Folsom Prison Blues was written by Johnny Cash in 1953, the song came to define a large part of his stage presence, eventually leading to Cash's famous performance  

Johnny Cash wrote Folsom Prison Blues in 1953 while stationed in West Germany serving in the U.S. military. Sun Records released the song on April 30th, 1968.

When he recorded the song at Sun Studio in July 1955, Cash didn't have a drummer, so he replicated a snare drum by strumming his guitar with a dollar bill in between his strings.
