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 »


 The easy, fast & fun way to learn how to sing:

I do my best to hide this lowdown feelin' 
I try to make believe there's nothing wrong
But they're always asking me about you darling
And it hurts me so to tell 'em that you're gone
If they ask me I guess I'd be denyin' 
That I've been unhappy all alone
But if they heard my heart they'd hear it cryin'
Where's my darling, when's she coming home

I ask myself a million times what's right for me to do
To try to lose my blues alone or hang around for you
But I make it pretty good until that moon comes shining through
And then I get so doggone lonesome

Time stands still when you're a waitin' 
Sometimes I think my heart is stoppin' too
One lonely hour seems forever 
Sixty minutes more to wait for you
But I guess I'll keep waitin' 'til you're with me
'Cause I believe that loving you is right
But I don't care if the sun don't rise tomorrow 
If I can't have you with me tonight

Well I know I'll keep on loving you 
'Cause true love can't be killed
I ought to get you off of my mind 
But I guess I never will
I could have a dozen others 
But I know I'd love you still
'Cause I get so doggone lonesome
