E
Now I taught the weeping willow how to cry,
F#
B7
And I showed the clouds how to cover up a clear blue sky.
E
A
And the tears that I cried for that woman are gonna flood you Big River.
E
B7
E
Then I'm gonna sit right here until I die
E
I met her accidentally in St. Paul (Minnesota).
F#
B7
And it tore me up every time I heard her drawl, Southern drawl.
E
A
Then I heard my dream was back Downstream cavortin' in Davenport,
E
B7
E
And I followed you, Big River, when you called.
E
Then you took me to St. Louis later on (down the river).
F#
B7
A freighter said she's been here but she's gone, boy, she's gone.
E
A
I found her trail in Memphis, but she just walked up the block.
E
B7
E
She raised a few eyebrows and then she went on down alone.
E
Now, won't you batter down by Baton Rouge, River Queen, roll it on.
F#
B7
Take that woman on down to New Orleans, New Orleans.
E
A
Go on, I've had enough, dump my blues down in the gulf.
E
B7
E
She loves you, Big River, more than me.
E
Now I taught the weeping willow how to cry,
F#

And the tears that I cried for that woman are gonna flood you Big River.

Folsom Prison Blues

E
I hear the train a-coming, it's rolling round the bend
E7
and I ain't seen the sunshine since I don't know when
A
E
I'm stuck at Folsom Prison, and time keeps draggin' on
B7
E
But that train keeps a-rollin' on down to San Antone
E
When I was just a baby, my Mama told me 'Son,
E7
always be a good boy; don't ever play with guns.'
A
E
But I shot a man in Reno, just to watch him die
B7
E
when I hear that whistle blowin' I hang my head and cry
E
I bet there's rich folks eatin' in a fancy dining car
E7
They're probably drinking coffee and smoking big cigars
A
E
But I know I had it coming, I know I can't be free
B7
E
But those people keep a moving, and that's what tortures me
E
Well, if they freed me from this prison, if that railroad train was mine
E7
I bet I'd move it on a little farther down the line
A
E
Far from Folsom Prison, that's where I want to stay
B7
E
And I'd let that lonesome whistle blow my blues away
