I hear the train a comin', it's rolling round the bend
     E                                           E7
And I ain't seen the sunshine since I don't know when,
    A                                              E
I'm stuck in Folsom prison, and time keeps draggin' on
    B7                                           E
But that train keeps a rollin' on down to San Antone..
 
     E
When I was just a baby my mama told me. Son,
  E                                        E7
Always be a good boy, don't ever play with guns.
     A                                     E
But I shot a man in Reno just to watch him die
      B7                                             E
When I hear that whistle blowing, I hang my head and cry..

I bet there's rich folks eating in a fancy dining car
       E                                           E7
They're probably drinkin' whiskey and smoking big cigars.
       A                                       E
Well I know I had it coming, I know I can't be free
        B7                                             E
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
     E                                          E7
I bet I'd move it on a little farther down the line
    A                                          E
Far from Folsom prison, that's where I want to stay
    B7                                          E
And I'd let that lonesome whistle blow my blues away.....
