Folsom Prison Blues                              Johnny Cash


G             
I hear the train acoming it's rolling round the bend
                                                 G7  
and I ain't seen the sunshine sine I don't know when
    C                                              G    
I'm stuck at Folsom Prison and time keeps draggin' on
         D7                                    G
But that train keeps rollin' on down to San Antone

G
When I was just a baby my Mama told me 'Son
                                           G7
always be a good boy; don't ever play with guns.
      C                                       G
But I shot the man in Reno, just to watch him die
       D7                                           G
when I hear that whistle blowin' I hang my head and cry 

G
I hear the train a coming it's rolling round the bend
                                           G7
And I ain't seen the sunshine since I don't know when
      C                                       G
I'm stuck at Folsom Prison and time keeps dragging on
       D7                                           G
But that train keeps rolling on down to San Antone

E 
When I was just a baby my mama told me Son
                                           G7
Always be a good boy don't ever play with guns
      C                                       G
But I shot a man in Reno just to watch him die
       D7                                           G
When I hear that whistle blowing I hang my head and cry
 
E
I bet there's rich folks eating in a fancy dining car
                                           G7
They're probably drinking coffee and smoking big cigars
      C                                       G
But I know I had it coming I know I can't be free
       D7                                           G
But those people keep a moving and that's what tortures me
 
E
Well if they freed me from this prison  if that railroad train was mine
                                           G7
I bet I'd move on over a little farther down the line
      C                                       G
Far from Folsom Prison that's where I want to stay
       D7                                           G
And I'd let that lonesome whistle blow my blues away
