Folsom Prison Blues  Johnny Cash

Capo 1st fret
| B7 | B7 | E | E |
I [E]hear the train a-comin';
It's rollin' 'round the bend,
And I ain't seen the sunshine since
I don't know when.
I'm st[A]uck at Folsom Prison
And time keeps draggin' on,[E]
But that trai[B7]n keeps rollin'
On down to San An-tone.[E]
When I was [E]just a baby,
My momma told me, "Son,
always be a good;
Don't ever play with guns."
But I sho[A]t a man in Reno
Just to watch him die.[E]
When I hear t[B7]hat whistle blowin'
I hang my head and cry.[E]
I [E]bet there's rich folks eatin'
From a fancy dining car.
They're prob'ly drinkin' coffee
and smokin' big cigars.
Well, I know[A] I had it comin',
I know I can't be free.[E]
But those people[B7] keep a-movin'
And that's what tortures me.[E]
Well, if they freed m[E]e from this prison,
If that railroad train was mine,
I bet I'd move it on
A little farther down the line,
[A]Far from Folsom Prison,
That's where I want to stay.[E]
And I'd let t[B7]hat lonesome whistle
Blow my blues a-way.[E]
