I Heard That Lonesome Whistle  Johnny Cash

Capo 2nd fret
Intro:
| A | E | A | A |
I was ridi[A]n' Number Nine, headin' south from Caro-lin[D]e.[A]
I heard that lone - some wh[E]istle blow.[A]
I got in trouble, had to roam. I left my gal; I left my home.[D] [A]
I heard that lone - some w[E]histle blow.[A]
Just a kid[D] actin' smart, I went and broke my darlin[A]'s heart.
I guess I was too young to know.[E]
They took me off in Geor[A]gia main, locked me to a ball and chain.[D] [A]
I heard that lone - some w[E]histle blow.[A]
Interlude:
| A | E | A | A |
All a-lon[A]e I bare the shame. I'm a number, not a na[D]me.[A]
I heard that lone - some w[E]histle blow.[A]
All I do is sit and cry when that ev'ning train goes[D] by.[A]
I heard that lone - some w[E]histle blow.[A]
I'll be lo[D]cked here in this cell till my body's just a [A]shell,
And my hair turns whiter than snow.[E]
I'll never see [A]that gal of mine. I'm in Georgia, doin' t[D]ime.[A]
I heard that lone - some w[E]histle blow.[A]
