Upbeat Songs With Depressing Lyrics, Johnny Cash

16 Biggest Hits album at Amazon.com
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
This song is about a man in prison lamenting why he is not out in the world as a free man because of his life in crime.
Also, Johnny was watching Inside the Walls of Folsom Prison while serving in the Air Force in West Germany, and he has something against that. The song is in F-major.
