Subject: RE: Johnny Cash Songs

Big River. I see mentioned above that someone was working on the F#7 to B7 transition. I'm not sure how well known this is, but Johnny also played another chord in this song that doesn't normally appear in tabs online. It's at the end of each verse.

When that e string 3-3-3-0 riff at the end of each verse is played, (and when that phrase is played in the solo) he plays an interesting G / E like chord, where he puts his ring finger on the third fret of the E and plays this E/G chord. (E with a G bass, to coincide with the note of the riff).

I hope I'm describing it right.

I've been a huge fan of Johnny's for years. He has been a tremendous influence on my music.

This song was mentioned by James on 20-Oct-2003:


NEXT IN LINE
Words and music by Johnny Cash
As recorded by Johnny Cash as a single (Sun 266, 1957)

The next in line will be someone who loves you.
The next in line is me, 'cause it's my time.
Now how long will it be
Till you end my misery?
You better be prepared to linger when you get to me.

The time has come for you to love me, if you ever are.
Come to me now, so I can make you mine.
I watched them rush to you so fast.
I waited so I'd be the last.
It's my time 'cause I'm the next in line.

The next in line will want your love forever.
The next in line is me and here I am.
Give me a day or two
And I'll get through to you.
You'd 'a' been my baby long ago, if you'd turned down a few.

This ol' heart can't take much more waitin' for your love.
I'm tired and we're runnin' short o' time.
I'll make you love me more
Than ev'ryone before.
My time to try 'cause I'm the next in line.

I stood and watched you take their hearts and break 'em one by one.
My time was comin', so I waited while you had your fun.
Now I'm through a-waitin' way behind.
It's my time 'cause I'm the next in line.

FAIR WEATHER FRIENDS
Words and music by Joseph Allen & John R. Cash.
As recorded by Johnny Cash on "The Adventures of Johnny Cash" (1982)

CHORUS: Fair-weather friends, fair-weather sailors
Will leave you stranded on life's shore,
But one true friend who really loves you
Is worth the pain your heart endures.

1. We never know which way the wind will blow
Nor when and where the next turmoil will be,
But he's a solid rock in trouble's flow
And he holds out a saving hand for me. CHORUS

2. He'll be your shelter in the night.
He'll be an anchor in the storm.
When you can't find your way, he'll be your light.
In the chilly wind of doubt, he'll keep you warm. CHORUS TWICE

From: Jim Dixon

This song was mentioned by Black Hawk on 08-Apr-2007:


WHAT DO I CARE
Words and music by Johnny Cash
As recorded by Johnny Cash as a single (Columbia 4-41251, 1958)

When I'm all through, if I haven't been what they think I should be,
If the total isn't high enough when they figure me,
When I grow old, if there's no gray from worry in my hair,
What do I care? What do I care?

[§] What do I care, just as long as you were mine a little while?
When the road was long and weary, you gave me a few good mile.
What do I care if I miss a goal because I make a slip?
I'll still be satisfied because I tasted your sweet lips.

What do I care if I never have much money?
And sometimes my table looks a little bare?
Anything that I may miss is made up for each time we kiss.
You love me and I love you, so what do I care?

[Repeat from §.]

This song was mentioned by fumblefingers on 09-Mar-2007:


SMILING BILL MCCALL
Words and music by Johnny Cash
As recorded by Johnny Cash as a single (Columbia 4-41618, 1960)

Well, the whole town listened to the radio
For the Smilin' Bill McCall Show.
Ev'ryone in Nashville
Was listenin' to Bill.

"I don't want to be layin' in bed
When they pronounce me dead."

He'd stand and breathe in the microphone
With his guitar hangin' to his knee bone.
All the girls just sat and dreamed
When Bill began to sing.

"I don't want my hat to be hung
When my last song is sung."

But he never let fame go to his head
"This is Smilin' Bill McCall," he said.
"Gonna pick and sing a song or two
Y'all listen till I'm through.

"And if you're at the house or in your car,
Tune in this time tomorr'."

To all the boys he was a big hero.
They'd glue their ears to the radio,
Then talk in a most unusual drawl
Imitatin' Bill McCall.

"Daddy, can I get me a guitar?
'Cause I want to be a star."

