            Lonesome Whistle Blues
Marty Stuart
Ghost Train Studio B Aug 2010
Banjo tuned E, Capo 3, Key of G


  G           C       G   
Received that posted letter
         C             G
That my baby's comin' back
        C             G
I went down to the station
         C          D7          G
To the darkness by the railroad track

Lonesome whistle I hear you cry
As you're comin' down the track
Your bringing my baby back home
But she's gone for good this time

Instrumental:

I took her rose-draped coffin
Out to the burying ground
Lord I was troubled  when that old train passed by
She never made even one sound Lonesome whistle, I hear you moan As you're going down the track You brought my baby home But she's gone for good this time Whoo, whoo, whoo, whoo, whoo, whoo..
