Folsom Prison Blues.
Intro: B D B7 E A/B E
I hear that train comin' it's rollin' 'round the bend,
I ain't seen the sunshine, since, I don't know when,
A E A/B E
Well I'm stuck In Folsom Prison, time keeps draggin' on,
A7 B E
But that train keep's rollin' on down to San Antone.
Well I was just a baby, my Mama told me son,
Em F#7 G
Always be a good boy, don't ever play with guns,
But I shot a man in Reno, just to watch him die,
Bm7 B E
Well I hear that whistle blowin' I hang my head and cry.
Break: Em7 Bm7 A E B7 Bm7 F#7 E
I bet there's rich folk's eatin' some fancy dining car,
Their probably drinkin' coffee, and smokin' big cigars,
A E A7 E A
But I know I had it comin' I know I can't be free,
B Bm7 E
But those people keep on movin' and that what tortures me.
Break: Em7 Gmaj7 E A E A/B E7 E B7/D# E

But I move it on little farther down the line, well I,
