Oh Lonesome Me is the name of a country music album by singer Don Gibson, released in 1958. It is an example of the beginning of the Nashville Sound.

The title song reached the Top 10 and also topped the country chart. Its B-side was "I Can't Stop Loving You" which became a standard song for unrequited love.[2]

The title song has been covered many times, most notably by Neil Young as part of the 1970 LP, After the Goldrush. M. Ward and Lucinda Williams performed it in 2009 for Hold Time.
