    Lyrics

    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 Anton..
    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'd free me from this prison,
    if that railroad train was mine
    I bet I'd moved it all a little further 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.....
    I bet I'd move just a little further 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.....
