This is a sequel to "Folsom Prison Blues" by Johnny Cash.


We busted out of Folsom prison twenty minutes ago
We ran like hell but there's still so far to go
So we jumped us this train and we're tryin to lay low
And we're ridin along while that train whistle blows

I've been listenin' to that whistle for as long as I recall
But I ain't got no idea where this train goes at all
But beggars can't be choosers - after all
You know the bigger we come you know the harder we fall

I guess I've heard this train might go down to San Antonio
Just a hop skip and jump from Mexico
As long it don't stop us out in Reno
Cause I burnt me some bridges down there don'tcha know

Well I'm just grateful for this train to take me anywhere
Wichita or Bangalor I really don't care
Take us far from Folsom, driver, as far as you dare
And I'll be damned if any train ever takes me back there

Yeah I'll be damned if any train ever takes me back there
