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 »

"You know we've been on tour for about a week now
After our last recording session, and
They say ole Johnny Cash works good under pressure
Put the screws on me and I'ma screw right off Monday
Is what I'm going to do though, you know that
Tired of all that shit, really
Alright!

I tell you what, the show is being recorded, and televised
For England
And um
They said, they told me, they said, um
They said uh, you gotta do this song, you gotta do that song
You know, you gotta stand like this or act like this
They just don't get it, man, you know?
I'm here, I'm here to do what you want me to and what I want to do, ok?

So what do you wanna hear?

Alright, alright, 'I Walk The Line'"

I keep a close watch on this heart of mine
I keep my eyes wide open all the time
I keep the ends out for the tie that binds
Because you're mine
I walk the line

I find it very, very easy to be true
I find myself alone when each day is through
Yes, I'll admit that I'm a fool for you
Because you're mine
I walk the line

As sure as night is dark and day is light
I keep you on my mind both day and night
And happiness I've known proves that it's right
Because you're mine
I walk the line

You've got a way to keep me on your side
You give me 'cause for love that I can't hide
For you I know I'd even try to turn the tide
Because you're mine
I walk the line

I keep a close watch on this heart of mine
I keep my eyes wide open all the time
I keep the ends out for the tie that binds
Because you're mine
I walk the line
