    The chord are ,,,,. 
    The verse 1
    E
    I hear the train a comin' 
    It's rollin' 'round the bend
    And I ain't seen the sunshine
    E7
    Since, I don't know when 
    A
    I'm stuck in Folsom Prison 
    E
    And time keeps draggin' on 
    B
    But that train keeps a-rollin' 
    AE
    ( Strum once only) 
    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 blowin'
    I hang my head and cry
    I bet there's rich folks eatin'
    In a fancy dining car
    They're probably drinkin' coffee
    And smokin' big cigars
    But 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
    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
    The ending is just the begginig
