Fantastic Videos of Railroading Songs - Lonesome Whistle
I was riding Number Nine, Heading south from Caroline. I heard that lonesome whistle blow. Got in trouble, had to roam, Left my gal and left my home. I heard that lonesome whistle blow. 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.
