Hank Williams I Heard That Lonesome Whistle Blow Lyrics

Last updated: 04/23/2014 04:15:10 AM

I was ridin' #9,
Heading South from Caroline.
I heard that lonesome whistle blow.
Got in trouble, had to roam,
I 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 blow.
All I do is sit and cry,
When that evening train goes by.
I heard that lonesome blow.

I'll be locked here in this cell,
'Till my body's just a shell;
And my hair turns whiter than snow.
I'll never see that gal of mine,
I'm in Georgia doing time.
I heard that lonesome whistle blow.
