Lin from Kansas: Nope
Snippets from memory:

Just a kid acting smart
I nearly broke my darlin's heart
I guess I was too young to know.
They put me on the Georgis train
Tied me to a ball and chain.
I heard that lonesome whistle blow.

And my hair is white as the snow.
I'll never see that gal of mine
Lord, I'm in Georgia doing time.
I heard that lonesome whistle blow.
