Iím So Lonesome I Could Cry --- Hank Williams


[C]Hear the [Em]lonesome [Am]whippoor-[C]will.
He [C]sounds too [Em]blue to [Gm7]fly. [C7]
The [F]midnight [Fm6]train is [C]whining [Am]low.
Iím so [C]lonesome [G7]I could [C]cry.

Iíve [C]never [Em]seen a [Am]night so [C]long,
When [C]time goes [Em]crawling [Gm7]by. [C7]
The [F]moon just [Fm6]went be-[C]hind a [Am]cloud,
To [C]hide its [G7]face and [C]cry.

Did you [C]ever [Em]see a [Am]robin [C]weep,
When [C]leaves be-[Em]gin to [Gm7]die? [C7]
That [F]means heís [Fm6]lost the [C]will to [Am]live.
Iím so [C]lonesome [G7]I could [C]cry.

The [C]silence [Em]of a [Am]falling [C]star
Lights [C]up a [Em]purple [Gm7]sky. [C7]
And [F]as I [Fm6]wonder [C]where you [Am]are,
Iím so [C]lonesome [G7]I could [C]cry.
