"Hello, I'm Johnny Cash."
An American Legend
Johnny Cash - Folsom Prison Blues ( with Lyrics)
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.
I'm stuck in Folsom Prison and time keeps draggin' on.
But that train keeps on rollin' on down to San Antone.
When I was just a baby, my mama told me, "Son,
Always be a good boy; don't ever play with guns."
But I shot a man in Reno, just to watch him die.
When I hear that whistle blowin' I hang my head and cry.
I bet there's rich folks eatin' in a fancy dining car.
They're probably drinkin' coffee and smokin' big cigars,
WELL I know I had it comin', I know I can't be free,
But those people keep on movin', and that's what tortures me.
Well, if they freed me from this prison, if that railroad train was mine,
I bet I'd move IT on a little further down the line,
Far from Folsom Prison, that's where I want to stay,
And I'd let that lonesome whistle blow my blues away.
