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,
    Bb
I'm stuck in Folsom Prison,
                        F
And time keeps draggin' on,
         C7
But that train keeps a-rollin',
                 F
On down to San Antone.

     F
When I was just a baby,

My Mama told me, "Son,

Always be a good boy,

Don't ever play with guns,"
      Bb
But I shot a man in Reno,
                  F
Just to watch him die,
       C7
When I hear that whistle blowin',
                   F
I hang my head and cry.

  F
I bet there's rich folks eatin',

In a fancy dining car,

They're probably drinkin' coffee,

And smokin' big cigars,
      Bb
But I know I had it comin',
                  F
I know I can't be free,
          C7
But those people keep a-movin',
                         F
And that's what tortures me.

      F
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,
Bb
Far from Folsom Prison,
                       F
That's where I want to stay,
        C7
And I'd let that lonesome whistle,
               F
Blow my Blues away.
