Hear that lonesome whippoorwill
He sounds too blue to fly
That old midnight train oh, she's whinin' low
I'm so lonesome I think I'm gonna cry
Did you ever see the night so long
When time goes crawlin' by?
That old moon it just went behind the cloud
To hide it's face, hey and cry
Did you ever, ever see the robin weep
You know when leaves begin to die?
Well, that means he's lost the will to live
I'm gettin' so lonesome I, I-hi could cry
You know the old silence of an old fallin' star
Old Hank Williams said, 'It lights up a purple sky'
Hey woman, as I wonder where you are
Jerry Lee's so lonesome I think I'm gonna cry
