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 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 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 out over 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.
