Yes, I am cryin'
I got the blues and I don't know why
Yes, I am cryin'
I got the blues, I'm so dissatisfied
'Cause I've been cryin' through the night

Tears on my pillow
And I have been cryin' through the night
Weeping like a weeping willow
From cryin' through the night
Hear me cryin' through the night

I am lonely, downhearted and sad
'Cause I've lost the best woman that I ever had
To a friend of mine

Just can't figure out how it could be
That somebody like him could take her away from me
And it's on my mind, nearly all the time

Yes, I am cryin'
I got the blues and I don't know why
Yes, I am cryin'
I got the blues, I'm so dissatisfied
'Cause I've been cryin' through the night

Tears on my pillow
And I have been cryin' through the night
Weeping like a weeping willow
From cryin' through the night
Hear me cryin' through the night

Now I know just how best friends can be
'Cause he made sure you knew your best was with me
And it's on my mind

Here's a lesson much greater that wealth
Keep your business to you, yourself and no one else
And your smiling eyes, won't be cryin' like mine

Yes, I'm cryin'
I got the blues and I don't know why
Yes, I'm cryin'
I got the blues, I'm so dissatisfied
'Cause I've been cryin' through the night

Tears on my pillow
And I have been cryin' through the night
Weeping like a weeping willow
From cryin' through the night
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh

I'm weeping like anything willow
From cryin' through the night
Oh, oh, yeah
Hear me cryin', cryin', I'm cryin', cryin'
I'm cryin' baby, cryin' baby yeah
Even a fool can tell

That so many tears sho' enough done fell
And pretty soon before you know
I'll have enough tears to fill a water well
Hear me cryin' through the night
Oh yeah, cryin' through the night

And it's on my mind
Nearly all the time

Yes, I'm cryin'
I got the blues and I don't know why
Yes, I'm cryin'
I got the blues, I'm so dissatisfied
'Cause I've been cryin' through the night

Tears on my pillow
And I have been cryin' through the night
Weeping like a weeping willow
From cryin' through the night
Oh, oh, oh, ohh

I'm weeping like a weeping willow
Ohh, cryin' tears, cryin' tears
Through the night
