I'm so lonesome

One of my favorite Hank Williams songs is entitled, "I'm so lonesome I could cry."
It's a hauntingly beautiful song.
Below are the 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 the clouds
To hide its face and cry

Did you ever see a robin weep
When leaves begin to die?
Like me, 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

May you never be this lonesome.


  1. As you say: "It's a hauntingly beautiful song." yep. You picked a beautiful picture to go along with hanks feelings...
    I have always liked the song, especially at a time of personal misery.. It seemed to fit..

  2. That song is beautifully sad.

    Yes, the song is sad, but your purple sky is gorgeous!!

  4. Morning, I think the evenings can bring along a sad feeling sometimes. That is just what Hank was singing about! But I think I feel a new lease on life every morning.
    I do think maybe the Robins might cry to see the leaves fall off the trees!
    Hey, I took a bunch of Barn photos while on vacation this summer and I hope to do a post on them soon. I think I would like to let you know when I get it finished, I want to share them with you

  5. I remember that old song and many more.... Of course, I had to go check Hank Williams biography and was surprised to learn that he dies of a heart attack at 29. He sure was a great song writer. His lyrics reflected his life.

  6. I love that song. It brings back memories of my Dad.

  7. Beautiful lyrics...beautiful picture to compliment them!
