Cash:
Hear that lonesome whippoorwill?
He sounds too blue to fly.
The midnight train is whining low,
I'm so lonesome I could cry.

Cave:
I've never seen a night so long,
When time goes crawlin' by.
The moon just went behind a cloud,
To hide its face and cry.

Cash:
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.

Instrumental break.

Both:
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.
I'm so lonesome I could cry.

1Hank Williams (September 17, 1923 – January 1, 1953) was an American singer-songwriter
and musician who has also become an icon of country music, and was one of the most
influential musicians and songwriters of the 20th century. A leading pioneer of the honky
tonk style, he had numerous hit records, and his charismatic performances and succinct
compositions increased his fame. His songbook is one of the backbones of country music,
and several of his songs are pop standards as well. He has been covered in a range of pop,
gospel, blues and rock styles. His premature death at the age of twenty-nine helped fuel
his legend. His son (Randall) Hank Williams, Jr., nickname 'Bocephus', his daughter Jett
Williams, and his grandchildren Hank Williams III, Holly Williams, and Hilary Williams are
also professional singers.

2Dr. Nicholas Edward Cave (born 22 September 1957) is an Australian musician, singer-songwriter,
author, screenwriter, and occasional actor. He is best known for his work in the rock band
Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, and his fascination with American music and its roots. He has a
reputation, which he disowns, for singing dark, brooding songs which some listeners regard as
depressing. His music is characterised by intensity, high energy and a wide variety of influences.
He currently lives in Brighton & Hove in England. Over the years the pronunciation of his name
has changed dramatically from the original Cav-ay to Cavv to Cave. In a 2008 interview with
Beat Magazine, Cave expressed a desire to return to the original pronunciation.

Johnny Cash biography

Johnny Cash, born February 26, 1932, as J. R. Cash, in Kingsland, Arkansas, to Ray (1897-1985) and Carrie (née Rivers) Cash (1904-1991), and raised in Dyess, Arkansas, was an American singer, songwriter, actor, author, and Biblical scholar, who was one of the most influential musicians of the 20th century. Although he is primarily remembered as a country music artist, his songs and sound spanned many other genres including rockabilly and rock and roll, especially early in his career, as well as blues, folk, and gospel. Late in his career, Cash covered songs by several rock artists.

Cash was known for his deep, distinctive bass-baritone voice, for his demeanor and for his dark clothing, which earned him the nickname, "The Man in Black." He traditionally started his concerts by saying, "Hello, I'm Johnny Cash."

Much of Cash's music, especially that of his later career, echoed themes of sorrow, moral tribulation and redemption......MORE.....(full Johnny Cash biography)
