    (Johnny Cash)

    I hear that train a comin', rollin' around the bend
    I ain't seen the sunshine since I don't know when
    I'm stuck in Folsom Prison and time keeps draggin' on
    And that train keeps a movin' on down to San Antone.

    When I was a baby my mama told me son
    Always be a good boy don't ever play with guns
    But I shot a cat in Reno just to watch him die
    Yeah, I know I had it comin', I hang my head and cry.

    --- Instrumental ---

    I bet there's rich folks eatin' in a fancy dining car
    Prob'ly drinkin' coffeee and smokin' big cigars
    Well, I'm stuck in Folsom Prison that's where I'll always be
    And them people keep a movin' and that's what tortures me.

    Yeah, if they freed me from this prison and that railroad train was mine
    I bet I'd move it on a little farther down the line
    Far from Folsom Prison that's where I long to stay
    Yeah, I'd let that lonesome whistle blow my blues away...
