I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry

Bill Monroe, Tony Ellis, Owen Bradley, Bessie Lee Mauldin, Culley Holt, Franklin G. Buchanan, Red Stanley

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 mean's 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
