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 »

I will drink the cup,
The poison overflowing.
I will lift you up,
Watch over where you're going.
The first one in,
The last one gone,
I'll be the rock to stand upon,
For you,
For you.

My spirit aches,
And I can't stop this river flowing.
In fear I take
Each laboured breath I draw in, knowing
That this could be my life,
My final hour.
But faith and hope and love
Give me the power,
For you,
For you.

Yea, though I walk through the valley
Of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil, for you are with me.
You are with me.

I'll be your salvation,
Though the storm's surrounding.
There are no conditions,
Lay my body down.
In the wake abandon, willing sacrifice.
I'll walk through the canyon,
Bring the shadows light.
For you,
For you.

I will drink the cup,
The poison overflowing.
I will lift you up,
Watch over where you're going.
The first one in,
The last one gone,
I'll be the rock to stand upon.
The first one in,
The last one gone,
I'll be the rock to stand upon
For you
For you
For you
For you
For you
