I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry
(Hank Williams)

Hear the lonesome whippoorwill
His song's too blue to fly.
The midnight train is winding low.
I'm so lonesome I could cry.

I've never seen a night so long
When time keeps crawling by
The moon is gone behind the clouds
To hide his face and cry.

Have you ever seen a robin weep
When leaves have turned to brown?
Like me he's lost his will to live
I'm so lonesome I could cry.

The silence of a falling star
Lights up a purple haze
and as I wonder where you are
I'm so lonesome I could cry.
