The tablature in the PDF link below will show you exactly how to play the melody and chords for the song Folsom Prison Blues, written and performed by the “Man in Black” himself, Johnny Cash. Cash first recorded this song way back in 1955 and it quickly became one of his signature pieces. It is a rocking fusion of blues and country elements, with murder, prison, trains and longing woven all through it. It is a favorite at jam sessions and definitely worth having in your toolbag.
