Johnny Cash – Folsom Prison Blues chords

Capo 1st fret


|    B7    |    B7    |     E     |     E     |

EI hear the train a-comin';
It's rollin' 'round the bend, And I ain't seen the sunshine since I don't know when.
AI'm stuck at Folsom Prison
EAnd time keeps draggin' on,
B7But that train keeps rollin'
EOn down to San An-tone.
EWhen I was just a baby,
My momma told me, "Son, always be a good; Don't ever play with guns."
ABut I shot a man in Reno
EJust to watch him die.
B7When I hear that whistle blowin'
EI hang my head and cry.
EI bet there's rich folks eatin'
From a fancy dining car. They're prob'ly drinkin' coffee and smokin' big cigars.
AWell, I know I had it comin',
EI know I can't be free.
B7But those people keep a-movin'
EAnd that's what tortures me.
EWell, 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,
AFar from Folsom Prison,
EThat's where I want to stay.
B7And I'd let that lonesome whistle
EBlow my blues a-way.
