I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry ~ Four Chord Song

I’m So Lonesome I Could Cry
written and recorded by Hank Williams    [3/4 time

Hear that lonesome whippoorwill
He sounds too blue to fly
    G                 D
The midnight train is whining low
                A7      D
I'm so lonesome I could cry

I've never seen a night so long
When time goes crawling by
    G                D
The moon just went behind a cloud
            A7       D
To hide its face and cry

Did you ever see a robin weep
When leaves begin to die
     G                   D
That means he's lost the will to live
                A7      D
I'm so lonesome I could cry

The silence of a falling star
Lights up a purple sky
    G           D
And as I wonder where you are
                A7      D
I'm so lonesome I could cry

"Keeping A Song In My Heart" 

 Have A Great Day! 


  1. Old Hank could really bring bring out the sad sound with this one. I'm sure I can bring out tears from people when I sing it but probably for different reasons.

    1. I like your humor. Keep enjoying life . . . strumming, singing, and laughing at yourself. That sounds like a healthy way to live, don't you think? Have a good day and thanks for stopping by, Connie :)
