Tears Of Joy Lyrics

by Lucinda Williams

Uprooted and restless, I paid the cost
I've been a mess, misguided and lost
But I've been so blessed since our paths have crossed
That's why I'm crying tears of joy

In my own little world since I was sixteen
Little miss playgirl making a scene
Then you took this girl and you made her your queen
That's why I'm crying tears of joy

I used to play games with my boyfriends
Fashion and fame, hip little trends
Now I have a real man, don't have to pretend
And that's why I'm crying tears of joy

I'll be your woman, be your everything
You be my baby, you be my king
You give my life meaning that's why I wear your ring
And why I'm crying tears of joy
And that's why I'm crying tears of joy
That's why I'm crying tears of joy
