Lyr Req: Let Him Roll (from Johnny Cash)

Subject: Jonny Cash song
From: GUEST,Chip A.

Did anyone watch the Jonny Cash 70th birthday special on CMT last night? He sang a song about a Dallas whore and an old drunk who loved her. I didn't get the name of the song. I was blown away by this song and would really like to find the words to it. Other searches have failed me so far. Can anyone help?

Thanks,

Chip

Ah, yes. Guy refers to this type song as a "wrist slasher". It's another one that can make me cry. Even Bobby Bare did a great version of it.
