Not my style or genre of music, but credit where credit is due...
Check this out.
Thanks for this Tim!!
When I was a kid my folks watched Johnny on tv and I didn’t get it.
I finally got it. A long time ago but I got it.
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
Johny cash did not just right songs about hard times he lived it . A lot of is music was about people who never had a chance
I watch the Johnny Cash show on sunday nights on one of the nostalgia channels, can't remember which one. John had all kinds of guests, not just country. I saw derek and the dominoes, ccr, roy orbison among others, not to mention Jerry Reed and Glen Campbell.
Thanks to this thread me and the Mrs. just fired up our copy of “Walk The Line”.
I really love Johnny Cash. he´s not only the ultimate outlaw, he is THE man in black. big fan here.
Yes he's cool.
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)
If I keep going I'm just gonna embarrass myself if I haven't already.
The man, the Legend!! Amazing...happy birthday Johnny!
