Johnny Cash Folsom Prison Blues (CC) [Karaoke Instrumental Lyrics]

VERSE 1

I see the spray a-comin'--it's pourin' from the tank,
And I ain't been so tickled since I pulled this prank.
I watch the fulsome pissin'--the hubbub goin' on,
But that silhouette keeps whizzin' until the water's gone.


VERSE 2

When I was just a baby, my mama told me: "Kid,
Don't shoot water towers!" (the way that I just did),
But I shot a man in Kingsland, just to watch him pee.
When I see the online footage, I smirk maniac'lly.

[instrumental break]


VERSE 3

The internet is buzzin' as I know the late shows are.
The video they're showin' is makin' me a star.
Well, I know I had it comin'--my own celebrity,
But I soon may be indicted, and that's what worries me.

[instrumental break]


VERSE 4

Well, if I didn't take that potshot, and the tower was just fine,
Who'd ever hear of Kingsland? There'd be no PR goldmine.
A little squirty water and tourists come to stay.
So I hope I get off easy; I gave the town cachet.

I know this kind of thing has just naturally got to stop, but "up to
16 years"?

And thanks for both the filk and bringing it to my attention.
