E E
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,
A A E E
I'm stuck in Folsom prison, and time keeps draggin' on
B7 B7 E E
but that train keeps a rollin' on down to San Anton..

When I was just a baby my mama told me. Son,

always be a good boy, don't ever play with guns.
A A E E
But I shot a man in Reno just to watch him die
B7 B7 E E
when I hear that whistle blowing I hang my head and cry..

The 6th fret on the E and 2nd on the C is a hard stretch. It may be easier to play the the E as 1st A?
Well done overall

It seems that you're coming along, but I think you could make a better tablature! (: I suggest putting the chords back in F major, and in the solo, bring up the two notes on the E string half a step (4H5) and leave the rest. Happy strumming!
