Thread Name: Obit: Johnny Cash passes (1932-2003)
Subject: RE: Obit: Johnny Cash passes
Man, I remember hearing "Walkin' the Blues" and "Tennessee Flat Top Box" years ago and driving down a deserted dirt road heavily wooded and Johnny's on NPR singing about taking a car home piece by piece. I remember him from my early boyhood with his television program. I remember listening to "Ring of Fire" after I saw lyrics in Zap Comix--the Checkered Demon. My southern neighbor used to play his music all the time when I was like 6 or 7. I dug what he was doing even then.

Man, he's tough to lose.
