J Heard the Whistle Blowing
164
I HEARD THE WHISTLE BLOWING
See White's head-note (p. 65) quoted in the preceding song. Obtained from Miss Julia Stokes who recorded it from the singing of Hettie Twiggs, Crossnore, North Carolina, July, 1931.
1.1 heard the whistle blowing; I heard the whistle blowing; I heard the whistle blowing; Good-bye, sweetheart, good-bye.
2. The train is at the station; The train is at the station; The train is at the station; Good-bye, sweetheart, good-bye.
3. Off to war, I'm going; Off to war, I'm going; Off to war, I'm going; Good-bye, sweetheart, good-bye.
4.1 give you a dime of my ring; I give you a dime of my ring; 1 give you a dime of my ring; Good-bye, sweetheart, good-bye.
