    "I Heard That Lonesome Whistle" Lyrics

    Hank Snow

    (Hank Williams - Jimmie Davis)

    I was ridin' No 9 heading south from Caroline
    I heard that lonesome whistle blow
    Got in trouble had to roam left my gal and left my home
    I heard that lonesome whistle blow.

    Just a kid acting smart I went and broke my darling's heart
    I guess I was too young to know
    They took me off to Georgia Main locked me to a ball and chain
    I heard that lonesome whistle blow.

    --- Instrumental ---

    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 evening train goes by
    I heard that lonesome whistle blow.

    I'll be locked here in this cell till my body's just a shell
    And my hair turns whiter than the snow
    I'll never see that gal of mine Lord I'm in Georgia doing time
    I heard that lonesome whistle blow...
