Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics


Lonesome Whistle  Hank Williams Jr.

[D]I was ridin' Number Nine,
Headin' [G]south from Caroline[D].
I heard that lone[A7]some whistle blow[D].

Got in trouble, had to roam,
Left my [G]gal an' left my ho[D]me.
I heard that lone[A7]some whistle blo[D]w.

[G]Just a kid, actin' smart,
I went and b[D]roke my darling's heart,
[A7]I guess I was too young to know.
[D]They took me off the Georgia Main,
Locked me [G]to a ball and chai[D]n.
I heard that lone[A7]some whistle blow[D].

[D]All alone I bear the shame,
I'm a n[G]umber, not a name[D].
I heard that lon[A7]esome whistle blo[D]w.
All I do is set (sic) an' cry
When the ev[G]enin' train goes by[D].
I heard that lone[A7]some whistle blow[D].

[G]I'll be locked here in this cell
Till my [D]body's just a shell
An' my [A7]hair turns whiter than snow.
[D]I'll never see that gal of mine.
Lord, I'm in [G]Georgia doin' time[D].
I heard that lone[A7]some whistle blow.
