I hear the train a comin #
It # s rolling 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 rollin # on down to San Antone..
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 blowing, I hang my head and cry..
I bet there # s rich folks eating in a fancy dining car
They # re probably drinkin # coffee and smoking big cigars.
Well I know I had it coming, I know I can # t be free
But those people keep a movin #
And that # s what tortures me...
Well if they freed me from this prison,
If that railroad train was mine
I bet I # d move it on 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.....