The girls would say of Bill McCall:
"Why, I bet he's over six feet tall.
Handsomest man in Nashville!"
They said of Smilin' Bill.

He won't be plantin' potato slips
When he cashes in his chips.

Then one day Bill didn't make the show.
Didn't even show up for a week or so.
The station's boss said to City Hall:
"Find Smilin' Bill McCall."

It won't be hard to track him down.
He's got the biggest feet in town.

Well, there's a creek that runs through Nashville
And on the bank they found Smilin' Bill.
He's committin' suicide,
But they grabbed him 'fore he tried.

"Turn me loose, I'm 'onna jump," he screamed,
"'Cause I can't stand that theme.

"Let this be my final breath,
'Cause I'm scared to half to death."

The big brave Smilin' Bill McCall
Is only four feet tall.

"I'd rather be in the river dead
Than to hear 'em laughin' at my bald head."

Subject: Lyr Add: MEAN EYED CAT (Johnny Cash)
From: Jim Dixon
Date: 08 Dec 19 - 01:03 PM

This song was mentioned by fumblefingers on 09-Mar-2007:


MEAN EYED CAT
Words and music by Johnny Cash
As recorded by Johnny Cash on "Sings Hank Williams and Other Favorite Tunes" (1960)

1. I give my woman half my money at the gen'ral store.
I said: "Now buy a little groceries and don't spend no more."
Then she paid ten dollars for a ten-cent hat
And got some store-bought cat food for her mean-eyed cat.
When I give her ten more dollars for a one-way ticket,
She was mad as she could be.
Then I bet ten more that if she ever left,
She'd come a-crawlin' back to me.

2. When I woke up this mornin' and I turned my head,
There wasn't a cotton-pickin' thing on her side of the bed.
I found a little old note where her head belonged.
It said: "Dear John, honey, baby, I'm long gone."
When I heard a whistle blowin' and the big wheels a-turnin',
I was scared as I could be.
I put on my overalls and I headed for town.
I'm gonna bring her back with me.

3. I asked the man down at the station if he had seen her there.
I told him all about her pretty eyes and long blonde hair.
He spit his tobacco, said: "I'll be dad-blamed.
I b'lieve I did see her leavin' on the east-bound train."
I bought a round-trip ticket on the east-bound train.
I was broke as I could be,
But when I come back, I got to buy another ticket,
Gonna bring her back with me.

4. Well, I got off the train somewhere in Arkansas,
And I worked up the guts to call my mother-in-law.
She said: "I'll tell you where she is, if you act right.
She's workin' four-to-twelve at Trucker's World tonight."
Well, when I walked in, she saw me and she took off her apron
And she grabbed her goin'-home hat.
She bought a ticket with her tips. Now we're curled up on the sofa,
Me and her and that mean-eyed cat.


[The recording on "Sings Hank Williams and Other Favorite Tunes" omits verse 4. The recording on "American II: Unchained" omits the second half of verse 1.]

This song was mentioned by Muttley on 16-Feb-2007:


MAN IN BLACK
Words and music by Johnny Cash
As recorded by Johnny Cash on "Man in Black" (1971)

Well, you wonder why I always dress in black,
Why you never see bright colors on my back,
And why does my appearance seem to have a somber tone?
Well, there's a reason for the things that I have on.

I wear the black for the poor and the beaten down,
Livin' in the hopeless, hungry side o' town.
I wear it for the prisoner who has long paid for his crime
But is there because he's a victim of the times.

I wear the black for those who've never read
Or listened to the words that Jesus said
About the road to happiness through love and charity.
Why, you'd think He's talkin' straight to you and me.

Well, we're doin' mighty fine, I do suppose,
In our streak o' lightnin' cars and fancy clothes,
But just so we're reminded of the ones who are held back,
Up front there ought to be a man in black.

I wear it for the sick and lonely old,
For the reckless ones whose bad trip left them cold.
I wear the black in mournin' for the lives that could have been.
Each week we lose a hundred fine young men.

And, I wear it for the thousands who have died
Believin' that the Lord was on their side.
I wear it for another hundred thousand who have died
Believin' that we all were on their side.

