(Words and music by Jimmie Davis and Hank Williams, Sr.) I was riding number nine, Goin' south from Caroline. I heard that lonesome whistle blow. Got in trouble, had to roam, Left my gal, I left my home. I heard that lonesome whistle blow. Just a kid actin' smart, I went and broke my baby's heart. I guess I was too young to know. They took me off the Georgia main, Locked me to a ball and chain. I heard that lonesome whistle blow. All I do is sit and cry, As the evenin' 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 head turns whiter than snow. I haven't seen that gal of mine 'Cos I'm in Georgia doin' time. I heard that lonesome whistle blow. I'll be locked here in this cell Till my body's just a shell. And my head turns whiter than snow. I'll never see that gal of mine 'Cos I'm in Georgia doin' time. I heard that lonesome whistle blow.
