Number Nine Train - Tarheel Slim

Number Nine Train

Tarheel Slim

(Alden Bunn, FURY 1016, 1959)

[Chorus]
Number nine, number nine
Took my baby up the line
Number nine, number nine
Took my baby up the line
When I hear that lonesome whistle
Lord, I just can't help from cryin'

My baby left early one morning
She didn't even say goodbye
Everytime I hear that whistle
Tears fall from my eyes

[Chorus]

At night I wake up screamin'
My pillow's soakin' wet
I keep hearin' that lonesome whistle
I can not forget
I'm walkin' around in circles
I don't know what to do
I'm so broken hearted
I'm so doggone blue

[Chorus]

Gonna work hard every day
Gonna save up all my pay
I'm goin' to the railroad station
And get on my way

[Chorus]

Blow, blow lonesome whistle
I gotta find that gal of mine

Blow, blow lonesome whistle
I gotta find that gal of mine

Blow, blow lonesome whistle
I gotta find that gal of mine
