I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry

Hear the lonesome whippoorwill
His song's too blue to fly
The midnight train is a-winding low
I'm so lonesome I could cry

I've never seen a night so long
When time keeps crawling by
The moon is gone behind the clouds
To hide his face and cry

Have you ever seen a robin weep
When leaves have turned to brown?
Like me he's lost his will to live
I'm so lonesome I could cry

The silence of a falling star
Lights up a purple haze
And as I wonder where you are
I'm so lonesome I could cry
songwriter: Hank Williams

performed by: The Cowboy Junkies

date released: 1988 by The Cowboy Junkies

Cowboy Junkies are an alternative rock/country/blues band which hails from Toronto, Canada. The group was formed in 1985 by Michael, Margo and Peter Timmins (all siblings) and Alan Anton. The Timmins siblings are descendants of Noah Timmins, the mining prospector for whom the town, Timmins, Ontario, was named. Another sister of this talented family was Cali Timmins who began an actress starring in the production, "Ryan's Hope".

After an unauspicious start, the band received critical attention with their second album, "The Trinity Session", which was recorded in 1987 in the Church of the Holy Trinity in downtown Toronto.
