Folsom prison blues Lyrics

Folsom prison blues by Johnny Cash  

CD  ·  DVD  ·  Sheet music


Folsom prison blues I hear the train a comin'
I hear the train a comin'
It's rolling round the bend
It's rolling round the bend
And I ain't seen the sunshine since I don't know when,
And I ain't seen the sunshine since I don't know when,
I'm stuck in Folsom prison, and time keeps draggin' on
I'm stuck in Folsom prison, and time keeps draggin' on
But that train keeps a rollin' on down to San Antone..
But that train keeps a rollin' on down to San Antone..
When I was just a baby my mama told me. Son,
When I was just a baby my mama told me. Son,
Always be a good boy, don't ever play with guns.
Always be a good boy, don't ever play with guns.
But I shot a man in Reno just to watch him die
But I shot a man in Reno just to watch him die
When I hear that whistle blowing, I hang my head and cry..
When I hear that whistle blowing, I hang my head and cry..


I bet there's rich folks eating in a fancy dining car
I bet there's rich folks eating in a fancy dining car
They're probably drinkin' coffee and smoking big cigars.
They're probably drinkin' coffee and smoking big cigars.
Well I know I had it coming, I know I can't be free
Well I know I had it coming, I know I can't be free
But those people keep a movin'
But those people keep a movin'
And that's what tortures me...
And that's what tortures me...


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