Who’s A Weepin’ For The Weeper (When The Weeper is a-Weepin’)

[html5mp3full:6636]

When trouble comes a-knockin’ at your door
And the blues have come to stay
She’s there to give you comfort and more
She knows the right words to say

But if she needs you
What will you do
Dry her tears or run away?

CHORUS

Who’s a-weepin’
For the weeper
When the weeper’s a-weepin’?

Though she ain’t rich she’ll give you her last dime
Or her coat on a wintery night
To leave you sad or hungry’s a crime
She was raised to do what’s right

But if she needs you
What will you do
Turn your back or hold her tight?

CHORUS

Who’s a-weepin’
For the weeper
When the weeper’s a-weepin’?

But if she needs you
What will you do
Take her hand or say goodnight?

CHORUS

Who’s a-weepin’
For the weeper
Who’s a-weepin’
For the weeper
When the weeper’s a-weepin’?
