<p>That's not the song. Mic Geronimo came up on my google search. The song I'm looking for is not a rap, it's more like a slower ballad. played on black radio stations in the 90's.</p><p> additonal information...in the song, the man is singing from jail. my apologies...maybe the lyric is "shot a man" not killed a man</p>

Hi again,

When you mentioned that in the song, the man is singing from jail, the first thing that came to mind was Johnny Cash's 'Folsom Prison Blues', which does contain this line, "I shot a man". Of course this was not initially done in the 90's, but maybe it was a remake which you heard on the radio. I found a remake made by Everlast and DJ Muggs, but it seems to be from the 2000's not the '90's.

Folsom Prison Blues


I hear the train a comin'
It's rollin' 'round the bend,
And I ain't seen the sunshine,
Since, I don't know when,
I'm stuck in Folsom Prison,
And time keeps draggin' on,
But that train keeps a-rollin',
On down to San Antone.

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.

I bet there's rich folks eatin',
In a fancy dining car,
They're probably drinkin' coffee,
And smokin' big cigars,
But I know I had it comin',
I know I can't be free,
But those people keep a-movin',
And that's what tortures me.

Well, if they freed me from this prison,
If that railroad train was mine,
I bet I'd move out over a little,
Farther down the line,
Far from Folsom Prison,
That's where I want to stay,
And I'd let that lonesome whistle,
Blow my Blues away.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Please let me know if this is the song you had in mind, and if not, I will continue to research it for you. If you can remember any other details re: the artist (you're positive he's black?), this will help.

Regards,
Cher

sorry but that's not the song. 99.9 sure the artist is black. black radio station and definitive african-american sound. the song has an apologetic tone (to mom). I think it is from the 2000's, I'm not good with dates or time frames but now that I'm remembering more details...
