Johnny Cash

John R. "Johnny" Cash (February 26, 1932 – September 12, 2003), was an American singer-songwriter, actor, and author, who has been called one of the most influential musicians of the 20th century. Although he is primarily remembered as a country music icon, his songs and sound spanned many other genres including rockabilly and rock and roll—especially early in his career—as well as blues, folk, and gospel. This crossover appeal led to Cash being inducted in the Country Music Hall of Fame, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and Gospel Music Hall of Fame. more »


Many years ago in days of childhood I used to play till evening SHADOWS CAME
THEN winding down AN old familiar pathway I hear my mother call at setting sun
Come home come home it's suppertime the shadows lengthen fast
Come home come home it's suppertime we're going home at last
THROUGH THE DISTANT CLOUDS I SEE MY MOTHER
HER FACE IS SHINING BRIGHT, WITH TENDER LOVE
SHE'S GONE UP IN HEAVEN, WITH HER MAKER
AND I CAN STILL HEAR HER VOICE, FROM UP ABOVE
(AND SHE SAID)
Come home come home it's suppertime the shadows lengthen fast
Come home come home it's suppertime we're going home at last
