{c:Verso 1}
[G]I hear the train a comin' it's rolling round the bend
And I ain't seen the sunshine since [G7]I don't know when
I'm [C]stuck in Folsom prison and time keeps draggin' [G]on
But that [D7]train keeps a rolling, down to San An[G]tone

{c:Verso 2}
[G]When I was just a baby, my mama told me son
Always be a good boy don't [G7]ever play with guns
But I [C]shot a man in Reno just to watch him [G]die
Now when [D7]I hear that lonesome whistle
I hang my head and [G]cry

{c:Verso 3}
[G]I bet there's rich folks eating in a fancy dining car
They're probably drinking coffee and [G7]smoking big cigars
Well I [C]know I had it coming I know I can't be [G]free
But those [D7]people keep moving
And that's what tortures [G]me

{c:Verso 4}
[G]Well if they free me from this prison, If that railroad train was mine
I bet I'd move it all a little [G7]farther down the line
[C]Far from Folsom prison that's where I want to [G]stay
And I'd [D7]let that lonesome whistle blow my blues a[G]way