Well, there's things that never will be right, I know,
And things need changin' ev'rywhere you go,
But till we start to make a move to make a few things right,
You'll never see me wear a suit of white.

Ah, I'd love to wear a rainbow ev'ry day
And tell the world that ev'rything's okay,
But I'll try to carry off a little darkness on my back.
Till things are brighter, I'm the Man In Black.

WALKING THE BLUES
Words and music by Johnny Cash and Robert Lunn
As recorded by Johnny Cash on "The Legend" (2005)

Well I went down the store; I got some brand-new shoes.
I told 'em: "Make the leather tough; I gotta walk the blues."

CHORUS: Walkin the blues, I'm walkin the blues all day, all day long,
I'm wearin' out my shoes but I'm walkin' the blues away.

Well my baby's got a heart like a cold north wind.
I walk until I find 'er, bring 'er back again.

CHORUS: I'm walkin' the blues....

Well, now, the man down at the station, he won't even talk.
He said: "If you ain't got no money, boy, then you gotta walk."

CHORUS: That's why I'm walkin' the blues....

GOIN' BY THE BOOK
Words and music by Chester Lester
As recorded by Johnny Cash on "The Mystery of Life" (1990)

You can see it in the movies and the paper and the TV news.
Somebody's army is always on the move.
There's gonna be a battle; the lines have been drawn; they got guns an' tanks an' planes.
The wells have gone dry and the water is bad and the air is acid rain.

There's war after war and rumors of war from the east.
There's a rumblin' in the ground and they're talkin' about the beast.
Good mothers cry 'cause the rivers run high with the blood of too many sons.
Some people say peace is on the way, but the worst is still to come.

CHORUS: 'Cause the prophets wrote about it and Jesus spoke about it and John got to take a look.
And he told us what he saw and it's easy to see it's goin' by the book.
It's goin' by the book.

There's armies in the cities and the missiles stand ready for flight.
A pale horse rides like the wind across the night.
And that rumblin' in the desert like thunder gettin' closer are the trumpets gettin' ready to blow.
There's gonna be a shout that'll wake the dead; we better be ready to go. CHORUS

This song was quoted by kendall on 26-Sep-2001, although he didn't know the title:


HANK AND JOE AND ME
Words and music by Johnny Cash
As recorded by Johnny Cash on "Songs of Our Soil" (1959)

In the desert where we searched for gold,
The days are hot; the nights are cold.
Hank and Joe and me walked on
So bold and brave and free.
For days and days, we fought the heat.
I got so thirsty and I got so weak,
And when I fell 'cause I couldn't go,
I heard Hank say to Joe:

"He's dyin' (dyin', dyin')
For water.
Hear him cryin' (cryin', cryin')
For water.

"Well, lay him down in the dust and sand."
He said, "Joe, you know he's a dyin' man.
Leave him there and let him die.
I can't stand to hear him cry
For water.
I don't remember how long I lay,
But when I awoke, it was the break of day.
Buzzards circled miles ahead.
I knew Hank and Joe were dead.
My eyes were dimmed but I could see
A bed of gold nuggets under me.
Now I know that it won't be long
Till they decorate my bones.

'Cause I'm dyin' (dyin', dyin')
For water.
Can't help cryin' (cryin', cryin')
For water.

Well, they laid me down in the dust and sand.
He said: "Joe, you know he's a dyin' man.
Leave him there and let him die.
I can't stand to hear him cry
For water."
He couldn't stand to hear me cry
For water.

OLD APACHE SQUAW
Words and music by Johnny Cash
As recorded by Johnny Cash on "Songs of Our Soil" (1959)

Old Apache squaw, how many long lean years you saw?
How many bitter winter nights shiverin' in a cold tepee, shiverin' in a cold tepee?
Old Apache squaw, how many hungry kids you saw?
How many bloody warriors runnin' to the sea, fleein' to the sea?

Well, now they tell me that you saw Cochise
When he made his last stand.
He said: "The next white man that sees my face
Is gonna be a dead white man."

Old Apache squaw, how many broken hearts you saw?
Have you had misty eyes for years?
Could that mist be tears? Could that mist be tears?

