Willie Nelson

Willie Hugh Nelson (pronounced /wɪli nɛlsən /; born April 30, 1933) is an American country music singer-songwriter, as well as an author, poet, actor, and activist. The critical success of the album Shotgun Willie (1973), combined with the critical and commercial success of Red Headed Stranger (1975) and Stardust (1978), made Nelson one of the most recognized artists in country music. He was one of the main figures of outlaw country, a subgenre of country music that developed at the end of the 1960s as a reaction to the conservative restrictions of the Nashville sound. Nelson has acted in over 30 films, co-authored several books, and has been involved in activism for the use of biofuels and the legalization of marijuana. more »

Hear that lonesome whippoorwill 
He sounds too blue to fly
That means he's lost the will to live 
I'm so lonesome I could cry
Did you ever see a night so slow 
As time goes draggin' by
The moon just went behind the clouds 

To hide its face and 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
I'm so lonesome I could cry 
I'm so lonesome I could cry
