Such Longing I Could Die

After I’m so Lonesome I Could Cry by Hank Williams, Sr.

 

Did you ever see that smile of His,

That twinkling in His eye?

It’s left me in the state I’m in

With such longing I could die.

 

I’ve never seen a night so long

With time just crawling by.

The moon has gone behind a cloud

To hide its face and cry.

 

Did you ever see a lover weep

When his Beloved leaves his side?

That means he’s lost the will to live.

I’ve got such longing I could die.

 

The silence of His indifference

Screams inside my mind,

But it makes me think of only Him

With such longing I could die

With such longing I could die.
