OPENER    Basic

Circle left
Far from that Folsom Prison there's where I want to stay
Then that lonesome whistle can blow my blues away

Well, walk around that corner, seesaw around your own
Men star right, go one time round now
Left allemande and dosado, promenade
Oh, when I hear that whistle blowing
I hang my head and walk away


FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

2 & 4 (1 & 3) do a right & left thru and turn that lady fair
1 & 3 square thru 4 hands around out there
You go 4 hands around, square thru 3/4 around you go
Trade by, swing thru
Now boys run around her, you wheel & deal and corner swing
Left allemande and then you dosado your baby
You promenade go round that ring


MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Circle left
I know I'm going to prison, I know I can't be free
But I hate to leave my honey, that's what bothers me

Well, walk around that corner, seesaw around your own
Men star right, go one time round now
Left allemande and dosado, promenade
Oh, when I hear that whistle blowing
I hang my head and walk away

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.
