Lonesome Whistle  Hank Williams

Recorded by Hank Williams, Sr.
Words and music by Jimmie Davis and Hank Williams, Sr.
I was [D] ridin' number nine
Headin' [G] south from Caro-[D] line
I Heard That Lone-[A7] some Whistle [D] Blow
Got in trouble had to roam
Left my [G] gal and left my [D] home
I Heard That Lone-[A7] some Whistle [D] Blow.
1st Refrain
Just a [G] kid actin' smart
I went and [D] broke my darlin's heart
I guess I was too young to [A7] know
They took me [D] off the Georgia Main
Locked me [G] to a ball and [D] chain
I Heard That Lone-[A7] some Whistle [D] 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.
