Folsom Prison Blues

Johnny Cash/Johnny Cash (1955)

E
I hear the train a-comin'; it's rollin' 'round the bend,
E E7
And I ain't seen the sunshine since I don't know when,
A7 E
I'm stuck at Folsom Prison and time keeps draggin' on.
B7 E
But that train keeps a-rollin' on down to San Antone.
 
E
When I was just a baby my momma told me: "Son,
E E7
Always be a good boy; don't ever play with guns."
A7 E
But I shot a man in Reno, just to watch him die.
B7 E
When I hear that whistle blowin', I hang my head and cry.
 
E
I bet there's rich folk eatin' in a fancy dining car.
E E7
They're prob'ly drinkin' coffee and smokin' big cigars.
A7 E
But I know I had it comin', I know I can't be free.
B7 E
But those people keep a-movin', and that's what tortures me.
 
E
Well if they freed me from this prison, if that railroad train was mine,
E E7
I bet I'd move it all a little farther down the line.
A7 E
Far from Folsom Prison, that's where I want to stay.
B7 E
And I'd let that lonesome whistle blow my blues away.
