(Hank Williams)

Hear that lonesome whippoorwill
He sounds too blue to fly
The midnight train is whining low
I'm so lonesome I could cry.

I've never seen a night so long
When time goes crawling by
The moon just went behind the clouds
To hide its face and cry.

--- Instrumental ---

Did you ever see a robin weep
When leaves begin to die
That mean's he's lost the will to live
I'm so lonesome I could cry.

--- Instrumental ---

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