Capo 1st fret Intro: | B7 | B7 | E | E | E 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. A I'm stuck at Folsom Prison E And time keeps draggin' on, B7 But that train keeps rollin' E On down to San An-tone. E When I was just a baby, My momma told me, "Son, always be a good; Don't ever play with guns." A But I shot a man in Reno E Just to watch him die. B7 When I hear that whistle blowin' E I hang my head and cry. E I bet there's rich folks eatin' From a fancy dining car. They're prob'ly drinkin' coffee and smokin' big cigars. A Well, I know I had it comin', E I know I can't be free. B7 But those people keep a-movin' E And that's what tortures me. E 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, A Far from Folsom Prison, E That's where I want to stay. B7 And I'd let that lonesome whistle E Blow my blues a-way. For more Johnny Cash chords, see www.unofficial-johnnycash.com!
