Bumbastories salutes Hank Williams again.

I’m So Lonesome I Could Cry, written by Hank Williams in 1949 is one of Hank’s most poetic and beautiful lyrics, and was one of his greatest songs.

Hear that lonesome whipp-o-will

He sounds too blue to fly

The midnight train is whining low

I’m so lonesome I could cry

Sung here by Preston Maybank, with background harmonica by Bumba, it is a song that touches something soulful and sentimental.

I’ve never seen a night so long

When time goes crawlin’ by

The moon just went behind the clouds

To hide its face and cry

Did you ever see a robin weep?

When leaves begin to die?

Like me 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
