Jerry Garcia - Lonesome 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 train keeps 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 whistle blowing, I hang my head and cry...
  • I bet there's rich folks eating in a fancy dining car
  • They're probably drinkin' coffee and smoking big cigars.
  • Well I know I had it coming, I know I can't be free
  • But those people keep a movin'
  • And that's what tortures me...
  • Well if they freed me from this prison,
  • If that railroad train was mine
  • I bet I'd move it on a little farther down the line
  • Far from Folsom prison, that's where I want to stay
  • And I'd let that lonesome whistle blow my blues away...
