Folsom Prison Blues
I hear that train a-comin', it's rollin' around the bend
And I ain't seen the sunshine since I don't know when
I'm stuck in Folsom prison and time keeps draggin' on
But that train keeps a-rollin' on down to San Antone
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 blowin', I hang my head and cry

I bet there's rich folks eatin' in a fancy dining car
They're probably drinking coffee and smoking big cigars
But 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

Well if that freed me from this prison
and 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.
--Johnny Cash

The song is nice but where is the collection of unrelated reading material?

I like the composition and the way the track heads off round the bend. Might well have been much nicer in a duotone rendition or black and white. 8.

Getting down and dirty helped this photo alot...good job with the perspective and framing. In my mind this ranks higher than the other diminishing point railroad shots I've voted on. The hill and the slight curve at the end help. I do wish there was more interesting features other than the dark trees on the sides.....
