​I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry

This song is by Cassandra Wilson and appears on the album New Moon Daughter (1995).

This song is a cover of "I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry" by ​Hank Williams.
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 hear a robin weep
When leaves began to die
That mean 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.
