This slow and rhythmically played song, Cry Me A River was written in 1953 by Arthur Hamilton.  It is track #3 on the album, The Look Of Love. I love this popular song and enjoy playing it because it has lots of 7th and 13th chords. I found a cool site for the chords & lyrics to Cry Me A River by Diana Krall, as well as the guitar tabs online. Here's the chord progressions to this beautiful, jazzy song from The Best of Diana Krall songbook.
