I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry
Hank Williams Lyrics


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

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

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 a cloud
To hide its face and cry.
Did you ever see a robin weep
When leaves began to die?
That means he's lost the will to live
I'm so lonesome I could cry.
The silence of a falling star
Lights up a purple sky.
And as I wonder where you are
I'm so lonesome I could cry.

They make multi-million dollar recordings today that can't begin to compare to the heart and soul of this wonderful recorded performance.

Walter Stahl

And they did it before everything. They did it when doing was a lot harder!

Chris Abeita

Heart and soul will never compete with ghost writing and auto tune.... Freedom died when music lost its independant and FREE voice... When a basic human instinct to make noise becomes suppressed,, wtf else do you have??

Ronny Rono

I guess Hank got all his ideas from the stack of comic books he had. No super heroes comics it was true detective kind of stuff. Shows a guy's head toking into the kitchen where is wife is cooking. He says, " Hey good lookin what you got cookin"?

As Mexican men, hearing this song in my younger years I was hit by the poetry this man sang; it hit me hard.

Yo la conocí en los 90's, con una pelicula que pasaban en el canal 5 llamada Los Beverly Ricos. Justo esa escena donde sale la canción era mi escena favorita. Hasta que pasaron los años y llegó el internet, pude buscar la canción. Y desde ese día, no dejo de esucharla... Grande Hank Williams Sr.!!!!

He was the man back in that day I remember him saying if you ain't hurting than you must not be living
