Charley Pride – A Shoulder To Cry On Lyrics

I came here because I knew I’d be welcome
And because somehow you always understand
You seem to have a way with lonely people
And you always were my greatest helping hand
Now once again I’m here to take advantage
Though I don’t deserve the arms I left alone
I need to know there’s someone who still loves me and I need a shoulder to cry on
I overlooked the love you tried so hard to give the love I never seemed to understand
I always stay just long enough to hurt you and what little love I gave was second hand
Now once again I’m here to take advantage cause once again I love is gone
I need to know there’s someone who still loves me and I need a shoulder to cry on
Yes I need to know there’s someone who still loves me and I need a shoulder to cry on
