What's She Crying For?
Justin Townes Earle.
Album: Kids In The Street.
Intro: Em G C G C C6 D G D6
In the corner by the doorway, sitting all on her own,
D G D6 D7/F#
She's been there all night long on the phone,
With her head hanging down, there in the screen light,
D Bm7 G D C
See the tears on her face and hurt in her eyes.
And I wonder who she's talking to,
C A7 D
And I wonder why she's feeling so blue,
I don't know her, but I've seen her here before,
And I wonder what she's crying for.
Break: D Em C G C D G D6 D7/F#
Is she waiting for some old flame to show?
D D7 G D
Maybe it's bad news from Mom,
It's hard to say though I found,
The cause of most hurt these days is a lack of,
who to love in the world.
Now I don't know why I should care,
Lord knows I've got my own crosses to bear,
Last time I checked, there was no one keeping score,
D G D
I just wonder what she's crying for.
Break: G C D G D G C D G D
I'm not in the habit of taking strays, no,
I just asked if you thought,
She had some place she could go,
Now she don't strike me, as the helpless soul,
I just wonder what she's crying for,
D C D G
Yeah I wonder what she's crying for.
