Folsom Prison Blues Song Lyrics

I hear the train a comin?
it?s rolling 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 Anton..
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
now every time I hear that whistle I hang my head and cry..
I bet there?s rich folks eating in a fancy dining car
they?re probably drinkin? coffee and smoking big cigars.
Well I know I had it coming, I know I can?t be free
but those people keep a movin?
and that?s what tortures me...
Well if they?d free me from this prison,
if that railroad train was mine
I bet I?d move just a little further 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.....
