Got the news on Friday mornin’
But a tear I couldn’t find
You showed me how I’m supposed to live
And now you showed me how to die

I was lost till Sunday morning
I work up to face my fear
While writing you this goodbye song
I found a tear

I’m gonna miss that smile
I’m gonna miss you my friend
Even though it hurts the way it ended up
I’d do it all again
So play it sweet in heaven
‘Cause That’s right where you want to be
I’m not cryin’ cause I feel so sorry for you
I’m cryin’ for me

I got up and dialed your number
And your voice came on the line
With that old familiar message
I’d heard a thousand times it just said
Sorry that I missed you
Leave a message and god bless
I know you think I’m crazy
But I had to hear your voice again

I’m gonna miss that smile
I’m gonna miss you my friend
Even though it hurts the way it ended up
I’d do it all again
So play it sweet in heaven
‘Cause That’s right where you want to be
I’m not cryin’ cause I feel so sorry for you
I’m cryin’ for me

I’m still cryin’
I’m cryin’ for me
I’m still cryin’

— Toby Keith, Cryin’ For Me
