Thread Name: Lyr Add: Jackson (Jerry Leiber & Billy Edd Wheeler
Subject: RE: 'Jackson' (Cash/Carter) lyrics
That may be pretty significant, Joe, since he wrote the song (with Jerry Leiber, I gather). Maybe June deviated from what it was originally.

I've also just learned that the pronunciation of Japan, MO, was "ja-PAN" before WWII, but was changed to "JAY-pan" at that time and remains so today.

It's looking like my perceptions were inaccurate, though I'll happily share the blame with June Carter's inaccurate diction. :-)
