    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,
    AE
    I'm stuck in Folsom prison, and time keeps draggin on, 
    B7E
    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 
    EB7
    a man in Reno, just to watch him die, when i hear that 
    E
    whistle blowin i hang my head and cry. 
    Guitar solo...
    E
    I bet there's rich folks eaten, in a fancy dinin car, 
    there probly drinkin coffee, and smokin big sigars,
    AE
    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 
    EB7
    stay, and i'd let that lonesome whistle blow my blues 
    E
    away.
