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 »

We sailed on the ship John B my grandfather and me around Nassau town we did roam
Drinking all night got into a fight well I feel so homesick I wanna go home

So hoist up the John B sail see how the mainsail sets
Call for the captain ashore let me go home

Let me go home why don't you let me go home
Well I feel so homesick I wanna go home

The first mate he got drunk broke up the people's trunk
Constable had to come and take him away

Sheriff John Stone why don't you leave me alone
Well I feel so homesick I wanna go home

Then the cook he caught the fits threw out all of my grits
Then he took and ate up all of my corn

Let me go home why don't you let me go home
Well this is the worst trip since I have been born

So hoist up the John B sail.
