John Martyn chords for Cry me a river

Chords with lyrics

Chord Sequences:


[Note: Experiment with minor 11 (no 5th) chords rather than simple minor or minor 7ths
in the below sequence.
Take the minor 7 flat 6th with pinch of salt..but it would be easy to do in dadgad
(which I tried as well as the proper tuning).
Also could try (rather than m7b6 chord in sequence 2),  an Esus9 chord..I am not too
sure of all the subtle tonalities here
but its essentially Chord diagramE minorEm for a few bars. ]

 Sequence 1:
Now you say you love me
Chord diagramC minorCm
But you cry the whole night through
Chord diagramF minorFm                   Chord diagramG minorGm
You can cry me a river
............Cm........Fm        Chord diagramG minorGm
Oh yes you're going' to cry me a river
                                Chord diagramC minorCm        Chord diagramF minorFm    Chord diagramG minorGm
Cos I cried a river over you.
Chord diagramG minorGm                            Chord diagramC minorCm

repeat seq 1 for:
Now you say you're sorry for being so untrue
You may cry a river
You may cry me a river
I cried a river over you
Yes I did child, yes I did my child.


Sequence 2:
You drove me nearly out of my head
Em7b6
You stood by and never shed a tear
Em7b6
But I remember every word that was said
Chord diagramE minor 7Em7
......Oh yes, I remember, never fear.
Chord diagramDm7Dm7
repeat seq 1 for:

You may cry me a river, c'mon now
Cry me a river
You may cry me a river
I cried a river for you oh how I cried.

repeat seq 2 for:
You nearly drove me out of my own sweet head
You stood by, you never shed a tear for me.
I remember every cruel word, everything that was said
Yes I remember, never you fear.

repeat seq1 for:
You may cry me a river
I cried a river for you
Yes I cried a river for you.
Turn back the tide of life, I cried, salty water running down
I cried I love you
I cried I love you
I cried, I cried.

and continue seq 1 (Chord diagramC minorCm to Chord diagramF minorFm to Chord diagramG minorGm sequences) where it fits for :
You may cry, oh, she may cry now, a river of tears
Chord diagramA augmentedA river of tears for you
You may cry now, she may cry, oh, she may cry now
You may cry, oh, she may cry now a river of tears
Chord diagramA augmentedA river of tears for you.
I cry you can cry me a river
Lord loves a cheerful giver
C'mon and cry me a river of tears
C'mon now and cry me a river of tears
C'mon now and cry me a river of tears
C'mon now, c'mon down and cry me a river.
