Hootie & The Blowfish - Let Her Cry Lyrics




She sits alone
By a lamp post
Trying to find a thought that's escaped her mind
She says Dar's the one
I love the most
But Stipe's not far behind

She never lets me in
Only tell me where's she's been
When she's had too much to drink
I say that I don't care
I just run my hands through her dark hair
Then I pray to God you gotta help me fly away and just...

Let her cry, if the tears fall down like rain
Let her sing, if it eases all her pain
Let her go, let her walk right out on me
And if the sun comes up tomorrow
Let her be, let her be.

This morning I woke up alone
Found a note standin' by the phone
Saying maybe, maybe I'll be back some day
I wanted to look for you
You walked in
I didn't know just what I should do
So I sat back down and had a beer and felt sorry for myself saying...

Let her cry, if the tears fall down like rain
Let her sing, if it eases all her pain
Let her go, let her walk right out on me
And if the sun comes up tomorrow
Let her be, let her be.

[Solo]

Let her cry, if the tears fall down like rain
Let her sing, if it eases all her pain
Let her go, let her walk right out on me
And if the sun comes up tomorrow
Let her be, oh, oh.

Last night I tried to leave
Cried so much I could not believe
She was the same girl I fell in love with long ago

She went in the back to get high
I sat down on my couch and cried
Yelling oh mama please help me
Won't you hold my hand and...

Let her cry, if the tears fall down like rain
Let her sing, if it eases all her pain
Let her go, let her walk right out on me
And if the sun comes up tomorrow
Let her be, oh, oh.

Let her cry, if the tears fall down like rain
Let her sing, if it eases all her pain
Let her go, let her walk right out on me
And if the sun comes up tomorrow
Let her be, oh, let her be.

  1. Denise Faulk

    I had a friend from this time in my life that told me every time he heard this song over all these years he thought of me. I was the reckless one that everyone kept the eye on, I went in the back to get high. let her go let her walk out on me. he still checks on me. love you r.t.

  2. Christina L

    I can relate so much to this right now.. Can’t love anyone else until completely healed, Lord help me 😞🙏🏼

  3. José Antonio Pérez Cruz

    Ella se sienta sola junto a una farola
    Tratando de encontrar el pensamiento que se le escapó de la mente
    Ella dice: "Papá es el que más amo
    Pero Stipe no está muy lejos "
    Ella nunca me deja entrar, solo me dice dónde ha estado
    Cuando ha bebido demasiado
    Digo que no me importa, solo paso mis manos por su cabello oscuro
    Entonces le pido a Dios que me ayudes a volar
    Y solo déjala llorar si las lágrimas caen como lluvia
    Déjala cantar si alivia todo su dolor
    Déjala ir, déjala caminar sobre mí
    Y si sale el sol mañana, déjala ser, déjala ser
    Esta mañana me desperté solo, encontré una nota junto al teléfono
    Diciendo: "Tal vez, tal vez vuelva algún día"
    Quería buscarte
    Entraste, no sabía lo que debía hacer
    Así que me senté y tomé una cerveza y sentí pena por mí
    Diciendo que la dejes llorar si las lágrimas caen como la lluvia
    Déjala cantar si alivia todo su dolor
    Déjala ir, déjala caminar sobre mí
    Y si sale el sol mañana, déjala ser, déjala ser
    No no no no
    Déjala llorar déjala llorar si las lágrimas caen como lluvia
    Déjala cantar si alivia todo su dolor
    Déjala ir, déjala caminar sobre mí
    Y si sale el sol mañana, déjala ser, ah
    Anoche intenté irme, lloré tanto que no podía creer
    Ella era la misma chica de la que me enamoré hace mucho tiempo
    Ella fue en la parte de atrás para drogarse
    Me senté en mi sofá y lloré, gritando
    "Oh, mamá, por favor ayúdame"
    ¿No tomarás mi mano y
    Déjala llorar si las lágrimas caen como lluvia
    Déjala cantar si alivia todo su dolor
    Déjala ir, déjala caminar sobre mí
    Y si sale el sol mañana, déjala ser
    Déjala llorar, si las lágrimas caen como lluvia
    Déjala cantar, si eso alivia todo su dolor
    Déjala ir, déjala caminar sobre mí
    Y si sale el sol mañana, déjala ser
    Ah, dejala ser

  93. Hugo Chavez

  97. elizabeth cristobal

    I’m crying right now. I lost my sister 3/8/19 to alcoholism. She was only 39yrs. old. She was battling demons that plagued her soul from a very young age. She had tumultuous relationships all her life. She just couldn’t take it anymore and the last 7 yrs. were the worst. Binge drinking, depression,suicide attempts, stealing, selling her self, child neglect, endangerment, and abandonment, car accidents, jail, you name it. I turned my back on her and didn’t speak to her the last years of her life. I was hurt by all the shit she did to everyone in the family. But once she passed I felt horrible and still blame myself to this day. She was my sister. I miss her and it breaks my heart that I’ll never hear her voice again. To anyone reading this, living through having to turn your back on a loved one because of addiction, make your peace with them. You don’t have to forgive but value the moments of their sobriety because one day she’s here and the next she’s gone

  98. Arianna Moreno

    A great song
