G G 
I hear the train coming it's rolling round the bend

G7 G7
and I ain't seen the sunshine sine I don't know when

C C G G
I'm stuck at Folsom Prison and time keeps draggin' on

D7 D7 G G
But that train keeps rollin' on down to San Antone




G G
When I was just a baby my Mama told me 'Son

G7 G7
always be a good boy don't ever play with guns

C C G G
But I shot the man in Reno just to watch him die

D7 D7 G G
when I hear that whistle blowin' I hang my head and cry




G G
I bet there's rich folks eatin' In a fancy dinin' car

G7 G7
They're probably drinkin' coffee And smokin' big cigars

C C G G
Well, I know I had it comin' I know I can't be free

D7 D7 G G
But those people keep a-movin' and that's what tortures me




G G
Well, if they freed me from this prison, If that railroad train was mine

G7 G7
I bet I'd move it on a little, Farther down the line

C C G G
Far from Folsom Prison That's where I want to stay

D7 D7 G G
And I'd let that lonesome whistle, Blow my blues away
