Lord, I can't cry back in
