Rest in peace, Louie

For Katie, who adored and loved him and gave him a wonderful life.

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 mean’s he’s lost his 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

[UPDATED:  Just to clear up any confusion, I did not write this.  This song, “I’m so Lonesome I Could Cry,” was written in 1949 by Hank Williams. ]
