"I HEARD THAT LONESOME
WHISTLE BLOW"
Recorded by Hank Williams, Sr.
Written by: Jimmie Davis and Hank Williams, Sr.

I was ridin' number nine
Headin' south from Caro- line
I Heard That Lone- some Whistle Blow
Got in trouble had to roam
Left my gal and left my home
I Heard That Lone- some Whistle Blow.

1st Refrain
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 Lone- some 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'nin' train goes by
I Heard That Lonesome Whistle Blow.

2nd Refrain
I'll be locked here in this cell
Til my body's just a shell
And my hair turns whiter than snow
I'll never see that gal of mine
Lord, I'm in Georgia doin' time
I Heard That Lonesome Whistle Blow.
