Folsom Prison Blues  Johnny Cash

Found tabs online that were wrong. This is correct, simple song to play, minimal
practice required. Tabbed by Vincent Astolfi
[E]I hear the train a comin'
It's rollin' 'round the bend
And I ain't seen the sunshine
Since, I[A] don't know when
[A]I'm stuck in Folsom Prison
And time keeps draggin' [E]on
But that [B7]train keeps a-rollin'
[A] [E]  
On down to San Antone
[E]When I was just a baby
My Mama told me, "Son
Always be a good boy
Don't e[A]ver play with guns"
But I shot a man in Reno
Just to watch him d[E]ie
When I h[B7]ear that whistle blowin'
I hang my h[A]ead and c[E]ry
[E]I bet there's rich folks eatin'
In a fancy dining car
They're probably drinkin' coffee
And s[A]mokin' big cigars
But I know I had it comin'
I know I can't be f[E]ree
But those pe[B7]ople keep a-movin'
And that's what [A]tortures [E]me
[E]Well, if they freed me from this prison
If that railroad train was mine
I bet I'd move it on a little
[A]Farther down the line
Far from Folsom Prison
That's where I want to s[E]tay
And I'd l[B7]et that lonesome whistle
Blow all my [A]blues a[E]way
