E     
I hear the train a comin'
E
It's rollin' 'round the bend,
E
And I ain't seen the sunshine,
E
Since, I don't know when,
     A
I'm stuck in Folsom Prison,
                        E
And time keeps draggin' on,
         B    
But that train keeps a-rollin',
           A     E
On down to San Antone.

E
When I was just a baby,
E
My Mama told me, "Son,
E
Always be a good boy,
E
Don't ever play with guns,"
      A
But I shot a man in Reno,
                  E
Just to watch him die,
       B
When I hear that whistle blowin',
          A        E
I hang my head and cry.

E    
I bet there's rich folks eatin',
E
In a fancy dining car,
E
They're probably drinkin' coffee,
E
And smokin' big cigars,
E     A
But I know I had it comin',
A                 E
I know I can't be free,
E         B
But those people keep a-movin',
                A        E
And that's what tortures me.

E
Well, if they freed me from this prison,
E
If that railroad train was mine,
E
I bet I'd move out over a little,
E
Farther down the line,
A
Far from Folsom Prison,
A                      E
That's where I want to stay,
E                B
And I'd let that lonesome whistle,
A             E
Blow my Blues away.
