10/22/13 - NNHS Newsletter - I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry

We are lonesome animals. We spend all our life trying to be less lonesome.
One of our ancient methods is to tell a story begging the listener to say -- and to feel --
'Yes, that's the way it is, or at least that's the way I feel it. You're not as alone as you thought.''”

- John Steinbeck
(27 Feb 1902 - 20 Dec 1968)

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


From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/I%27m_So_Lonesome_I_Could_Cry

"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.

Rolling Stone ranked it #111 on their list of the 500 Greatest Songs of All Time. It's the second oldest song on the list, and one of only two from the 1940s.

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.
