Folsom Prison Blues
“I hear the train a comin’
It’s rollin’ ’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….”
Folsom Prison Blues, a famous songs by Johnny Cash that has made Folsom Prison famous itself. I took a casual drive around the old town of Folsom and came across the entrance into Folsom Prison, located quite closely to Folsom City Hall.
Most of the areas are restricted of course, but they have a museum that have some historical items on display.
They have interesting items on display, including a ferries wheel made from toothpicks by inmates, and it’s almost 60 years old.
And the spooky eternal inmate as he is called.
And not to be missed, admission photo of Johnny Cash.
