Verse 4

When everybody's tryin' to sleep,

I'm somewhere makin' my midnight creep; Every morning the rooster crow, Something tell me I got to go.

Verse 5

Cop's wife cried, "Don't kick him down, Rather be dead, six feet in the ground."

When you come home you can eat pork and beans; I eat more chicken any man seen.

Verse 6

When everybody's try'n to sleep,

I'm somewhere makin' my midnight creep. just the mornin' the rooster crow, Somethin' tell me I got to go.

I woke up this morning, wouldn't even get out of my door. (Twice) Enough trouble to make a poor girl wonder where she gonna go.

Verse 3

They rowed a little boat, about five miles 'cross the farm. (TWice)

I packed up all my clothing, throwed it in and they rowed me along.

Verse 4

It thundered and it lightened and the winds began to blow. (TWice) There was a thousand women didn't have no place to go.

Verse 5

I went out to the lonesome, high old lonesome hill. (Twice) I looked down on the old house where I used to live.

Verse 6

Backwater blues have caused me to pack up my things and go. (Twice) 'Cos my house fell down and I can't live there no more.

And there ain't no place for a poor old girl to go.

Thou givest fever when we klsseth, Fever with thy flaming youth. Fever, I'm afire;

Fever, yea, I burn forsooth!"

When I wes 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.

Verse 3

I bet there's rich folk eatin' in a fancy dinin' car; They're prob'ly drinkin' coffee and smokin' big Cigars. Well, 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.

Verse 4

Well, if they freed me from this prison, if that railroad train was mine, I bet I'd move to 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.
