Folsom Prison Blues Lyrics


4- I 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 stuck at Folsom Prison and time keeps draggin' on.
But that train keeps a-rollin' On down to San Antone.

15- When I was just a baby, my mama told me. "Son,
Always be a good boy don't ever play with guns."
But I shot a man in Reno just to watch him die.
When I hear that whistle blowin' I hang my head and cry.

26- -SOLO-

37- I bet there's rich folks eatin' in a fancy dining car.
They're prob'ly drinkin' coffee and smokin' big cigars,
But I know I had it comin' I know I can't be free,
But those people keep a-movin' And that's what tortures me.

48- -SOLO-

59- Well, if they freed me from this prison, if that railroad train was mine,
I bet I'd move on over a little farther 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.
