Let her Cry - Hootie & The Blowfish
                [cbarted by Rick Scbofield (] 

v1) G D
She sits alone by a lampo-ost
        [C]Trying to find a thought that's escaped her [G]mind
        [G]She says there's the one I love [D]the most
        [C]his type's not far b[G]ehind
        [G]She never lets me in    [D]only tells me where she's been
        [C]when she's had to much to [G]drink
        [G]I say that I don't care   I just [D]run my hands through her dark hair
        [C]then I pray to God, "You gotta help me fly [G]away"   (and just)
        let her [C]cry     if the [G]tears fall down like rain
        let her [C]sing    If it [Em]eases all her [D]pain
        let her [C]go      let her [G]walk right out on me
        and if the [D]sun comes up tomorrow,
        let her [C]be,   let her [G]be
        [G] [4 barsD] solo[C]] [G]
verse 2
This morning I woke up alone found a note standing by the phone
saying "maybe, maybe I'll be back someday"
I wanted to look for you
you walked in, I didn't know just what I should do
So, I sat back down, had a beer and felt sorry for myself
        [solo - 8 bars over verse] 
verse 3
last night I tried to leave
cried so much I could not beleive
she was the same girl I fell in love with long ago
she went in the back to get high
I sat down on my couch and cried yelling
"Whoa Lord whoa, please help me. Won't you hold my hand"
        [cborus - ends differently as....] 
        and if the [D]sun comes up tomorrow, let her [G]be
