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, you said you had enough
You said that you were leavin?
I said, "Shove off honey, baby, I ain't grievin'
Pack your bags and pull out this evenin?
There's a wide open road"

On Saturday mornin' you where nowhere about it
And so I searched the town but you had done pulled out
I looked north, east and west and then a leadin' south
I saw a wide open road

there's a wide open road
It?s leadin? south from my abode
If you stick around and turn your damper down
There's a wide open road

Well, the reason I was lookin? for you all over town
Was to tell you that your kitty cat is still around
And you left your weddin' ring when you went
Down that wide open road

If you gonna stay away then honey let me know
How to cook hot biscuits, how to roll a dough
Every thing's gone crazy since I told you to go
Down that wide open road

there's a wide open road
And honey, I want you to know
You can look down south or you can turn back home
And there's a wide open road
