I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry
performed by:
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 began to die?
That means 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 where you are
I'm so lonesome I could cry




I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry
performed by:
Elvis presley



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

I'm so lonesome I could cry
