D
I was ridin' Number Nine,
        G                  D
Headin' south from Caroline.
                 A7               D
I heard that lonesome whistle blow.

Got in trouble, had to roam,
        G                 D
Left my gal an' left my home.
                 A7              D
I heard that lonesome whistle blow.

G
Just a kid, actin' smart,
            D
I went and broke my darling's heart,
A7
I guess I was too young to know.
D
They took me off the Georgia Main,
          G                 D
Locked me to a ball and chain.
                 A7               D
I heard that lonesome whistle blow.

D
All alone I bear the shame,
       G                D
I'm a number, not a name.
                A7               D
I heard that lonesome whistle blow.

All I do is set [sic] an' cry
           G                  D
When the evenin' train goes by.
                 A7               D
I heard that lonesome whistle blow.

G
I'll be locked here in this cell
        D
Till my body's just a shell
       A7
An' my hair turns whiter than snow.
D
I'll never see that gal of mine.
             G                 D
Lord, I'm in Georgia doin' time.
                 A7
I heard that lonesome whistle blow.

To play along with Beck's version this song on Austin City Limits... it's all E, A, and B7. It's be great if someone could tab out the extra pick that he uses.
