Conway Twitty Covers Johnny Cash's "Folsom Prison Blues" (WATCH)

Johnny cash Songs | Conway Twitty Covers Johnny Cash's

Have y'all ever heard Conway's cover of the infamous Johnny Cash song, "Folsom Prison Blues"? This song, both written and recorded by Cash, was released in 1955 off his With His Hot and Blue Guitar album. It, of course, hit the #1 spot on the U.S. Billboard Hot Country Singles chart.

This song has been covered dozens of times, notably by Charley Pride, Merle Haggard, Waylon Jennings, Ernest Tubb, and by Conway Twitty himself. Though there will never a version that can measure up to Johnny's, Conway's rendition is exceptional in its own right. With such raw talent, how can it not be?

I hear the train a comin'
It's rolling round 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 blowing, I hang my head and cry..

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...

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.....
