OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Mainstream

Sides face grand square
*I hear the train a comin', it's rolin' 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

Allemande left and weave
_ _ _ _ , _ _ _ _
Swing that girl and promenade
But that train keeps rollin', on down to San Antone


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Heads (sides) promenade now halfway around you go
Down the middle go right & left thru and turn the girl you know
Well you square thru to four now
Go all the way and then touch 1/4
Scoot back, boys fold, girls turn thru
Swing that corner, promenade
And let that lonesome whistle
Blow all my blues away


TAG

That train keeps rollin', on down to San Antone

Folsom Prison Blues  (1955)

I hear the train a'coming it's rolling round the bend
And I ain't seen the sunshine since I don't know when
I'm stuck at Folsom Prison and time keeps draggin' on
But that train keeps 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 blowin' I hang my head and cry

I bet there's rich folk eatin' in a fancy dining car.
They're prob'ly drinkin' coffee and smokin' big cigars,
But I know I had it comin', 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 on over 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.

(The above lyrics refer to Johnny Cash's original version.)

Lyrics by Johnny Cash.
Recorded by Johnny Cash.
