About The SongFolsom Prison Blues
Perhaps more than any other song, “Folsom Prison Blues” cemented Johnny Cash’s status as the outlaw country archetype. 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. He said he was inspired by a crime drama that was played for the troops on base called Inside The Walls of Folsom Prison. “It was a violent movie,” remembered Cash. “And I just wanted to write a song that would tell what I thought it would be like in prison.”
The song was also heavily influenced (some would say plagiarized) by “Crescent City Blues”, originally recorded by Beverly Mahr and written by her husband Gordon Jenkins, who managed to win a settlement from Cash in 1969.
The song combines elements from two popular folk genres, the train song and the prison song, both of which Cash would continue to use for the rest of his career. While the first release of the song was in 1955, the 1968 At Folsom Prison version is a rare example of a live song which is considered more definitive than its studio-recorded counterpart.
Cash’s original 1955 Sun Studios single release peaked at #4, but the 1968 version recorded live in front of prisoners went to #1 on the Billboard Country chart and became one of Cash’s signature songs. On the live recording the prisoners can be heard cheering after the “I shot a man in Reno” line. Their cheers were added in post-production: in reality, the prisoners hesitated to cheer the song out of fear of punishment from the guards.

About The Artist Johnny Cash
In June 1965, his truck caught fire due to an overheated wheel bearing, triggering a forest fire in Los Padres National Forest in California. During the Court, when the judge asked Johnny why he did it, he simply said: “I didn’t do it, my truck did, and it’s dead, so you can’t question it.” The federal government sued him and was awarded $125,172 ($871,303 today). Cash eventually settled the case and paid $82,001. He claimed to be the only person ever sued by the government for starting a forest fire.
Johnny Cash was arrested crossing the Mexican border into El Paso (Texas) after some officials found 100 pills in his guitar case. He received a suspended jail sentence and a $1,000 fine on October 5, 1965.
On May 11, 1965, in Starkville (Mississippi), he was arrested for trespassing late at night onto private property to pick flowers. This incident gave the spark for the song “Starkville City Jail”.
He was also arrested on 1967, in Walker County (Georgia), after being involved in a car accident while carrying a bag of prescription pills. Cash attempted to bribe a local deputy, who turned the money down, and then spent the night in a LaFayette jail. The singer was released after a long talk with Sheriff Ralph Jones, who warned him of his dangerous behavior and wasted potential. In an interview, Cash noted: “I was taking the pills for awhile, and then the pills started taking me.”

Johnny Cash – 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 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
