Folsom Prison Blues  Johnny Cash

[A]I hear the train a comin'
It's rollin' 'round the bend
And I ain't seen the sunshine
Since I[A7] don't know when
[D]I'm stuck in Folsom Prison
And time keeps draggin' [A]on
But that [E]train keeps a-rollin'
[D]On down to San Anton[A]e
[A]When I was just a baby
My mama told me son
Always be a good boy
Don't [A7]ever play with guns
[D]But I shot a man in Reno
Just to watch him [A]die
When I [E]hear that whistle blowin'
[D]I hang my head and [A]cry
[A]I bet there's rich folks eatin'
In a fancy dining car
They're probably drinkin' coffee
and [A7]smokin' big cigars
[D]But I know I had it comin'
I know I can't be [A]free
But those [E]people keep a-movin'
[D]And that's what tortures [A]me
[A]Well if they freed me from this prison
If that railroad train was mine
I bet I'd move it on a little
Farther [A7]down the line
[D]Far from Folsom Prison
That's where I want to [A]stay
And I'd [E]let that lonesome whistle
[D]Blow my blues [A]away
