The Last Word in Lonesome Is Me

Country singer Sammi Smith's first and biggest hit was Help Me Make It Through the Night. In her lesser-known song, The Last Word in Lonesome is Me, the word trick with lonesome amuses me. Plus you just can't beat the twang in her voice.

Songs like this were what we listened to where I grew up. The only radio station we could bring in was WWVA (as in Wheeling, West Virgina) "Big Country." When a song from back then, back there, comes into my head, I can still remember all the words and sing it in tune.
