I’m So Lonesome I Could Cry
written and recorded by Hank Williams

[C] Hear that lonesome whippoorwill

He sounds too blue to [C7]fly

The [F]midnight train is [C]whining low

I’m so lonesome [G7]I could [C]cry


I’ve never seen a night so long

When time goes crawling [C7]by

The [F]moon just went [C]behind a cloud

To hide its [G7]face and [C]cry


Did you ever see a robin weep

When leaves begin to [C7]die

That [F]means he’s lost the [C]will to live

I’m so lonesome [G7]I could [C]cry


The silence of a falling star

Lights up a purple [C7]sky

And [F]as I wonder [C]where you are

I’m so lonesome [G7]I could [C]cry
