I have a friend called James Walla. Relatedly it mentions in the song Folsom Prison, chances are its a nickname of some description for that famous prison. Made knowen by johnny cash due to 'folsom prison blues' and a live performance there.

Walla is a shortened version of the arabic term "wallahi" which means "I swear to God" and is a very powerful declaration that you are speaking to truth. Walla walla tells the story of an arab youth caught in a life of crime, and he tells his friend "walla walla I will never go back to Folsom prison."

Since no one really has the fondest clue what they are talking about i will set them strait. Walla Walla is a city in Washington where the Walla Walla state pen is located. Being a state pen thats where the worst go. So when you here our boys say "we will see you in Walla Walla" they are maknig refrance to then pen that is there. I have visited myself and currently live in Washington. So there. Now you know. And if your in the area check it out. Its a nice city. Peace.

As its been mentioned Walla Walla is a City in Washington state and it a has a famouse Penitentiary or Prison there. You notice that the song mentions Folsom Prison with isnt the same place.

So the song is about going to prison and Walla Walla and Folsom are examples and doesn't necessarily mean the guy in the song is actually going to those exact prison.
