INTRO

                 D7         G              D
I was ridin' No. 9, headin' South from Caroline,
               A              D
I heard that lonesome whistle blow.
                         D7            G                D
I didn't trouble, had to roam, left my girl and left my home.
               A              D
I heard that lonesome whistle blow.

       G
Just a kid acting smart,
           D
I went and broke my darlin's heart.
                           A
I guess I was too young to know.
             D               D7
They took me off the Georgia main,
          G               D
Locked me to a ball and chain.
               A              D      A   D
I heard that lonesome whistle blow.


                      D7           G            D
All alone I bear this shame, I'm a number not a name,
               A              D
I heard that lonesome whistle blow.
                    D7           G                  D
All I do is sit and cry when the evenin' train goes by,
               A              D
I heard that lonesome whistle blow.


        G
I'll be locked here in this cell,
        D
'Til my body's just a shell 
                              A
And my hair turns whiter than snow.
           D               D7
I'll never see that gal of mine,
             G             D
Lord, I'm in Georgia doin' time.
               A              D
I heard that lonesome whistle blow.
