Folsome prison blues

Intro.E 
 
 
E 
I hear the train a commin, it's rollin around the bend, 
 
and i ain't seen the sunshine since i don't know when, 
A                                                    E 
I'm stuck in Folsom prison, and time keeps draggin on, 
           B7                                  E 
But that train keeps a rollin on down to San Antone. 
 
E 
When i was just a baby, my mama told me son, always 
                                                  A 
be a good boy, don't ever play with guns, but i shot 
                                  E    B7    
a man in Reno, just to watch him die, when i hear that 
               E 
whistle blowin i hang my head and cry.

E   
I bet there's rich folks eaten, in a fancy dinin car, 
 
there probly drinkin coffee, and smokin big sigars, 
    A                                         E 
but i know i had it comin, i know i can't be free, 
           B7   
but those people keep a movin, and that's what  
         E 
tortures me. 
E 
Well if they freed me from this prison, if that railroad 
 
was mine, i bet i'd move it all a little farther down  
           A  
the line, far from folsom prison, that's where i want to 
E              B7 
stay, and i'd let that lonesome whistle blow my blues  
E 
away.
