  The Freewheelin' Bob Dylan session 1, Columbia Studio A, NYC - 24.apr.1962, take 2, CO70091-2  

I was ridin' number nine
Goin' south from Caroline
I heard that lonesome whistle blow.

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

Just a kid actin' smart
I went an' broke my baby'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.

All i do is sit an' cry
As the evenin' train goes by
I heard that lonesome whistle blow.

I'll be locked here in this cell
'til my body's just a shell
And my hair turns whiter than snow.

I haven't seen that gal of mine
'cause i'm in Georgia doin' time.
I heard that lonesome whistle blow.

I'll be locked here in this cell
'til my body's just a shell
And my hair turns whiter than snow.

I'll never see that gal of mine
'cause i'm in Georgia doin' time
I heard that lonesome whistle blow.  up

  First McKenzie tape part 1, Home of Eve and Mac McKenzie, NYC - 23.nov.1961  

I was ridin' number nine
Goin' south from Carolina
I heard that lonesome whistle blow.

Got in trouble, had to roam
Left my gal, left my home
I heard that lonesome whistle blow.

Just a kid actin' smart
I went an' broke my darling's heart
I guess i was too young to know.

They took me off that Georgia main
Locked me to a ball and chain
I heard that lonesome whistle blow.

All i do is bend in shame
I'm a number, not a name
I heard that lonesome whistle blow.

I'll be locked here in this cell
'til my body's just a shell
An' my hair turns whiter than snow.

I'll never see that gal of mine
'cause i'm in Georgia doin' time.
I heard that lonesome whistle blow.

All i do is sit and cry
As the evenin' train goes by
I heard that lonesome whistle blow.

I'll be locked here in this cell
'til my body's just a shell
An' my hair turns whiter than snow.

I'll never see that gal of mine
'cause i'm in Georgia doin' time.

  Cynthia Gooding's radio show - 13.jan.1962  

I was ridin' number nine
Goin' south from Carolina
I heard that lonesome whistle blow.

I got in trouble, had to roam
Left my gal, left my home
I heard that lonesome whistle blow.

Just a kid actin' smart
I went an' broke my darling's heart
I guess i was too young to know.

They took me off that Georgia plane
They locked me to a ball and chain
I heard that lonesome whistle blow.

All i do is bend in shame
I'm a number, not a name
I heard that lonesome whistle blow.

I'll be locked here in this cell
'til my body's just a shell
And my hair turns whiter than snow.

I'll never see that gal of mine
'cause i'm in Georgia doin' time.
I heard that lonesome whistle blow.

I'll be locked here in this cell
'til my body's just a shell
And my hair turns whiter than snow.

I'll never see that girl of mine
'cause i'm in Georgia doing time
I heard that lonesome whistle blow.

All i do is sit and cry
As the evenin' train goes by
I heard that lonesome whistle blow.

Just a kid actin' smart
I went an' broke my darling's heart
I guess i was too young to know.

They took me off the Georgia plane
Locked me to a ball and chain