Well, now they tell me that you saw Cochise
When he made his last stand
He said, "The next white man that sees my face
Is gonna be a dead white man"

Old Apache squaw, how many broken hearts you saw?
You've had misty eyes for years.
Could that mist be tears? Could that mist be tears?
Old Apache squaw.

WITHOUT LOVE
Words and music by Nick Lowe
As recorded by Johnny Cash on "Rockabilly Blues" (1981)

Without love, I am half human.
Without love, I'm all machine.
Without love, there's nothin' doin'.
I will die without love.
Without love, I am an island all by myself in a heartbreak sea.
Without love, there's no denyin' I am dyin' without love.
For there is nowhere I can run and there is no hidin' place,
Stickin' out like a sore thumb by that gloomy look upon my face.
Without love, I'm incomplete.
Without love, I am not whole.
Without love, I'm barely on my feet.
I am dyin' without love.

For there is nowhere I can run.
I am dyin' without love.

BALLAD OF A TEENAGE QUEEN
Words and music by Jack Clement
As recorded by Johnny Cash as a single, (Sun 283, 1958).

(Dream on, dream on, teenage queen,
Prettiest girl we've ever seen.)

There's a story in our town
Of the prettiest girl around—
Golden hair and eyes of blue.
How those eyes could flash at you!
(How those eyes could flash at you!)
Boys hung 'round her by the score,
But she loved the boy next door
Who worked at the candy store.
(Dream on, dream on, teenage queen,
Prettiest girl we've ever seen.)

She was tops in all, they said;
Never once went to her head.
She had everything, it seemed;
Not a care, this teenage queen.
(Not a care, this teenage queen.)
Other boys could offer more,
But she loved the boy next door
Who worked at the candy store.
(Dream on, dream on, teenage queen.
You should be a movie queen.)

He would marry her next spring,
Saved his money, bought a ring.
Then one day a movie scout
Came to town to take her out.
(Came to town to take her out.)
Hollywood could offer more,
So she left the boy next door
Workin' at the candy store.
(Dream on, dream on, teenage queen.
See you on the movie screen.)

Very soon she was a star,
Pretty house and shiny car,
Swimmin' pool and a fence around,
But she missed her old home town.
(But she missed her old home town.)
All the world was at her door,
All except the boy next door
Who worked at the candy store.
(Dream on, dream on, teenage queen,
Saddest girl we've ever seen.)

Then one day the teenage star
Sold her house and all her cars,
Gave up all her wealth and fame,
Left it all and caught a train.
(Left it all and caught a train.)
Do I have to tell you more?
She came back to the boy next door
Who worked at the candy store.
(Now this story has some more.
You'll hear it at the candy store.)

I WALK THE LINE

As recorded by Johnny Cash on "I Walk the Line" (1964)

I keep a close watch on this heart of mine.
I keep my eyes wide open all the time.
I keep the ends out for the tie that binds.
Because you're mine, I walk the line.

I find it very, very easy to be true.
I find myself alone when each day's through.
Yes, I'll admit that I'm a fool for you.
Because you're mine, I walk the line.

As sure as night is dark and day is light,
I keep you on my mind both day and night,
And happiness I've known proves that it's right.
Because you're mine, I walk the line.

You've got a way to keep me on your side.
You give me cause for love that I can't hide.
For you I know I'd even try to turn the tide.
Because you're mine, I walk the line.

I keep a close watch on this heart of mine.
I keep my eyes wide open all the time.
I keep the ends out for the tie that binds.

DRIVE ON
Words and music by Johnny Cash
As recorded by Johnny Cash as a single (American 7-18091, 1994)

1. Well, I got a friend named Whiskey Sam.
He was my boonie-rat buddy for a year in 'Nam.
He said: "I think my country got a little off track.
Took 'em twenty-five years to welcome me back,
But it's better than not comin' back at all.
Many a good man I saw fall,
And even now, ev'ry time I dream,
I hear the men and the monkeys in the jungle scream."

CHORUS: Drive on; it don't mean nothin'.
My children love me, but they don't understand,
An' I got a woman who knows her man.
Drive on; it don't mean nothin'.
It don't mean nothin'; drive on.

