Folsom Prison Blues

Intro: B7 E  
I hear the train a comin, It's rollin round the bend   
I ain't seen the sunshine since, I don't know when    
      A                                                                       E    
I'm stuck in Folsom Prison, And time keeps draggin on    
             B7                                                      E    
But that train keeps a rollin on down to San Antone    
When I was just a baby, my mamma told me son   
Always be a good boy don't ever play with guns   
        A                                                         E    
But I shot a man in Reno, Just to watch him die   
           B7                                                                   E    
When I hear that whistle blowin', I hang my head and cry   


I bet there's rich folk eatin in a fancy dinin car   
Probaly drinkin coffee and smokin big cigars   
        A                                                        E    
But I knew I had it comin, I know I can't be free   
               B7                                                                     E   
But those people keep a-movin', and that's what tortures me   


If they freed me from this prison, If that railroad train was mine   
I think that I would move a little farther down the line   
A                                                                      E    
Far from folsom prison, thats where I'd want to stay   
            B7                                                             E   
And I'd let that lonesome whistle blow my blues away   

(Play little lick)
