Toby Keith - Cryin' For Me (Wayman's Song)

Toby Keith song, "Cryin' For Me," a tribute to the late Wayman Tisdale. It's really a beautiful song and the video is terrific. Tobey Keith ft. Dave Koz, Marcus Miller and Arthur Thompson - which begins with the outgoing message from Tisdale's answering machine.

Makes us miss Wayman even more. Take a look below.

"Cryin for Me"
Got the news on Friday morning
But a tear I couldn't find
You showed me how I am supposed to live
Now you showed me how to die
I was lost til Sunday morning
I woke up to face my fear
While writing you this goodbye
song I found a tear

I'm going to miss that smile
I'm going to miss you my friend
Even though it hurts the way it ended up
I'd do it all again

So play it sweet in heaven
Cause that's right where you want to be
I'm not cryin cause I feel so sorry for you
I am cryin for me

I got up and dialed your number
Your voice came on the line
That old familiar message
I've heard a thousand times
It just said, sorry that I missed you
Leave a message and God bless
I know that you think I am crazy
But I just had to hear your voice I guess

I'm going to miss that smile
I'm going to miss you my friend
Even though it hurts the way it ended up
I'd do it all again

So play it sweet in heaven
Cause that's right where you want to be
I'm not cryin cause I feel so sorry for you
I am cryin for me Oh

So play your upsidedown, left handed
Backward bass guitar
I'll see you on the other side superstar

I'm going to miss that smile
I'm going to miss you my friend
Even though it hurts the way it ended up
I'd do it all again

So play it sweet in heaven
Cause that's right where you want to be
I'm not cryin cause I feel so sorry for you
I am cryin for me

I'm still cryin
I'm cryin for me Oh
I'm still cryin



Wayman Lawrence Tisdale (June 9, 1964 – May 15, 2009) was an American professional basketball player in the NBA and a smooth jazz bass guitarist. A three-time All American at the University of Oklahoma, he was elected to the National Collegiate Basketball Hall of Fame in 2009.
Tisdale called music his "first love". Throughout his youth, continuing through his college basketball career, he played bass guitar at his father's church.
Tisdale died on the morning of May 15, 2009 at St. John Medical Center in Tulsa, where his wife had taken him when he had trouble breathing. Tisdale's agent described his death as a "great shock" and noted that Tisdale had been planning to go into the recording studio the following week for a project with jazz guitarist Norman Brown. As yet, it is unconfirmed whether his death was related to his battle with cancer. Tisdale and his wife Regina had four children.

Wayman Tisdale was an great bassist, Bball player, But most of all an awesome man of Faith, Father, Husband, Son and Friend.
Much Lov,
