Gregg Wright: LISTEN

Cry Myself A River

(Gregg Wright)
October 20, 2009
From the album "King of the Rockin' Blues!" Written and produced by Gregg Wright
I'm gonna cry myself a river,
and tie a rock onto my shoes!
I'm gonna cry myself a river, 
and tie a rock onto my shoes! 
I'm gonna jump into the cold rushing water, 
and try to wash away the Blues!

I've got the Blues so bad, this mornin' . . . 
you know, the morning sky looks red! 
I've got the Blues so bad, this mornin' . . . 
you know, the morning sky looks red! 
So, I'm gonna draw my long black curtains, baby . . . 
and jump back in the bed! (lemme tell ya why!)
I ain't got no kinda money . . . 
and I don't know what to do!! 
My Baby stopped by this mornin' . . . she said "Man, I'm through with you!"
So I'm gonna cry myself a river,
and tie a rock onto my shoes!
I'm gonna jump into the cold rushing water, Baby . . . 
and try to wash away the Blues!

I want you to tell everybody, 
don't bother knockin' on my door! 
I want you to tell everybody, 
don't bother knockin' on my door!
Ya see, I'm in the dark and cryin' Baby . . . 
and I ain't comin' out no more, . . . no more!
