    Thanks for this Tim!!
    When I was a kid my folks watched Johnny on tv and I didn’t get it.

    Dig Johnny!

    Ha! When I was a kid we watched Johnny's show and my parents didn't like it much, but I did. I think we watched mainly so Mom could occasionally catch Mother Maybelle.

    Apparently , Mr Cash lived not far from my house in Memphis ,maybe sometime in the late 50s /early 60s

    Ya better believe ,I watched the TV show.....
    I remember vividly when he covered this tune on TV . It was the 1st time I heard the word,Kristofferson. And maybe the 1st time the word ,"Stoned" was sung on network TV

    The song that rekindled my adoration for Johnny was this, because I find it so dry, true and to-the-point:
    (For what it's worth, I don't think God cuts anyone down. Rather, I find that we simply "reap what we sow". Same as "karma", etc.)



    When I was a pre-teen my mom was into those Columbia House record deals where you get a hundred million albums for a penny with the agreement that you'll pay full price for another album each month for something like a hundred years or so. So she got on a Country Music kick. That's when I found myself yet unappreciatively blessed with the sounds of Ring Of Fire (I still LOVE that song, the whole country/Mexican feel with the horns and all's), Loretta Lynn, Tammy Wynette, George Jones, Glenn Campbell, Earnest Tubb, Patsy Cline and on to Skeeter Davis, and heck I can't remember 'em all.


    In the 70's I remember:
    Dolly Parton (never was much of a fan, but her amusement park in TN is fabulous)
    Bobby Bear
    Kitty Wells
    Later,
    Ray Price
    Charlie Pride


    If I keep going I'm just gonna embarrass myself if I haven't already.
