Johnny Cash

1. 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 at Folsom prison and time keeps draggin' on
But that train keeps rollin' on down to San Antone

2. When I was just a baby my mama told me 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 blow I hang my head and cry

3. I bet there's rich folks eatin' from a fancy dinning car
They're prob'ly drinkin' coffee and smoking big cigars
Well I know I had it comin' I know I can't be free
But those people keep a movin' and that's what tortures me

4. Well if they freed me from this prison if this railroad train was mine
I bet I'd movin' over a little farther down the line
Far from Folsom prison that's where I want to stay
And I'd let that lonesome whistle blow my blues away
