    Folsom Prison Blues
    written and recorded by Johnny Cash

    [G] I hear the train a coming it's rolling round the bend

    And I ain't seen the sunshine since [G7] I don't know when

    I'm [C] stuck at Folsom Prison and time keeps dragging [G] on

    But that [D7] train keeps rolling on down to San An-[G] tone

    When I was just a baby my mama told me Son

    Always be a good boy don't [G7] ever play with guns

    But I [C] shot a man in Reno just to watch him [G] die

    When I [D7] hear that whistle blowing I hang my head and [G] cry


    I bet there's rich folks eating in a fancy dining car

    They're probably drinking coffee and [G7] smoking big cigars

    But [C] I know I had it coming I know I can't be [G ]free

    But those [D7] people keep a moving and that's what tortures [G] me

    Well if they freed me from this prison if that railroad train was mine

    I bet I'd move on over a little [G7] farther down the line

    [C] Far from Folsom Prison that's where I want to [G] stay

    And I'd [D7] let that lonesome whistle blow my blues a-[G] way
