"Crying" is a rock and roll ballad written by Roy Orbison and Joe Melson and sung by Orbison. 

The song was released as a 45rpm single by Monument Records in July 1961 and made No.1 on the United States Cashbox chart for a week on 7th October 1961, although it peaked at No. 2 on the rival Billboard Hot 100. 

In 1987, Orbison rerecorded the song as a duet with k.d. lang as part of the soundtrack for the motion picture, Hiding Out. Their collaboration won the Grammy Award for Best Country Collaboration with Vocals. The duet version was a minor US chart hit for the two, peaking at #42 on the Hot Country Singles chart, though it was a more substantial hit in the UK in 1992, reaching No. 7 on the UK Singles Chart.
