[Verse 1]
Hear that lonesome whippoorwill?
He sounds too blue to fly
The midnight train is whining low

I'm so lonesome I could cry

[Verse 2]
I've never seen 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 begin to die?
That means he's lost his will to live


[Verse 3]
The silence of a falling star
Lights up a purple sky
And as I wonder where you are
