SongLyricsSunday 1/20/19 theme “Cry”

https://jimadamsauthordotcom.wordpress.com/2019/01/19/here-we-go-again/

SongLyricSunday is changing but I still love the challenge of finding a song each week to share. This week the first one that came to mind had just been chosen by another responder to the challenge but I listened to both and found them different enough that both are worth the time!

I am a little biased however…..I do love Ms. Baez so…

Cry me a River by Joan Baez
Lyrics
Now you say you’re lonely
You cried the long night through
Well, you can cry me a river, cry me a river
I cried a river over you
Now you say you’re sorry
For being so untrue
Well, you can cry me a river, cry me a river
I cried, cried, cried a river over you
You drove me, nearly drove me, out of my head
While you never shed a tear
Remember, I remember, all that you said
You told me love was too plebeian
Told me you were through with me and
Now you say, you say you love me
Well, just to prove that you do
Come on and cry me a river, cry me a river
‘Cause I cried a river over you
You drove me, nearly drove me, out of my head
While you never shed a tear
Remember, remember, all that you said
Told me love was too plebeian
Told me you were through with me and
Now, now you say you love me
Well, just to prove you do
Come on and cry, cry, cry me a river, cry me a river
‘Cause I cried a river over you
If my pillow talk, imagine what it would have said
Could it be a river of tears I cried in bed?
So you can cry me a river
Daddy, go ahead and cry that river
‘Cause I cried, how I cried a river over you
How I cried a river over you
Songwriters: Arthur Hamilton

Thought a blog might help me develop better writing habits so I could finally finish my book, 16 years in the writing, but so far it's mostly photos and FUN!

    1. No I think the sarcasm is still there. I read somewhere years ago she was singing this to Bob Dylan (along with Diamonds and Rust) but who knows if that was true! This is definitely a poignant, sincere version of the song though.
      Keep up the good work, Epic.

  1. I’d never heard this song, before. She does a great job of singing it. I haven’t listened to much from Joan Baez, but this sounds very different from her Folk type songs. Nice.
