Cry Me A River
Joe Cocker

Peak Position # 11 on 10-24-70


I keep on runnin' baby
I keep on runnin'
But I just can't hide
No, I just can't hide
I keep on hurtin' baby
I keep hurtin' so deep inside
So deep inside

Lord I need your smile
Child like the one I once knew
Made my grass green
And my blue skies blue
Lord was time when two was one
Tell me now girl
Where've all the good times gone

Cry me a river
Wash my blues all away
Cry me a river
Girl you are my riverboat
Take me away
Is reachin' out my hand
Won't ya please help me to my feet once again
Tears fallin like rain
Lord it's time
When everybody needs a friend
Girl where've you been

Lord I need your smile
Child like the one I once knew
Made my grass green
And my blue skies blue
Lord was a time when two was one
Where've all the good times gone

Cry me a river
Wash my blues all away
Cry me a river
Girl you are my riverboat
Take me away

    How can you say you love me
    After you've been so untrue
    I want you to cry me a river, cry me a river,
    I've cried a river over you

    How can you say you're sorry,
    After you've been so unkind,
    I want you to cry me a river, cry me a river,
    I've cried a river over you.
