Lay your head upon my pillow
Hold your warm and tender body close to mine
Hear the whisper of the rain drops flowing soft against the window
And make believe you love me one more time
For the good times
Don’t miss Johnny Cash performing “It Was Jesus” during an appearance on the Town Hall Party television broadcast.
Well a man walked down by Galilee so the Holy Book does say
And a great multitude was gathered there without a thing to eat for days
Up stepped a little boy with the basket please take it Lord he said
And with just a five loaves and two little fishes five thousand had fish and bread
Who was it everybody (it was Jesus) who was it everybody (it was Jesus)
Watch Johnny Cash give a live performance of the song “You Beat All I Ever Saw” from an episode of the Johnny Cash Show.
I’ve walked though every town
Saw fortunes lost and found
And when your trail failed i walked holes
In both my soles
But i don’t expect you back
You’re somewhere making tracks
I crossed the burning bridges
And walked through miles of sand
Met the lawless and the law
But you beat all i ever saw
Check out the song “A Cup of Coffee”, a collaboration between Johnny Cash and Ramblin’ Jack Elliot.
Man it sure is good to hear you singin’ and yodelin’ and pickin’ again Jack Elliot
I been drivin’ haulin’ load of grain all day long
Got about three more hundred miles to go
And well I just dropped in to have a cup of coffee friend
Yeah I just dropped in to have a cup of coffee friend
Don’t you offer me none of that whiskey don’t need no wine
Gotta get that semi down the line
In this rare clip from The Tennessee Ernie Ford Show, Johnny Cash joins Ford for a duet of the song “Pickin Time”.
I got cotton in the bottom land
It’s up and growin’ and I got a good stand
My good wife and them kids of mine
Gonna get new shoes, come Pickin’ Time
Get new shoes come Pickin’ Time.
Ev’ry night when I go to bed
I thank the Lord that my kids are fed
They live on beans eight days and nine
Have a look at this fan-made video for Johnny Cash’s 1968 song “You And Tennessee”
Like a sweet rippling mountain stream
Goes the sound of the banjo on Cripple Creek
Never beginning never ending just rippling on and on
So does the land just ripple on and on
As a heart gets soft on a woman so can the heart get soft on the land
And to fall in love with a woman as well as the land is to surely be in love
In this video, Johnny Cash gives a live performance of the song “Sam Stone”. This song was originally performed by John Prine.
Sam Stone came home,
To his wife and family
After serving in the conflict overseas.
And the time that he served,
Had shattered all his nerves,
And left a little shrapnel in his knee.
But the morphine eased the pain,
And the grass grew round his brain,
And gave him all the confidence he lacked,
With a Purple Heart and a monkey on his back.
This fan video features Johnny Cash’s song “God Bless Robert E Lee”. This is song is about Johnny praising the Confederacy general for preventing the unnecessary loss of life.
When Robert E Lee surrended the Confederacy
Jefferson Davis was upset about it
He said how dare that man rescind an order
Form the president of the Confederate States of America
Then somebody told him that General Lee had made the decision himself
Here is Johnny Cash’s song “Five Minutes to Live”. This song was released in the year 1961 along with the movie of the same title.
What all can you give, with five minutes to live?
Hear the tock tick tock of the laughing clock.
What can you do or say?
Maybe you oughta pray.
But you better think positive.
You got five minutes to live.
