“Oney” – Johnny Cash Live in Australia (1973)

“Here’s a song for the working man,” Johnny Cash tells his audience in Australia before singing “Oney” during this 1973 show:

I’ve seen him in my dreams at night
And woke up in the mornin’ feelin’ tired
And old Oney don’t remember, when I came here
How he tried to get me fired
With his folded hands behind him
Every mornin’ Oney waited at the gate
Where he’d rant and rave like I committed murder
Clockin’ in five minutes late.
