I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry

Hank Williams
As recorded by Cowboy Junkies

3/4 time

[E] Hear that lonesome whippoorwill,
he sounds too blue to fly [E7]
The [A] midnight train is [E] whining low,
I'm so lonesome [B7] I could [E] cry

I've never seen a night so long,
when time keeps crawling [E7] by
The [A] moon has gone be- [E] hind a cloud,
to hide his [B7] face and [E] cry

Have you [E] ever seen a robin weep,
when leaves have turned to brown [E7]
Like [A] me he's lost his [E] will to live,
I'm so lonesome [B7] I could [E] cry

The silence of a falling star,
lights up a purple haze [E7]
And [A] as I wonder [E] where you are,
I'm so lonesome [B7] I could cry [E]
