Drown in My Own Tears
Aretha Franklin Lyrics


It brings big tears
Into my eyes
When I began
When I began to realize
That I've cried so much
Oh, since you've been gone
I guess I'll drown in
Drown in my own tears
I've been crying
Just like a child
These tears of mine
These tears are running wild
And if you don't think
If you don't think that you'll be home soon
Baby, I'm going to drown, oh yeah, in my own tears

Here without you (you)
I get so lonely and I sure get blue (blue), yes, I do
It seems to keep rainin' (rainin')
Rainin', and raining more and more (more and more)
Oh, here without you, baby,
I sure get lonely and I get so blue,
And every time I look around, it's rainin'
More, and more, and more, and more, and more

Oh, why can't you? (you) Why can't you
Why can't you come on home? (You come on home)
Because I don't wanna be, I don't want to be here all alone
Listen, if you don't think (If you don't)
If you don't think that you're coming home soon (You don't think),
Like this evening,
I believe I'm gonna drown (drown) this morning
I tell you that I'm gonna (drown) gonna drown this evening
And oh! (drown) It's sure gonna get bad in the midnight hour
Don't let him let me, (drown) Don't let him let me
Don't let him let me, Don't let him let me
Drown (goin' down), in my own tears
I don't wanna drown (drown) in my own tears
Oh, I'm gonna drown, yeah, in my
Oh, in my own tears, tears, my tears, tears
Oh, don't let him do it, don't let him do it
I don't wanna drown in my own tears

It brings a tear into my eyes
When I begin to realize
I've cried so much since you've been gone
I guess I'll drown in my own tears

I sit and cry just like a child
My pouring tears are runnin' wild
If you don't think you'll be home soon
I guess I'll drown, oh yes, in my own tears

I know it's true, mm hmm, into each life
Oh, some rain, rain must pour
I'm so blue here without you
It keeps a-raining more and more

Why can't you come on home?
Oh yes so I won't be all alone
If you don't think you'll be home soon

I guess I'll (drown in my own tears)
Oh, don't let me (drown in my own tears)
When I'm in trouble, baby (drown in my own tears)
Oh let me in, don't let me (drown in my own tears)
I guess I'll drown in my own tears
Woh, mmmmm

RIP. You can be any genre as hardcore as much as you like, but if you don't like this you don't know music. Period.

One of my all-time favorites by Aretha! Cissy, Erma, and Carolyn are serving up some "Caravans" realness in the background! Y'all Betta sing!

Eric King

@John Lewis Partially correct, That's Aretha's two sisters, Erma and Carolyn with Cissy Houston, formerly of the Sweet Inspirations.

Rohan Bennett

Janet Boggs

DaOrigTruthSeeker

I don't care how many people cover this in the future.....nobody messing with this like Aretha. She owned this joint and sung the brakes off this piece.

Alex Atkinson

Johnny Winter does an amazing cover of this song also
