I hear the train a comin'

It's rollin' 'round the bend,

And I ain't seen the sunshine,

Since, I don't know when,
    A
I'm stuck in Folsom Prison,
                        E
And time keeps draggin' on,
         B7
But that train keeps a-rollin',
                 E
On down to San Antone.

     E
When I was just a baby,

My Mama told me, "Son,

Always be a good boy,

Don't ever play with guns,"
      A
But I shot a man in Reno,
                  E
Just to watch him die,
       B7
When I hear that whistle blowin',
                   E
I hang my head and cry.

  E
I bet there's rich folks eatin',

In a fancy dining car,

They're probably drinkin' coffee,

And smokin' big cigars,
      A
But I know I had it comin',
                  E
I know I can't be free,
          B7
But those people keep a-movin',
                         E
And that's what tortures me.

      E
Well, if they freed me from this prison,

If that railroad train was mine,

I bet I'd move out over a little,

Farther down the line,
A
Far from Folsom Prison,
                       E
That's where I want to stay,
        B7
And I'd let that lonesome whistle,
               E
Blow my Blues away.

There's no F#7 in Folsom P.B. and there's
a hundred people who agree. KK.

I like to throw in an A7 right before going into the A
