10/22/20 - 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,

   OOOH, a nice sad old song from 1949; you know how much I love sad old songs.  

BONUS - 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.

 From My Niece, Shari, of VA - 10/20/20, 10:36 PM - "The Train":

            A reminder........

THE TRAIN:
 
At birth we boarded the train and met our parents, and we believe they will always travel by our side. As time goes by, other people will board the train; and they will be significant i.e. our siblings, friends, children, strangers and even the love of your life. However, at some station our parents will step down from the train, leaving us on this journey alone. Others will step down over time and leave a permanent vacuum. Some, however, will go so unnoticed that we don't realize they vacated their seats. This train ride will be full of joy, sorrow, fantasy, expectations, hellos, goodbyes, and farewells. Success consists of having a good relationship with all passengers requiring that we give the best of ourselves.
 
The mystery to everyone is: We do not know at which station we ourselves will step down. So, we must live in the best way, love, forgive, and offer the best of who we are. It is important to do this because when the time comes for us to step down and leave our seat empty we should leave behind beautiful memories for those who will continue to travel on the train of life.
 
I wish you a joyful journey for the coming years on your train of life. Reap success, give lots of love and be happy. More importantly, thank God for the journey!

Lastly, I want to thank you for being one of the passengers on my train!

 
 

   Thank you, Shari - an oldie but goodie!

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.
