JOHNNY CASH


Folsom Prison Blues Lyrics

I hear the train a comin' it's rollin 'round the bend
And I a'int seen the sunshine since I don't know when
I'm stuck in Folsom Prison, and time keeps draggin' on
But that train keeps a movin' on down to-San-An-Tone

When I was just a baby my mame 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 heat the whistle blowin' I hang my head and cry

Well, if they freed me fom this prison
If that railroad train was mine
I bet I'd move it all a little farther down the line
Far from Fulsom Prison, that's where I want to stay

And I'd let that lonsome whistle, blow my blues away
I don't like it
But I guess things happen that way
You ask me if I'll get along I guess I will, some way
I don't like it But I guess things happen that way
God gave me that girl to lean on
Then He put me on my own Heaven help me be a man
Have the strength to stand aloneI don't like it
But I guess things happen that way
You asked me if I'll find another
I don't know
I can't say I don't like it But I guess things happen that way

Johnny Cash was a true legend and always will be the King of Country music .
This song is about truth and what happens in those places . We all have a touch of redneck in us wether we want it or not lol

Johnny cash is a true legend. None of you little knobheads will ever come close to playing it like he did.

Never liked the sentiments behind this song. He kills someone for no reason, then winges that people who haven't killed anyone are allowed to go in trains and smoke. You could too if you didn't kill

The most beautiful version of this song was sang by Caitlyn Johnson. A recording of her voice singing this song was played through the speakers on the day she was laid to rest.
