Guitar Two just strums the chords throughout the whole song while Guitar One plays an bass line (shown in measure five of the intro)
E I hear the train a-comin' It's rollin' 'round the bend and I ain't seen the
E7 A sunshine since I don't know when I'm stuck in Folsom Prison and time keeps
E B7 E draggin' on But that train keeps a-rollin' on down to San Antone
Same 12-bar chord progression throughout the all of the verses:
Verse 2: When I was just a baby my mama told me "Son Always be a good boy Don't ever with guns" But I shot a man in Reno just to watch him die When I heaer that whistle blowin' hang my head and cry
Verse 3:I bet there's rich folks eatin' In a fancy dinin' car They're prob'ly drinkin' and smokin' big cigars Well I know I had it comini' I know I can't be free But those keep a-movin' and that's what tortures me
Verse 4: If they freed me from this prison If that railroad train was mine I bet I'd it on a little farther down the line Far from Folsom Prison That's where I want tostay And let that lonesome whistle blow my blues a-way
After verses 2 and 3 there is a solo:
