Don't Cry

Words & Music:

Izzy Stradlin' & W. Axl Rose (Guns N' Roses)


This is fully transcribed in Guitar World.


Am           Dm           G                  C   G/B

Talk to me softly.  There's something in your eyes.

Am                Dm           G                C  G/B  [etc.]

Don't hang your head in sorrow and please don't cry.

I know how you feel inside I've been there before.

Somethin's changin' inside you and Don't you know.



F         G          Am

Don't you cry tonight.  I still love you, baby.

F         G          Am

Don't you cry tonight.

F         G           C       C/B      Am        G

Don't you cry tonight.  There's a heaven above you, baby.

F             G           Am

And don't you cry tonight.


Give me a whisper.  And give me a sigh.

Give me a kiss before you tell me goodbye.

Don't you take it so hard, now, and please don't take it so bad.

I'll still be thinkin' of you and the times we had, baby.




And please remember that I never lied.

And please remember how I felt inside now, honey.

You gotta make it your own way.  But you'll be alright now, sugar.

You'll feel better tomorrow.  Come the morning light now, baby.
