Not only does Johnny Cash deliver a memorable performance of “The Junkie’s Prayer” in this video from January 6, 1971 but he also talks about drug problems of that time, a topic that he was all too familiar with.
My mind’s filled with torture my body’s in pain
But the needle is warm as it sinks in my vein
Just a matter of seconds then my mind will be free
From the coldness and darkness that dominate me
