    Lyrics

    (Hank Williams - Jimmie Davis)

    I was ridin' No. 9 headin' south from Caroline
    I heard that lone-vow-vow-some whistle blow
    Got in trouble had to roam, left my gal and left my home
    I heard that lone-vow-vow-some whistle blow.

    Just a kid actin' 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 lone-vow-vow-some whistle blow.

    --- Instrumental ---

    All alone I bear the shame, I'm a number not a name
    I heard that lone-vow-vow-some whistle blow
    All I do is sit and cry when the evening train goes by
    I heard that lone-vow-vow-some whistle blow.

    I'll be locked here in this cell till 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 doing time
    I heard that lone-vow-vow-some whistle blow...
