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 »

Well, there was a time on Earth when in the books of Heaven
That an Old Account was standin' for sins yet unforgiven
My name was at the top there were many things below
But I went unto the keeper and I settled it long ago

Long ago, yes long ago (I settled it all)
I said the Old Account was settled long ago
And my record's clear today, he washed my sins away
And the Old Account was settled long ago (tell em about it)

Well the Old Account was large and growin' everyday
I was always sinnin' and I never tried to pray
But when I looked ahead and saw such pain and woe
Well I thought I'd better get it settled, so I settled it long ago

Long ago, yes long ago (I settled it all)
I said the Old Account was settled long ago
And my record's clear today, he done washed my sins away
And the Old Account was settled long ago (tell em about it)

Now sinner seek the Lord, and repent of all your sins
'Cause this He commanded if we're gonna make it in
And then if you should live one hundred years below
You gonna know you got it settled 'cause you settled it long ago

Long ago, yes long ago (I settled it all)
I said the Old Account was settled long ago
And my record's clear today, he done washed my sins away
And the Old Account was settled long ago (tell em about it)
