Crying Like A Steel Guitar
well she was keeping company with nobody
alone again tonight in a crowded bar
regretting her last love affair
and she's been crying like a steel guitar

And all his words came back to haunt her
I love you's ringing in her ears
empty words is thast all they are
but something deep inside keeps tugging at her heart
so she keeps wishing on every falling star

and she's been crying like a steel guitar

She was catching her tears in every glass of beer
one tear for every time her heart was broke
and when her glass is full
she searches for her soul
and she takes her regrets home

and she's still crying like a steel guitar
