Folsom Prison Blues

Album: Mama Tried
NOTE: I don't do actual tablature very often, so sorry if the lick is hard to read.
You probably know it anyways.

INTRO: E

  E
I hear that train a-comin, it's comin' around the bend
E
I ain't seen the sunshine since I don't know when
    A                                               E    
I'm locked in Folsom Prison and time keeps draggin' on
      B7                                         E
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 and 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 cry


SOLO


I bet there's rich folks eatin' in a fancy dinin' 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' me and that's what tortures me


SOLO


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


OUTRO lick (skip the very first note of the INTRO lick)
