Campbell, Glen - I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry Lyrics

Hear that lonesome whippoorwill he sounds too blue to fly
That midnight train is whining low I'm so lonesome I could cry
Did you ever see a night so long when time goes crawling by
The moon just went behind a cloud to hide its face and cry
Did you ever see a robin weep when leaves began to die
It 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

  4. Jane Martin

    A fabulous rendition to one of the best lyrics ever!  This should have millions of thumbs up!

  5. Suzie Chelsea

    Well, actually, the performance I just mentioned DOES exist - it's the 4th song on the Glen Campbell Medley of Country Hits ~ YouTube. They weren't wearing gig duds for that one.

  6. Suzie Chelsea

    That's my brother, Steve Hardin, playing harmonica. He and Glen are at at The Old Ryman Theater in Nashville. Steve's harp tone is the last recorded performance on the original Grand Ole Opry stage. Thanks for asking! He's playing in Heaven now.

    Key of G. Sorry everyone.

  11. C_ Farther

    What harmonica key is this? Gosh, this is so amazing. Glen sang in perfect pitch with many inflections. He was a talent and-a-half--one-in-a-million. No one could make a song sadder than Glen. Thanks for posting this, what a thrill to watch.

  12. Matthew Whitt

    Simply amazing. I love playing this in Steve's style.

    The Harp Player is Steve Hardin who worked during many years with Glen Campbell and many many others among whose Waylon Jennings. He was also a reggae artist and more or less discovered and revealed  the talent of Grechen Wilson.

    This is the single most beautiful thing I have ever heard!

    Take me now, Lord..

  17. peace4theplanet

    Amazing! Glen's soulful voice and Hardin's pleading harmonica bring it home! They are both masters of their trade.

  18. Edythe Edwards

    Glen did an album of Hank Williams music that was great. I wish they would remaster for a CD.

  19. Edythe Edwards

    Glen does Hank Williams better than Hank Williams did.....fantastic!

    glen campbell? Who knew? I had no idea he had such a rich voice. Egads...and i'm not overly fond of country guys too.
