Johnny Cash arrow / Folsom Prison Blues

: Folsom Prison Blues

1. E 
hear the train a comin' 

It's rollin' 'round the bend, 
And I ain't seen the sunshine, 
Since, I don't know E7 

I'm A 
stuck in Folsom Prison,

And time keeps draggin' E 

But that train B7 
keeps a-rollin',

On down to San Antone.

2. 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 blowin',
I hang my head and cry. 

3. I bet there's rich folks eatin', 
In a fancy dining car, 
They're probably drinkin' coffee, 
And smokin' big cigars,
But I know I had it comin',
I know I can't be free,
But those people keep a-movin',
And that's what tortures me.

4. 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,
Far from Folsom Prison,
That's where I want to stay,
And I'd let that lonesome whistle,
Blow my blues away.
