But that train keeps a rollin, on down to 
3  -2b 2b -1 1  
San    An----tone. 


When I was just a baby, my Mama told me son, 
Always be a good boy, dont 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. 

INSTRUMENTAL 

I bet theres rich folk eatin, ina fancy dining car, 
Theyre probably drinking coffee, and smoking big cigars. 
Well I know I had it comin, I know I cant be free. 
But those people keep a movin, and thats what tortures me. 

INSTRUMENTAL 

Well If theyd free me from this Prison, if that 
railroad train was mine, 
I bet Id move it on, a little farther down the line. 
Far from Folsom Prison, thats where I want to stay. 
And Id let that lonesome whistle, blow my blues 
away. 

OUTRO: Same as Intro
