    Lyrics

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

    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.

    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.

    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.
