Voice Range: FC (1 octave + 8 half tone) – how to use this?

 

I Fhear the train a comin’
It’s Frolling round the bend
And FI ain’t seen the sunshine since F7I don’t know when
I’m A#stuck in Folsom prison, A#and time keeps draggin’ Fon     F
But that C7train keeps a rollin’ C7on down to San AnFtone

 

When FI was just a baby my Fmama told me. Son
FAlways be a good boy, don’t F7ever play with guns
But I A#shot a man in Reno A#just to watch him Fdie     F
When I C7hear that whistle blowing, C7I hang my head and Fcry

 

Solo:
F,    F,    F,    F7
A#A#F,    F
C7,   C7,   F

 

I Fbet there’s rich folks eating in a Ffancy dining car
They’re Fprobably drinkin’ coffee and F7smoking big cigars
Well I A#know I had it coming, A#I know I can’t be Ffree      F
But those C7people keep a movin’    C7and that’s what tortures Fme

 

Solo:
F,    F,    F,    F7
A#A#F,    F
C7,   C7,   F

 

Well if they Ffreed me from this prison
If that Frailroad train was mine
I Fbet I’d move it on a little F7farther down the line
A#Far from Folsom prison, A#that’s where I want to A#stay       A#
And I’d C7let that lonesome whistle C7blow my blues aFway
