Folsom Prison Blues Lyrics - Reverend Horton Heat

Well, I hear that train a comin' 

It's rollin' 'round the bend 

And I ain't seen the sunshine 

Since I don't know when 


'Cause I'm stuck in Folsom prison 

And time keeps draggin' on 

But that train keeps rollin' 

On down to San Antone 


When I was just a baby 

My momma 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 


Well, I bet you all them rich men 

Are in fancy dine-in cars 

Probably drinking coffee 

And smokin' big cigars 


Well, I know I had it comin' 

I know I can't be free 

But those people keep a movin' 

And that's what tortures me 


Well, if they freed me from this prison 

And that railroad train was mine 

You bet I'd move it farther 

A little farther 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
