Lonesome whistle Lyrics by Hank Snow 



Lonesome whistle by Hank Snow


I was ridin' Number Nine

Headin' south from Caroline

I heard that lonesome whistle blow

Got in trouble had to roam

Left my gal and left my home

I heard that lonesome whistle blow


Just a kid actin' smart

I went and broke my darlin's heart

I guess I was too young to know

They took me off the Georgia Main

Locked me to a ball and chain

I heard that lonesome whistle blow


All alone I bear the shame

I'm a number not a name

I heard that lonesome whistle blow

All I do is sit and cry

When the ev'ning train goes by

I heard that lonesome whistle blow


I'll be locked here in this cell

'Til my body's just a shell

And my hair turns whiter than the snow

I'll never see that gal of mine

Lord, I'm in Georgia, doin' time

I heard that lonesome whistle blow
