Folsom Prison Blues

Written by: Diane Locksley

Johnny Cash surely paid for his crime
Singing the blues while he served his time
  Sang his heart out in prison
  Till his spirits had risen
Joined the "Outlaw" singers in his prime

Written for the Behind Bars Blues contest

The "Outlaws" included Johnny Cash, Willie Nelson, Kris Kristopherson and Waylon 
Jennings.  They earned this title because the Grand Ole Opry refused to let them 
perform there.
