What's She Crying For?
Justin Townes Earle.
Album: Kids In The Street.
Capo 6.

Intro: Em G C G C C6 D G D6

G                             C
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,
         G                  C
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.

C                              G
And I wonder who she's talking to,
C                      A7         D
And I wonder why she's feeling so blue,
        G             C
I don't know her, but I've seen her here before,
      D                 G
And I wonder what she's crying for.

Break: D Em C G C D G D6 D7/F#

G                  C
Is she waiting for some old flame to show?
D              D7        G  D
Maybe it's bad news from Mom,
             G            G
It's hard to say though I found,
C                                      D
The cause of most hurt these days is a lack of,
                   G    D
who to love in the world.

C                      G
Now I don't know why I should care,
     C                     D
Lord knows I've got my own crosses to bear,
G                                 C
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

    C                          G
I'm not in the habit of taking strays, no,
  C                 C#
I just asked if you thought, 
She had some place she could go,
G                        C
Now she don't strike me, as the helpless soul,
       D                        G
I just wonder what she's crying for,
     D C      D                 G
Yeah I wonder what she's crying for.
