Cry To Me Guitar Lesson 
By Soloman Burke

I hope this Cry To Me Guitar Lesson is helpful as I play on building many more pages on this site showcasing many great songs like this one.

Solomon Burke recorded Cry To Me back in 1961. With his version he managed to get into two charts at the same time. Other artists like Berry Harris, The Rolling Stones and Tom Petty And The Heartbreakers also recorded versions.

Marc Broussard also has a new updated very soulful version you want to check out.

 Lyrics & Chords In Pdf

There are only three chords in this song and it is played in the key of E using the following:

  • B7 
  • A7 (optional) 

I put this A7 in here because as you'll see on the chord sheet, this could also be a A chord instead.

This has a downstroke rhythm pattern using either a 1-2-3-4 with accents on the 1st and 4th beat quickly followed by a quick riff pattern as explained in the lesson below. And that riff is during all three chords.

There isn't any lead work to be concerned about in this one so focusing on just the rhythm and the riff and singing should make this a fairly easy one to learn for most.

Cry To Me Lyrics

When your baby - leaves you all alone
And nobody - calls you on the phone
Doncha feel like crying - Doncha feel like crying
Well here I am my honey - c'mon - cry to me

When you're all alone - in your lonely room
And there's nothing - but the smell of her perfume
Doncha feel like crying - Doncha feel like crying
Doncha feel like crying - C'mon baby, (c'mon) cry to me

Nothing could be sadder - than a glass of wine - alone
Loneliness loneliness - it just a waste of your time - oh yeah
You don't ever - have to walk alone - oh ya see
Come take my hand and baby won't you walk with me? whoa yeah

When you're waiting - for a voice to come
In the night - but there is no one
Doncha feel like crying (cry to me) - Doncha feel like crying (cry to me)
Don't you feel like cr-cr-cr-cr-cr-cr-cry- yeah - (cry to me)

Don't you feel like cr-cr-cr-cr-cr-cr-crying? (cry to me)
Whoa ----- Whoa ----- Ohhhh Cry to me - oh yeah
