Lonesome Whistle

Lonesome Whistle

Little Feat

I was ridin' No. 9
Heading south from Carolina
I heard that lonesome whistle blow

I've got in trouble, I had to roam
Left my girl and I left my home
I heard that lonesome whistle blow

Just a kid actin' smart
I went and broke my darlin' heart
I guess, I was
I was too young, 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 alone I bear the shame
I'm a number not a name
I heard that lonesome whistle blow

I'll be locked here in this cell
Till my body's just a shell
I heard that lonesome whistle blow

Just a kid actin' smart
I went and broke my darlin' heart
I guess, I was
I was too young, too young to know

I'll never see that girl of mine
I'm in Georgia, doin' time
I heard that lonesome whistle blow

I heard that lonesome whistle blow
Heard that lonesome whistle blow
