Folsom Prison BluesArtist : Johnny Cash
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,
I\'m stuck in Folsom prison, and time keeps draggin\' on
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.
