Folsom Prison Blues  Johnny Cash

I hear the train a comin', it's rolling round the bend
and I ain't seen the sunshine since I don't know when,
I'm st[A]uck in Folsom prison, and time keeps draggin' [E]on
but that tr[B]ain keeps a rollin' on down to San An[E]ton..
When I was just a baby my mama told me. Son,
always be a good boy, don't ever play with guns.
But I s[A]hot a man in Reno just to watch him d[E]ie
when I h[B]ear that whistle blowing I hang my head and c[E]ry..
I bet there's rich folks eating in a fancy dining car
they're probably drinkin' coffee and smoking big cigars.
Well I know I had it coming, I know I can't be free
but those people keep a movin'
and that's what tortures me...
Well if they'd free me from this prison,
if that railroad train was mine
I bet I'd move just a little further down the line
far from Folsom prison, that's where I want to stay
and I'd let that lonesome whistle blow my blues away.....
