Folsom Prison Blues Lyrics: I hear the train a comin', it's rolling 'round the bend, And I ain't seen the sunshine since I don't know when, I'm stuck in Folsom prison, and time keeps draggin' on, But that. We'll have things fixed soon. Although he never actually did time in the California prison for which it is named, songs like this and his live shows for inmates made him an icon of reckless bad-assery. The song’s title is a clever reference to two types of Blues: the song’s genre and the blue Folsom Prison uniforms. Cash wrote Folsom Prison Blues while stationed in Germany with the Air Force in 1952.
I hear the train a comin' It's rolling round the bend And I ain't 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 rollin' on down to San Antone