2. Well, I remember one night, Tex and me
Rappelled in on a hot LZ.
We had our sixteens on rock 'n' roll,
And with all o' that fire, I was scared 'n' cold.
I was crazy, and I was wild,
And I have seen the tiger's smile.
I spit in a bamboo viper's face,
And I'd be dead but by God's grace. CHORUS

3. It was a slow walk in a sad rain,
And nobody tried to be John Wayne.
I came home, but Tex did not,
And I can't talk about the hit he got,
But I got a little limp now when I walk,
And I got a little tremolo when I talk,
But my letter read from Whiskey Sam:
You're a walkin' talkin' miracle from Vietnam. CHORUS

DON'T TAKE YOUR GUNS TO TOWN
Words and music by Johnny Cash
As recorded by Johnny Cash as a single (Columbia 4-41313, 1958)

1. A young cowboy named Billy Joe grew restless on the farm,
A boy filled with wanderlust who really meant no harm.
He changed his clothes and shined his boots and combed his dark hair down,
And his mother cried as he walked out:

CHORUS: "Don't take your guns to town, son.
Leave your guns at home, Bill.
Don't take your guns to town."

2. He laughed and kissed his mom and said: "Your Billy Joe's a man.
I can shoot as quick and straight as anybody can,
But I wouldn't shoot without a cause; I'd gun nobody down."
But she cried again as he rode away: CHORUS

3. He sang a song as on he rode; his guns hung at his hips.
He rode into a cattle town, a smile upon his lips.
He stopped and walked into a bar and laid his money down,
But his mother's words echoed again: CHORUS

4. He drank his first strong liquor then to calm his shakin' hand,
And tried to tell himself at last he had become a man.
A dusty cowpoke at his side began to laugh him down,
And he heard again his mother's words: CHORUS

5. Filled with rage, then Billy Joe reached for his gun to draw,
But the stranger drew his gun and fired before he even saw.
As Billy Joe fell to the floor, the crowd all gathered 'round
And wondered at his final words: CHORUS

CHORUS 1: Hey, get rhythm when you get the blues.
Come on, get rhythm when you get the blues.
Get a rock 'n' roll feelin' in your bones,
Put taps on your toes and get gone.
Get rhythm when you get the blues.

1. A little shoeshine boy he never gets lowdown,
But he's got the dirtiest job in town.
Bendin' low at the people's feet
On the windy corner of a dirty street.
Well, I asked him while he shined my shoes,
How'd he keep from gettin' the blues.
He grinned as he raised his little head.
He popped a shoeshine rag and then he said:

CHORUS 2: Get rhythm when you get the blues.
Come on, get rhythm when you get the blues.
A jumpy rhythm makes you feel so fine.
It'll shake all your trouble from your worried mind.
Get rhythm when you get the blues.

Come on, get rhythm when you get the blues.
Get a rock 'n' roll feelin' in your bones,
Put taps on your toes and get gone.
Get rhythm when you get the blues.

2. Well, I sat down to listen to the shoeshine boy,
And I thought I was gonna jump for joy.
Slapped on the shoe polish left and right,
He took his shoeshine rag and he held it tight.
He stopped once to wipe the sweat away.
I said: "You're mighty little, boy, to be a-workin' that way."
He said: "I like it" with a big wide grin,
Kept on a-poppin' and he'd say it again:

CHORUS 3: Get rhythm when you get the blues.
Come on, get rhythm when you get the blues.
It only costs a dime, just a nickel a shoe.
It does a million dollars worth o' good for you.
Get rhythm when you get the blues.

THE BALLAD OF FORTY DOLLARS
Words and music by Tom T. Hall
As recorded by Johnny Cash & Waylon Jennings on "Heroes" (1986)

The man that preached the fun'ral said it really was a simple way to die.
He laid down to rest one afternoon and never opened up his eyes.
They hired me an' Fred an' Joe to dig the grave and carry up some chairs.
It took us seven hours, and I guess we must have drunk a case of beer.

Well, I guess I ought to go and watch 'em put him down, but I don’t own a suit.
And anyway, when they start talkin' 'bout the fire in hell, I get spooked.
So let’s just sit here in the truck, and act like we don’t know him when they pass.
Anyway, when they're all through, we got to go to work and mow the grass.

