      About "Folsom Prison"

      Lyrics for Merle Haggard - "Folsom Prison"

      I hear that train a comin', it's comin' 'round the bend
      I ain't seen the sunshine since I don't know when
      I'm locked in Folsom Prison and time keeps draggin' on
      And I hear that train a-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 lonesome whistle I hang my head and I 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 I hear that train a-rollin' and that's what tortures me

      Well, if they freed me from this prison and that railroad train was mine
      I bet I'd move it over a little farther down the line
      Far from Folsom Prison that's where I long to be
      And let that train keep rollin' and roll my blues away
