Bob Dylan - Lonesome Whistle: chords

       C
I was riding number 9,
         F          C
heading south from Carolina.
                G                 C
I heard that lo-onesome whistle blow.
Got in trouble, had to roam,
         F             C
left my girl, left my home.
                G                 C
I heard that lo-onesome whistle blow.

        F
Just a kid, acting smart,
             C
I went and broke my baby's heart.
               D             G
I guess I was too young to know.
             C
They took me off that Georgia Main
               F             C
and locked me to a ball and chain.
                G                 C
I heard that lo-onesome whistle blow.

All I do is sit and cry
as the evening train goes by.
I heard that lonesome whistle blow.
I'll be locked here in this cell
till my body's just a shell
and my head turns whiter than snow.
I'll never see that girl of mine
'cos I'm in Georgia doing time.
I heard that lonesome whistle blow.

I'll be locked here in this cell
till my body's just a shell
and my head turns whiter than snow.
I'll never see that girl of mine
'cos I'm in Georgia doing time.
I heard that lonesome whistle blow.
