Folsom Prison (Johnny Cash) - Lyrics by Dead Moon


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 movin' on
Down to san antone

When i was just a baby
My mama said "hey 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

Well, if they freed me fom this prison
If that railroad train was mine
I bet i'd move it all
A little farther down the line
Far from folsom prison
That's where i want to stay
And i'd let that lonsome whistle
Blow my blues away
