From beginning to end, Cry Like A Baby, is a top shelf 60's pop album. Alex Chilton had a world weary voice as a teenager and it lends a lot of integrity to songs such as "Cry Like A Baby", "Deep In Kentucky", and "Good Morning Dear". The songs are definitely American and you can hear some of the midwestern S. ouis/Memphis sound coming through, but just under that is a hint of the British Invasion sound that was popular at the time. You Keep Tightening Up on Me" is great Box Tops pop, with more of that "Cry Like a Baby" electric sitar snaking through it, and great 60s keyboard sounds and licks.

Rolling Stone magazine included the Box Tops original at number 372 on its list of the "500 Greatest Songs of All Time"; the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame added it to the list of the "500 Songs That Shaped Rock and Roll" Contents. 1968 – The Tams recorded this song for the album A Little More Soul. 1969 – Al Green recorded this song on his album Green Is Blues. 1970 – The Wailers recorded this as a single release. 1974 – Bojoura, a Dutch singer (Rajna Gerardina Cleuver van Melzen) recorded a studio version. He sang on a re-recording of the Box Tops' "Cry Like a Baby" at the same time

Am You gave me I cry like a baby C Am Living without you is driving me crazy C I cry like a baby. You're not a plaything G F C Not a toy or a puppet on a string. E. C As I look back on a love so sweet now Am I cry like a baby C Every road is a lonely street Am I cry like a baby.
