CASH

Read the story behind the song — “Remembering Johnny Cash”
Enter to win a Johnny Cash portrait here.

Country boy was fishin’
Jack cut wood in two
Jack went off to heaven
J. R. was torn in two

He grew to be a legend
Two men inside of one
One man was a good boy
The other played with guns

One was dressed in robes of white
One was the man in black
One man he called Johnny
The other man he called Cash

One man tore up Vivian
One loved June so fine
One man was a ring of fire
The other walked the line

One sang the blues in Folsom
One, “Just as I am”
One man loved his demons
The other, Billy Graham

One was dressed in robes of white
One was the man in black
One man he called Johnny
The other man he called Cash

One man would give you anything
Down to his last shirt
The other, he would let you down
He would make you hurt

One met Jack in heaven
On the day he died
‘Cause he had been forgiven
The other, crucified

One was dressed in robes of white
One was the man in black
One man he called Johnny
The other man he called Cash
