Folsom Prison Blues

Lyrics

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
full lyrics
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

John and Merle both great
Awesome song <3 Johnny was still better tho.
Don't forget they were/are great in their time. I ate with J.C. at a church in My Pleasant, IA where he put on one he'll of a show at Old Threshold Reunion. (I was a cop and liaison with his personal security). Nice man to me.
You suck doc. Merle is better than you.
This sucks

I like this version better than Johnny Cash's... Great song!!!
Lb what the hell is wrong with you do you have any taste in music!!!!
It's ok, not as good as Johnny.
A very good cover of Mr. Cash's song. Of course Cash's is better, but this is very close to being as great as his. And all of you who hate covers remember, Johnny Cash did tons of covers. Hurt was a cover and its one if the greatest songs ever.
My husband loves this song......bu t johnny cash you take this one home.
