I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry

"I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry" er en countrysang der oprindeligt blevet skrevet og indspillet af den amerikanske singer-songwriter Hank Williams i 1949. Williams skrev sangen med planen om at teksten skulle siges frem for at synges,[2] som han havde gjort på flere af sin indspilninger med Luke the Drifter. Sangen, der handler om ensomhed, blev inspireret af hans problematiske forhold til sin kone Audrey Sheppard. Sangen er siden blevet indspillet i coverversioner af utallige kunstnere heriblandt af Johnny Cash, Little Richard, Bob Dylan, Roy Robinson, Me First and the Gimme Gimmes og Volbeat. Under sin Aloha From Hawaii TV-special introducerede Elvis Presley sangen ved at sige, "I'd like to sing a song that's...probably the saddest song I've ever heard."
