    I hear that train a comin' it's rollin' round the bend
    And I ain't seen the sunshine since I don't know when
    I'm stuck in Folsom Prison and time keeps dragging on
    But that freight train keeps a rolling on down to San Antone
    Well when I was just a baby my mama told me son
    Bocephus be a good boy don't ever play with guns
    But I killed a man in Shreveport just to watch him die
    When I hear that whistle blowing I hang my head and I cry
    I bet there's rich folks eatin' in a fancy dining car
    They're prob'ly drinking coffee and smoking big cigars
    But I know I had it coming I know I can't be free

    But those people keep a moving and that's what tortures me
    [ guitar ]Well if they freed me from this prison if
    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 wanna stay
    Then Lord I'd let that lonesome whistle blow my blues away
    Oh Lord I'd let that lonesome whistle blow all my blues away
