Subject: Lyr Add: CRY, CRY, CRY (Johnny Cash)
And the Johnny Cash version......

Words and music by Johnny Cash
As recorded by Johnny Cash on "With His Hot and Blue Guitar" (1957)

Ever'body knows where you go when the sun goes down.
I think you only live to see the lights uptown.
I wasted my time when I would try, try, try,
'Cause when the lights have lost their glow, you'll cry, cry, cry.

Soon your sugar-daddies will all be gone.
You'll wake up some cold day and find you're alone.
You'll call for me, but I'm gonna tell you bye, bye, bye.
When I turn around and walk away, you'll cry, cry, cry.

You're gonna cry, cry, cry, and you'll cry alone.
When ev'ryone's forgotten and you're left on your own,
You're gonna cry, cry, cry.

I lie awake at night to wait till you come in.
You stay a little while and then you're gone again.
Ever' question that I ask, I get a lie, lie, lie.
For ever' lie you tell, you're gonna cry, cry, cry.

When your fickle love gets old, no one will care for you,
Then you'll come back to me for a little love that's true.
I'll tell you no and then you'll ask me why, why, why.
When I remind you of all of this, you'll cry, cry, cry.

You're gonna cry, cry, cry, and you'll want me then.
It'll hurt when you think of the fool you've been.
You're gonna cry, cry, cry.
