"Folsom Prison Blues"
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 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 blowing, 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 freed me from this prison,
If that railroad train was mine,
I bet I'd move it on 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 . . .
