Lonesome Whistle

Hank Williams

 D
I was  ridin' number nine
 GD
Headin'  south from Caro- line
 A7D
I Heard That Lone- some Whistle  Blow
Got in trouble had to roam
 GD
Left my  gal and left my  home
 A7D
I Heard That Lone- some Whistle  Blow.

1st Refrain
 G
Just a  kid actin' smart
 D
I went and  broke my darlin's heart
 A7
I guess I was too young to  know
 D
They took me  off the Georgia Main
 GD
Locked me  to a ball and  chain
 A7D
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.