Here they come, and who’s that ridin' in that big old shiny limousine?
Look at all that chrome! I do believe that that’s the sharpest thing I've seen.
That must belong to his rich uncle; someone said he owned a big old farm.
When they get parked, let’s mosey down and look it over; that won’t do no harm.

That must be the widow in the car, and won’t you take a look at that?
That sure is a pretty dress; you know some women do look good in black.
He’s not even in the ground, and they tell me his truck is up for sale.
They say she took it pretty hard, but you can’t tell too much behind a veil.

Listen, ain't that pretty when a bugler plays the military taps?
Yeah, I think that when you's in the war, they always hide and play a song like that.
Well, here we are, and there he goes, and I guess that you might call it our bad luck.
I hope he rests in peace, but the trouble is, the feller owes us forty bucks.

I am a huge fan of Johnny Cash. My favourites of his early stuff are "Come In Stranger" b/w "(I Don't Like It But I) Guess Things Happen That Way". I prefer his Sun recordings to much of what he did at Columbia. He did do an album Called Ride This Train, which was wonderful, it was on Columbia. I don't think it has ever been released as a CD.
He did some grand things late in his career, best cover of Leonard Cohen's Bird on a Wire. A real American legend.

I’ve been hearing this on TV commercials for Volkswagen lately. It was unfamiliar to me. It was also played at the end of today’s episode of “This American Life.” The episode, number 688, was called “The Out Crowd” and was about asylum-seekers and the new obstacles put in their way by the Trump administration.


THESE ARE MY PEOPLE
Words and music by Jonny Cash
As recorded by Johnny Cash on “America: A 200-Year Salute in Story & Song” (1972)

These are my people.
This is the land where my forefathers lie.
These are my people.
In brotherhood, we’re heirs of a creed to live by,
A creed that proclaims
That by loved ones’ bloodstains
This is my land
And these are my people.

These are my people.
They were born on and live by the land.
These are my people,
And their cities were raised by hard-working hands
And their faces do tell
That they’re holding on well
To this their land.
Yes, these are my people.

These are my people.
These are the ones who will reach for the stars.
These are my people.
By the light of the earth you can tell they are ours—
A new step to take
And a new day will break,
For this my land,
Yes, these are my people.

(spoken) These are my people.
(hums rest of verse)
(fade)

[Not to be confused with other songs with the same title. One was written by Cliff Arquette and Charles G. Dant and recorded by Arquette under his persona "Charlie Weaver." One was written by Walter Colwell and Paul Murphy and was part of the "Up with People" repertoire. One was written by Dave Berg and Rivers Rutherford and recorded by Rodney Atkins. There are more.]

I love Johnny Cash's singing and thought the "Luther Perkins sound" of the muffled bass strings was pure genius. Luther's quote, "Other people are looking for the notes - I've found them!" is wonderful.
I only have one beef. "The Rebel – Johnny Yuma" is terrible. It sounds as if it was the theme song for a TV series perhaps.
Can anyone enlighten me please?

Of all the songs I've heard Johnny Cash do I think my favourites have to be:
"A Boy Named Sue"- it's catchy, funny and shows his quirky side
"Folsom Prison Blues" - cannot believe he wrote so powerfully without having the personal experience at the time.
"Big John" - just a good ballad - corny in parts but GOOD.
"I Walk the Line" - moving

and

My absolute favourite:

"Man in Black" - says it all

BTW - I think his biography is also called "Man In Black"

To wax (maybe) controversial; I felt Joaquim Phoenix played him brilliantly in the biopic "Walk the Line" and Reese Witherspoon as June Carter was also superb. I also felt the film portrayed him fairly honestly too - warts and all - no excuses, just - as it was.

Muttley

Haven't heard some of the others mentioned: didn't grow up un a folky family or one that appreciated Johnny Cash - but I loved his songs when they came on the radio over here (Oz) (which was, unfortunately, an infrequent occurrence.

Another fave is Walking the Blues. I also love Piece By Piece [One Piece at a Time]--about the Detroit autoworker who smuggles an entire automobile home under his jacket by walking out every day with a different piece and assembling them when he got home. Great hard drivin country or is it rockabilly or is there any difference??
