Johnny Cash

"(I Heard That) Lonesome Whistle"

[Verse]
I was riding Number 9
Heading south from Caroline
I heard that lonesome whistle blow

I got in trouble, had to roam
I left my gal and left my home
I heard that lonesome whistle blow

[Chorus]
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 the Georgia Main
Locked me to a ball and chain
I heard that lonesome whistle blow

[Verse]
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 that evening train goes by
I heard that lonesome whistle blow

[Chorus]
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
I'm in Georgia doing time
I heard that lonesome whistle blow
