"Come Cryin' to Me" is a song recorded by American country music group Lonestar and it was released in April 1997 as the first single from their second studio album Crazy Nights. The song reached the top of the Billboard Hot Country Singles & Tracks chart. The song was the band's second Number One hit, as well as the first single of their career to be co-written by then-member John Rich, who later left the band in 1998 to pursue a solo career. It was written by Rich with Wally Wilson and Mark D. Sanders. [1]


The song is about a man who falls in love with a woman that she can come to him when she was crying, and she was hurting more and more these days. She doesn't have to hide it, and she doesn't have to fight it, but all she has to do is just turn and walk away.
