Song Lyrics

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 in Folsom Prison and time keeps draggin` on.

But that train keeps on 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 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 on 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 on over 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.
