C C/B Am7 Am7/G Hear that lonesome whippoorwill; C Em Gm7 C7 He sounds too blue to fly.. F Fm C Am The midnight train is whining low G C G7 C G Am7 G/B 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 it's face and cry. Did you ever see a Robin weep When leaves begin 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.
