Folsom Prison Blues"

 

D
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,

      G                                                                   D
I'm stuck in Folsom prison, and time keeps draggin' on

             A7                                                    D
But that train keeps a rollin' on down to San Antone..


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 blowing, I hang my head and cry..

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 freed me from this prison, If that railroad train was mine
I bet I'd move it on 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

Shall I play for you, parum, pum, pum, pum, On my drum
