"“He never did any hard time, but Cash had a natural sympathy for men who gave in to their worst impulses. At California's Folsom Prison, songs like "Cocaine Blues" ("When I was arrested I was dressed in black/ They put me on a train and they took me back") and "25 Minutes to Go" ("With my feet on the trap and my head on the noose/ Got 5 more minutes to go") lose some of their defiance and gain some sadness, particularly when they're interrupted by announcements like, "88419 is wanted in recept"
