i’ll drown in my own tears lyrics – janis joplin

he brings a tear into my eyes
when i begin, lord, to realize.
if you don’t think that, honey, you’ll be lonesome,
you know i’ll drown, drown, oh lord, in my own tears.

i know it’s true into his mind
a little rain is bound to fall
but since you been gone honey i’m so blue,
it just keeps rainin’, keeps right on rainin’ more and more.

i didn’t cry just like a child,
my poor tears, lord, they were runnin’ wild.
if you don’t think that baby you’ll be home soon now
you know i’ll drown, drown, oh lord in my own tears.
