This is a super-easy, pared down version. I find the original Hootie version to be too 
to do acoustically and without a lead guitar. It's also a different key than the 
It suits my female voice much better.

Let Her Cry

Intro: C, G, F, C, G

C                       G
She sits alone by a lamppost
F                                             C
trying to find a thought that's escaped her mind
C                         G
She says Dad's the one I love the most
F                       C
but Stipe's not far behind
C
She lets me in
G
only tell me where's she's been
F                            C
when she's had too much to drink
C                               G
I say that I don't care I just run my hands
                             F
through her dark hair and I pray to God
                     C
you gotta help me fly away

                 F          C
And just let her cry if the tears fall down like rain
        F          Am            G
Let her sing if it eases all her pain
        F           C
Let her go. Let her walk right out on me
           G
And if the sun comes up tomorrow
         F          C
Let her be, let her be.

C
This morning I woke up alone
G
found a note by the phone
F                     C
saying maybe I'll be back some day
C
I wanted to look for you
           G
You walked in I didn't know just what to do
     F                                 C
so I sat back down had a beer and felt sorry for myself.

                F          C
Saying let her cry if the tears fall down like rain
        F          Am            G
Let her sing if it eases all her pain
        F            C
Let her go. Let her walk right out on me
           G
And if the sun comes up tomorrow
        F           C
Let her be, let her be.

C
Last nite I tried to leave
G
She cried so much I just could not believe
F                                         C
she was the same girl I fell in love with long ago
C
She went in the back to get high
G
I sat down on my couch and cried
        F
yelling oh mama please help me
         C
won't you hold my hand.

            F           C
And let her cry if the tears fall down like rain
        F          Am            G
Let her sing if it eases all her pain
        F           C
Let her go. Let her walk right out on me
           G
And if the sun comes up tomorrow
        C
Let her be
        F          C
Let her cry if the tears fall down like rain
        F         Am             G
Let her sing if it eases all her pain
        F           C
Let her go. Let her walk right out on me
           G
And if the sun comes up tomorrow
        F            C
Let her be, let her be.

Outro: C, G, F, C

Good alternate with added intro and outro, nice one!
-You could also use the original chords (played in G) and play capo on 5th to get this sound too, well done though.
-Interlude and solo chords missing. 4*

Yes. The interlude and solo are missing. Hence, the 'pared down version' statement.
