One thought on “I’m So Lonesome I Could Cry

  1. It’s beautiful, yes, and so deeply American, the “so lonesome…” Readers might take a look at the only, not-so-hefty, readable book yet to explore the sense of open-ended “otherness” in “lonesome.” Only American speakers of the language have it. Look at LONESOME: THE SPIRITUAL MEANINGS OF AMERICAN SOLITUDE (IBTauris in the UK; Palgrave Macmillan in the US) It’s on Amazon.
