I'm so Lonesome I Could Cry
Johnny Cash 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 a cloud,
To hide its face and cry.
Did you ever see a Robin weep,
When leaves begin to die?
That means he's lost his 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.
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 begin to die?
That means he's lost his will to live.
I'm so lonesome I could cry.

[Instrumental break]

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.
I'm so lonesome I could cry.

My dog is passing and I started listening to this song. This is how I feel right now

Pets become like a member of the family, it's upsetting that most pets (except parrots, those evil fuckers live forever) don't last as long as human beings, but that's the way of the world I guess. Sorry for your loss.

my yellow lab Sophie was gone 4 years on Aug. 12th , I haven't been happy since ....... it's a brutal thing to do to a human , let them fall in love with a dog and then lose it ....

The other singer is Nick Cave, has an awesome voice. This to me is the best cover of a legendary song.
