Folsom prison blues By cole fagan

he talks about being stuck in fol-some prison and he talks about what he would do if he wasn't in prison he sais that times doesnt fly and that prison takes up a lot of time he cant live knowing that people lives just carry on


I hear the train a comin'

It's rollin' '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 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 smokin' big cigars

But I know I had it comin'

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 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

he talks about his mom how she told him not to play with guns but he shot a man then ended up going to prison

he talks about being in jail but he doesn't like that society is moving on with thiere lives and that what tortures him and his feelings he wants them to free him so he can basically get as far from that prison as he can

when they do free him he wants he wants to be at the front of the line for a train and he is gonna let the whistle blow until he is far away from the prison
