are lonesome animals. We spend all our life trying to be less lonesome.
Dear Friends and Schoolmates,
It's hard to believe I've never used this sad old song from 1949 before; you know how much I love sad old songs.
BONUS - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WkztDzpTHKA - I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry - Hank Williams, 1949
|"I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry" is a song written and recorded by American country music singer-songwriter Hank Williams in 1949. The song about loneliness was largely inspired by his troubled relationship with wife Audrey Sheppard. With evocative lyrics, such as the opening lines "Hear that lonesome whip-poor-will/He sounds too blue to fly," the song has been covered by a wide range of musicians.|

I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry
Written and recorded by Hank Williams (17 Sept 1923 – 01 Jan 1953), 1949
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 see a robin weep,
When leaves began to die?
That means 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.
