Description:
"I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry" is a song written and recorded by American country music singer-songwriter Hank Williams in 1949. The song about loneliness was largely inspired by his troubled relationship with wife Audrey Sheppard. With evocative lyrics, such as the opening lines "Hear that lonesome whip-poor-will/He sounds too blue to fly," the song has been covered by a wide range of musicians.

Rolling Stone ranked it #111 on their list of the 500 Greatest Songs of All Time. It's the second oldest song on the list, and one of only two from the 1940s.

Cover versions

Among those who have recorded the song following Williams' death include Johnny Cash with Nick Cave, Marty Robbins, Ray Charles, Dean Martin, Al Green, Gary Morris, Stephan Eicher, B. J. Thomas (this version was a U.S. chart hit, peaking at #8), Cassandra Wilson, Dottie West, Diamanda Galás, Freddy Fender, The Raveonettes, The Mountain Goats, The Cowboy Junkies and Atlas Sound.
