[Verse]
A
I hear the train a comin'

It's rollin' 'round the bend

And I ain't seen the sunshine
       A7
Since I don't know when
D
I'm stuck in Folsom Prison
                        A
And time keeps draggin' on
         E
But that train keeps a-rollin'
D                   A
On down to San Antone


[Verse]
A
When I was just a baby 

My mama told me son

Always be a good boy
      A7
Don't ever play with guns
D
But I shot a man in Reno
                  A
Just to watch him die
       E
When I hear that whistle blowin'
D                  A
I hang my head and cry


[Verse]
A
I bet there's rich folks eatin'

In a fancy dining car

They're probably drinkin' coffee
    A7
and smokin' big cigars
D
But I know I had it comin'
                  A
I know I can't be free
          E
But those people keep a-movin' 
D                        A
And that's what tortures me


[Verse]
A
Well if they freed me from this prison

If that railroad train was mine

I bet I'd move it on a little 
        A7
Farther down the line
D
Far from Folsom Prison
                       A
That's where I want to stay 
        E
And I'd let that lonesome whistle 
D             A
Blow my blues away
