Skeeter Davis — I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry 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 it's 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.

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...
