   C        D       Am     C     D     Am
I hurt myself today to see if I still feel
   C      D       Am        C     D             Am
I focus on the pain the only thing that's real
C           D         Am           C        D    Am
The needle tears a hole the old familiar sting
      C      D       Am           C             D        G
Try to kill it all away, but I remember everything.
Am                     F                 C             G
What have I become? My sweetest friend
Am                F                C                 G
Everyone I know goes away in the end
Am                                F          C              G
And you could have it all, my empire of dirt
Am                  F                 C              G
I will let you down, I will make you hurt
C  D  Am...
I wear this crown of thorns upon my liar's chair
Full of broken thoughts, I cannot repair
Beneath the stains of time the feelings disappear
You are someone else, I am still right here
Am  F  C  G...
What have I become? My sweetest friend
Everyone I know goes away in the end
And you could have it all, my empire of dirt
I will let you down, I will make you hurt
G
If I could start again a million miles away
I would keep myself, I would find a way.

Easy Guitar Tabs : Johnny Cash – Folsom Prison Blues




E
I hear the train a comin'
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 in Folsom prison, and time keeps draggin' on
             B7                         A│                        E
But that train keeps a rollin' on down to San Antone..
E  E7  A  E...
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..
E  E7  A  E...
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...
E  E7  A  E...
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...

D
Everybody knows where you go when the sun goes down.
                                               E          A
I think you only live to see the lights of town.
D
I wasted my time when I would try, try, try.
G                                                                         A          D
When the lights have lost their glow, you're gonna cry, cry, cry.
D  E  A  D...
Soon your sugar-daddies will all be gone.
You'll wake up some cold day and find you're alone.
You'll call to me but I'm gonna tell you: "Bye, bye, bye,"
When I turn around and walk away, you'll cry, cry, cry,
D                                                          A
You're gonna cry, cry, cry and you'll cry alone,
G                                                    D
When everyone's forgotten and you're left on your own.
                        E     A    D
You're gonna cry, cry, cry.
D  E  A  D...
I lie awake at night to wait 'til you come in
You stay a little while and then you're gone again
Every question that I ask, I get a lie, lie, lie
For every lie you tell, you're gonna cry, cry, cry
D  E  A  D...
When your fickle little love gets old, no one will care for you.
You'll come back to me for a little love that's true.
I'll tell you no and you gonna ask me why, why, why?
When I remind you of all of this, you'll cry, cry, cry.
D  A  G  D...
You're gonna cry, cry, cry and you'll want me there,
It'll hurt when you think of the fool you've been.
You're gonna cry, cry, cry

And no one else could come between.
But now you've left me and love another;
You have shattered all of my dreams:

You make me happy when skies are gray
You'll never know dear, how much I love you
Please don't take my sunshine away
A  D  A  D...
In all my dreams, dear, you seem to leave me
When I awake my poor heart pains.
So when you come back and make me happy
I'll forgive you dear, I'll take all the blame.
A  D  A  D...
You are my sunshine, my only sunshine
You make me happy when skies are gray
You'll never know dear, how much I love you
Please don't take my sunshine away

My head's been wet with the midnight dew
I've been down on bended knee talkin' to the man from Galilee

I thought I heard the shuffle of the angel's feet
He called my name and my heart stood still
When he said, "John go do My will!"

Workin' in the dark against your fellow man
But as sure as God made black and white
What's done in the dark will be brought to the light

You can run on for a long time
Run on for a long time
Run on for a long time
Sooner or later God'll cut you down
Sooner or later God'll cut you down

Go and tell that midnight rider
Tell the rambler, the gambler, the back biter
Tell 'em that God's gonna cut you down
Tell 'em that God's gonna cut you down
Tell 'em that God's gonna cut you down
