Robert Cray - Cry For Me Baby Lyrics

Well I've cried so much for you
Baby, there's nothing new

Well, I've cried so much for you
Baby that's nothing new

Now I wish I had one dollar
For all the times I've cried for you

Almost every night
I cry myself to sleep
Everybody else is happy
But I'll just weep, weep, weep

And these tears, tears, tears
Why won't they let me be?

Now I wish just once
You'd cry for me

Oh, yes!

Why should I remember?
How can I forget?
I wake up every morning
And my pillow is soaking wet

From these tears, tears, tears
Why won't they let me be?

Now I wish just once
You'd cry for me

Oh, yeah!


Yes, yes, yeah!

Cry for me

    I can't understand why this video isn't on general sale. If I'm right, This was taken from a TV broadcast. There was also a radio broadcast a couple of days earlier,( I've still got a copy of that) This concert was absolutley awsome. I would love a video of the night they put out on the radio.

    This was the gig that turned me onto the blues. Than you eric for introducing me to these fantastic musisians.
