OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Circle to the left
*I hear that train a-comin', it's rolling 'round the bend
I ain't seen the sunshine, since I don't know when

Well you're gonna walk around that corner lady
You're gonna see saw 'round your own
Left allemande that corner, weave around that ring
Well, I'm stuck in Folsom Prison, time keeps dragging on
Swing your honey gonna promenade her back home
Well, I hear that train a-movin' on down to San Antone


ALTERNATE LYRICS

*If they free'd me from this prison, and that railroad train were mine
Bet I'd move along a little bit farther down the line
Far from Folsom Prison, that's where I want to stay
And let that lonesome whistle blow my blues away


FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

All four ladies chain, you're gonna turn that girl you know
Heads you promenade outside halfway 'round you go
Lead out to the right and circle make that line and then
Dance up to the middle and come on back, pass the ocean there
All eight circulate once and a half, you box the gnat and
Swing that lady once, you're gonna promenade that track
And let that lonesome whistle blow my blues away


MIDDLE BREAK (ALTERNATE)    Basic

Four ladies promenade get one time 'round you know
Well you're gonna come back, swing your handsome man around you go
Join all of your hands now you circle and then
Let's do a left allemande that corner, weave around that ring
Well I shot a man in Reno just to watch him die
Swing your baby then you're gonna promenade you fly
And when I hear that whistle I hang my head and cry


TAG

And let that lonesome whistle blow my blues 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.
