Subject: Lyr Add: CRY, CRY, CRY (Danny Johnson)
Here's one that danny johnson recorded, i dont know if its what youre looking for....

There's a freeway
runnin' through my head
my lover wants to leave me
says she's better off dead
it's a crazy city
and I've been gone too long
is there any gettin' back
where the buffalo roam
she cries for money
she nags for free
lately she's always screaming at me
phones turned off
the checks in the mail
we took a funny road to heaven
straight through hell

and she cries
cry cry cry
not always knowing why
sometimes she cries
cry cry cry
cry up a river
in an ocean of life

Her sixteen candles
burned out at 22
that's all right there's
a lot left for you
throw down the mirror
of your selfish conceit
and take a long look
at the bag lady
beggin' for a bite to eat
are you trying to find
what can't be found
like a room with no flowers
like a worn out clock
without any hours

repeat chorus

My daddy said
life is like a book
you don't know the end
is that understood
pick up the pieces
read between the lines
take what you want
and leave the rest behind

repeat chorus

even cowboys on the trail
get a tear in their eye
