Vince gill Songs | Vince Gill's Heartbreaking Rendition of Hank Williams' 'I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry' (WATCH) | Country Music Videos

During Grand Ole Opry 75th: A Celebration, Vince Gill took the stage to perform country legend Hank Williams' classic song, "I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry".

"I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry" was both written and recorded by Williams in 1949. The song was said to be inspired by the troubled relationship between him and his wife. The song has been covered dozens and dozens of times, some notable versions are by Johnny Cash, Dean Martin, Bob Dylan, Elvis Presley, and Al Green. It has charted several times as well.

Gill's rendition was phenomenal to say the least. Though no one can croon this sad song like Hank, Vince's performance was emotional, making his audience feel the sadness that the song represented. 


Hear that lonesome whippoorwill,
He sounds too blue to fly.
The midnight train is whining low,
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 the clouds
To hide its 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.
