Now you say you love me
But you cry the whole night through
You can cry me a river
Oh yes you're goin' to cry me a river
'Cause I cried a river over you

Now you say you're sorry for being so untrue
You may cry a river
You may cry me a river
I cried a river over you
Yes I did child, yes I did my child

You drove me nearly out of my head
You stood by and never shed a tear
But I remember every word that was said
Oh yes, I remember - never fear

You may cry me a river - c'mon now
Cry me a river
You may cry me a river
I cried a river for you (Oh how I cried)

You nearly drove me out of my own sweethead
You stood by - you never shed a tear for me.
I remember every crual word - everything that was said
Yes I remember - never you fear

You may cry me a river
I cried a river for you
Yes I cried a river for you

Turn back the tide of life, I cried - salty water runnin' down
I cried I love you
I cried I love you
I cried, I cried

You may cry, oh, she may cry now, a river of tears
A river of tears for you
You may cry now, she may cry, oh, she may cry now
You may cry, oh, she may cry now a river of tears
A river of tears for you

I cry you can cry me a river
Lord loves a cheerful giver
C'mon and cry me a river of tears
C'mon now and cry me a river of tears
C'mon now and cry me a river of tears
C'mon now - c'mon down and cry me a river
