Julie London – Chances Are lyrics

Cry Me A River
Julie London
Written by Arthur Hamilton

Peaked at #9 in 1955
Actress/singer Julie London's only charted hit, featuring Barney Kessel on guitar. She performed
This song " live" in the 1956 film " The Girl Can't Help It" which starred Jayne Mansfield and Tom
Ewell. Later covered by Janice Harper as a minor 1960 Top 100 single, and by Joe Cocker as a
1970 Top 15 rock version.

Now you say you're lonely
You cry the whole night thorough
Well, you can cry me a river, cry me a river
I cried a river over you

Now you say you're sorry
For bein' so untrue
Well, you can cry me a river, cry me a river
I cried a river over you
