Keith, Toby - Cryin' For Me (Wayman's Song) Lyrics

Got the news on Friday morning
But a tear I couldn't find
You showed me how I am supposed to live
Now you showed me how to die
I was lost til Sunday morning
I woke up to face my fear
While writing you this good bye song I found a tear

I'm going to miss that smile
I'm going to miss you my friend
Even though it hurts the way it ended up
Id do it all again

So play it sweet in heaven
Cause that's right where you want to be
I'm not cryin' cause I feel so sorry for you
I am cryin' for me

I got up and dialed your number
Your voice came on the line
That old familiar message
I have heard a thousand times
It just said, sorry that I missed you
Leave a message and god bless
I know that you think I am crazy
But I just had to hear your voice I guess

I'm going to miss that smile
I'm going to miss you my friend
Even though it hurts the way it ended up
Id do it all again

So play it sweet in heaven
Cause that's right where you want to be
I'm not cryin' cause I feel so sorry for you
I am cryin' for me


So play your upsidedown, left handed
Backward bass guitar
I'll see you on the other side superstar

I'm going to miss that smile
I'm going to miss you my friend
Even though it hurts the way it ended up
I'd do it all again

So play it sweet in heaven
Cause that's right where you want to be
I'm not cryin' cause I feel so sorry for you
I am cryin' for me

I'm still cryin'
I'm cryin' for me
I'm still cryin'

    Today I lost my Dad 10 yrs ago. I played this song at his service. My uncle said he knew I chose it. I miss you Dad

    This is exactly how I felt when I lost my buddy Vern Page! One of the greatest Steele players I ever met or played for!

  16. Craig Schrom

    Almost 10 years later and it still hits me hard. This song came out 9 months before my grandpa died who I followed into the fire service

  17. Melissa Carpenter

    This song is so special to me that's how I felt when I lost my best friend 19 half yrs ago

  18. XxUgLyBoYxX

    November 8th, 2019 at 3:00 A.M. I lost my best friend. Known him since I was 5. He will forever be my best friend. He will Always be loved. If I had the chance to stop him I would. I just wish I could have said goodbye. February 4th, 2019 9:36 p.m. someone who I went to school with. Someone who I was to chicken to ask her out, took her life. She was always so happy. She died 2 days after I turned 17. June 30th 2018 I lost my grandmother. She was there for me through the most painful times I ever had. If it wasn't for her I wouldn't be who I am today. She gave me the Jeep I have now. When I went to court, she said the badman is gone. And handed me the keys to my 1994 Jeep Cherokee. If I could bring her back I would. I have made alot of mistakes in my life and all three have forgiven me for it. Y'all stay safe in heaven. I love all of y'all. 🙏 Goodnight.

  19. Othello Sparks

    This is the last song I listened to when I got the news about my friend, who tragically died in a car accident, I still think about him and how much he affected many peoples life in good ways
    If I could see him smile again, I would do anything,
    Miss you kylin, I remember not even knowing what was to come of either of us after middle school, years later and you are still gone but forever in my heart

  20. cheryl usher

  22. K Wright

    We should all have a friend like this. I know I certainly did. Miss you Matt and Big Nanny you are both always in my heart.

    Chewy Suarez

    Just recently lost my best friend. This song explains it all.


    “I believe that imagination is stronger than knowledge.
    That myth is more potent than history.
    That dreams are more powerful than facts.
    That hope always triumphs over experience.
    That laughter is the only cure for grief.
    And I believe that love is stronger than death."
    Robert Fulghum

  24. Ruth Boykin

    Absolutely beautiful, heartfelt song! Thank you.

  25. Sandra young

    My son was such a big fan of Toby. He looked a lot like Toby, and one time when Toby was playing at the Iowa State Fair a bunch of girls started following my son, thinking he was the star. I lost my son to suicide in 2016, this song really touches my heart.

  26. Jess Peoples

    I lost my stepdad to cancer this morning. RIP gene. Love you. Cancer is a big ugly monster.

  27. Larry Huggins

  28. American Pride

    "You showed me how I'm supposed to live
    And now you showed me how to die
    I'm gonna miss that smile
    I'm gonna miss you my friend
    Even though it hurts the way it ended up
    I'd do it all again
    So play it sweet in heaven
    'Cause That's right where you want to be
    I'm not cryin' cause I feel so sorry for you
    I'm cryin' for me
    I got up and dialed your number
    And your voice came on the line
    With that old familiar message
    I'd heard a thousand times it just said
    Sorry that I missed you
    Leave a message and god bless
    I know you think I'm crazy
    But I had to hear your voice again"

    I miss you mom, its been about nearly 3 months since I lost you. I miss you so much. You were too young to die, and I am to young to experience this. I haven't even graduated high school yet. I m gonna miss your sweet voice and your beautiful smile. I wanna see you again. I know how much you loved your country and rock and metal, just like me. Ill see you one day again

    My brother, and I, were born with a kidney disease. He got a transplant and lived 10 weeks. He died in 83. When this song, first came out......TEARS, for my brother, because I, too had a transplant, but, still alive and kicking, after, almost 12 years. If, only he would have waited for a new kidney. Who knows? Miss him, every day.

  88. mike j

    A beautiful expression of his pain when writing this. This wasn’t written to be a chart topping hit. This was written as a tribute to his friend and a way to say goodbye. This song has more impact than most songs. We’ve all lost friends to unfair circumstances. This song helped me process the death of a man whom I worked with and respected. RIP Corrections Officer Tyra. I’ve never forgot the lessons you taught me.

  89. jersey-242

    So today I lost my best friend Of 30 years😢 it's so hard!

  90. love me leave me

    2016 when I saw u I knew I was meant for it's dead and the love has only grown and I gave it all up to isn't supposed to beat u down

  91. Norma Jean

    Fine line between a man's pride & his image of a man.Country music is known for predominately white people's music.And that's ok.U see real country is about God ,family ,friends & love.(a broken heart)
    That fine line I'm talking about,Take this beautiful song 4 example . It was written for another man.A country okie white boy talking about missing a black man who's died.U see any man brave enough to sing about his love 4 another no matter what color,Has 2 be one hell of a man to sing to the world takes alot of courage I would say.wouldnt u ? Damn Toby Keith is a hell of a man!! I'm proud 2 have admired him all these years.To not know him personally I have to say I feel I'm pretty accurate w/ knowing hes really what everybody??? ONE HELL OF A COWBOY!!! Thankyou TK

  92. Kota Lane

    This song came out a few days after my uncle passed away and it helped me so much. My grandmother passed away this morning and this song has been on repeat for an hour 😢 i love my Gramma my uncle and i appreciate this song more than i can explain
