FOLSOM PRISON BLUES

I HEAR THE TRAIN A COMING IT'S ROLLING ROUND THE BEND
AND I AIN'T SEEN THE SUNSHINE SINCE I DON'T KNOW WHEN
I'M STUCK IN FOLSOM PRISON AND TIME KEEPS DRAGGING ON
BUT THAT TRAIN KEEPS A,ROLLING 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 FROM A FANCY DINING CAR
THEY'RE PROBABLY DRINKING COFFEE AND SMOKING BIG CIGARS
WELL I KNOW I HAD IT COMING I KNOW I CAN'T BE FREE
BUT THOSE PEOPLE KEEP A MOVING 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.
