Folsom Prison Blues--David Allan Coe

His take on the Johnny Cash classic.   Yes, it's a different key (mostly), and the
lyrics have been switched.   Coe can do that...nobody wants to tell him otherwise.
Also, play it as a bluesy ballad--and, for God's sake, put yer heart in it.

Note: he throws in a Dsus4 (xx0230) occasionally, usually at the end of a line
(baby... son... boy... guns... die..., etc).   Use at your discretion.


D
When I was just a baby, my mama told me son
Always be a good boy, don't ever play with guns
     G                                            D
But I shot a man in Reno, Lord just to watch him die
     A                                   G       D
Now I'm in the Folsom Prison, I'm starin at the sky 

I hear the train a comin, it's rollin round the bend
And I ain't seen the sunshine woman, since I don't know when
I'm stuck in Folsom prison, the time keeps draggin on
And those wheels keep rollin on down to San Antone

If they freed me from this prison and that railroad train was mine
You can bet I'd move it on a little farther down the line
Far from Folsom Prison, that's where I long to be
And those wheels keep rollin, Lord they would not torture me

I know there's rich folks out there in those fancy dining cars
I know they're drinkin coffee lord, smokin big cigars
But I know I had it comin, I know I can't be free
But those wheels keep rollin, Lord that's what tortures me

If they freed me from this prison and that railroad train was mine
You can bet I'd move it on a little farther down the line
Far from Folsom Prison, that's where I long to be
And those wheels keep rollin, Lord theyw ould not torture me

Key change to E

E
I hear the train a-comin, it's rollin round the bend
And I ain't seen the sunshine woman since I don't know when
     A                                                   E
Well I'm stuck in Folsom prison, and time keeps draggin on
          B7                            A       E
And those wheels keep rollin on down to San Antone


repeat last verse once more


E
I don't care if I do die, do die, do die, do die, do die
