Joan Baez - Cry Me A River 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

Joan Baez Cry Me A River Comments
  1. Laura Lorente

    Yo la oí por ella hace tiempo, y la canta fenomenal!!

  2. Divine Miss B

    Sublime ... Joan can sing anything 💗

  3. haider's live piano music

    great balanced vocal
    haider a khan

  4. Paul Lamy

    Ella is the best this comes in at a close 2nd.

  5. Anotheryou21

    Baez is something of an enigma to me. I never understood why such a sensational voice was forever singing material that didn't fully display all its charms. Maybe I was wrong. Maybe those lovely old folk songs from the early days were perfect for it. One of the purest, most perfect voices I have ever heard. This wonderful song doesn't seem to bring out the best in it but it is great to hear her sing something out of her usual wheelhouse for a change.

  6. Literatura BDSM

    The most polite "go fuck yourself" I've ever heard!

  7. musik102

    In fact Julie didn't have a voice to talk of. It is said that you couldn't hear her even a few feet away. Unlike, Joan who had a voice that could knock your hat off.

  8. Pc Pc

    Baez is. great singer...Beray

  9. Mata Pöze

    Baez is doing a very nice job on this jazz ballad though she isn't a jazz singer, but please don't compare Joan Baez to this uncomparable jazz singer Ella Fitzgerald, it has nothing to do with what Baez can do on this song.

  10. musica tiranna55

    quando si è grandi...lo si è sempre!!!

  11. musica tiranna55

  27. Ali NEGRÃO

    Boa musica

  28. jdsol1938

    so true

  29. MiserableOldFart

    I've heard that, and not taking anything away from it, but Julie didn't have the voice that Joan had when she recorded this. To each his own..

  30. jdsol1938

    try Julie Lundon

  31. MiserableOldFart

    This is the best cover of this song I've ever heard.

  32. Caitlin Gilligan

    She was, is and always will be beyond beautiful.

  33. Jacob Sadler

    ella fitjerald has the best versiion of this

  34. TaelelKwaelid

    wonderful. thx you a lot for all Joan's song you share :)

  35. raymond gaspard Hauser

    Une voix superbe et une chanson poignante aussi: "adieu gueule d'amour"!

  36. John Mercer

    fuck off coca cola adverts!

  37. Claude Jacques Bonhomme

    Je suis d'accord / I agree!

  38. VinylForest

    @Scout4Me1 - I hadn't heard Joan Baez sing "Cry Me A River" it's nice. There are many versions of this song, my favourite is by Dinah Washington, it's wonderful!

  39. Lakshman DeSilva

    I think they all are good....

  40. Rudi Polt

    fine song!
    Aloha from Hawaii!

  41. pattycrowe

    @DecoLage100 yes! definitely Joan Baez.

  42. frenchfilmbug2

    I think this version is just exquisite.

  43. halothewynd1

    @OhTerr
    My apologies. You're quite correct. As you probably know it's on "Diamonds and Rust in the Bullring (1989)"

  44. TheRunner75

    Julie London and Ella Fitzgerald remain the best in this song. This is a honest interpretation.

  45. halothewynd1

    Love Julie London but this is wonderfully sung by Joan. If you like this try Joan's recording of Leonard Cohen's "Famous Blue Raincoat" It's on the Baptism album. Fabulous!

  46. Greg Donley

    i do enjoy :) i was just curious, and i was wondering because i'm using it in a school project

  47. Greg Donley

    was this song in v for vendetta? or was it another version?
