Intro: E B7 E

E
Hear the lonesome whippoorwill
                         E7
He sounds too blue to fly
    A                 E
The midnight train is whining low
                B7      E
I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry


  E
I never seen a night so long
                           E7
When times goes crawling by
    A                E
The moon just went behind a cloud
             B7       E   E7
To hide it's face and cry

Interlude: E E7 A E B7 E  E7


        E
Did you ever see a robin weep
                         E7
When leaves began to die?
     A
Like me he's lost the will to live
                B7      E   E7
I'm so lonesome I could cry

Interlude: E E7 A E B7 E  E7


    E
The silence of a falling star
                      E7
Lights up a purple sky
    A           E
And as I wonder where you are
                B7      E   
I'm so lonesome I could cry
