What's that old country-western song with the line: "I shot a man in Reno, just to see him die"?

That's from the song "Folsom Prison Blues" by Johnny Cash. He recorded the song in 1968. The words come from the second verse:

"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."
