Thread Name: Obit: Johnny Cash passes (1932-2003)
Subject: Add: mp3 link September
I am sorry I didn't get this up, earlier. It is a farewell song by Johnny called "September."I think it is Roseanne singing at a concert in Portland with Johnny's part dubbed into the concert, if I remember correctly. I'll check with my friend and find out. It is doubly poignant for its name and his passing in this month of early autumn. Listen to the words, they are beautiful, as is the singing...

Johnny sings:

I plan to crawl outside these walls, close my eyes and see
And fall into the hearts and arms of those who wait for me...
I cannot move a mountain now, I can no longer run
I cannot be who I was then, in a way I never was.

When the shadows lengthen and burn away the past
They will fly me like an angel to a place where I can rest.
When this begins, I'll let you in...September when it comes.
