 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

    F                                           C                  
 I'm stuck at Folsom Prison and time keeps dragging on

           G7                                 C
  But that train keeps 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

      F                                  C
 But I shot a man in Reno just to watch him die

       G7                                         C 
 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 drinking coffee and smoking big cigars

      F                                    C     
 But I know I had it coming I know I can't be free

     G7                                              C
 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 on over a little farther down the line

    F                                      C                               
 Far from Folsom Prison that's where I want to stay

         G7                                    C
  And I'd let that lonesome whistle blow my blues away

Clearly wrong. Well....this is just not a very good effort...in fact, it's pretty bad. Wrong key for one thing...the other being that the chords are not properly placed over the right words.

It's in F! Not C, nearly gave myself a hernia trying to sing it in that key!
