I was riding number nine heading south from Carolina
I heard that lonesome whistle blow
Just a kid acting smart I went and broke my darlings heart
They took me off that Georgia main locked me to a ball and chain
I heard that lonesome whistle blow
I'll be locked in this cell till my body's just a shell
I'll never see that girl of mine I'm in Georgia doing time
I herd that lonesome whistle blow
