letra de lonesome whistle – beck

i was riding number 9, heading south from caroline
i heard that lonesome whistle blowin’

i got in trouble, had to roam, left my gal and left my
home
i heard that lonesome whistle blowin’

just a kid acting smart, i went and broke my darlin’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 blowin’

all alone i bear the shame, i’m a number not a name
i heard that lonesome whistle blowin’

all i do is sit and cry when that evening train goes by
i heard that lonesome whistle blowin’

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

i’ll never see that gal of mine, lord i’m in georgia
doin’ time
i heard that lonesome whistle blowin’

i heard that lonesome whistle blowin’
