(i heard that) lonesome whistle lyrics – hank williams jr.

i was ridin’ no 9
headin’ south from caroline
i heard that lone-vow-vow-some whistle blow

i 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
they locked me to a ball and chain
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

all i do is bear the shame
i’m a number not a name
i heard that lone-vow-vow-some whistle blow

i’ll be locked here in this cell
til my body’s just a sh*ll
and my hair turns whiter than snow, oh lord

i’ll never see that gal of mine
i’m in georgia doing time
i heard that lone-vow-vow-some whistle blow

i’ll never see that gal of mine…
