I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry Lyrics

by American Idol

Did you 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 the will to live
I'm so lonesome, I could cry

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