I hear the train a comin Its rollin 'round the bend
And I Ain't seen the sunshine, Since I don't know when
Im stuck in Folsom Prison, And time keeps Dragging on
But the 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.
But I shot a man in Reno, Just to watch him die
When I hear that whistle Blowin' I hang my head and cry
I bet there's rich folks eatin' in a fancy dining car, they're probably drinkin' coffee and smoking big cigars
But I know I had it comin' I know I cant be free
But those people keep a-movin And that's what tortures me
Well, if they freed me from this prison if the railroad train was mine I bet I'd move out over 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
