Waterboys — I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry lyrics

I hear that lonesome whippoorwill
She sounds too blue to fly
The midnight train is whining low
I'm so lonesome I could cry


Did you ever see a night so long
As time goes crawling by
The moon just went behind the clouds
To hang his head and cry


Did you ever see a robin weep
When leaves begin to die
It's 'cause 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
