Thread Name: Video: Too Many Shadows (Jean Ritchie/kytrad)
Subject: RE: WATCH/LISTEN-Oldish Video-TooManyShadows(kytrad)
Perhaps Johnny didn't like songs with too many shadows, you know, all that dark stuff, not really his cup of tea (that is a joke)......
It is really amusing to hear you talk about humility. Everyone else on this site would kill to be able to pipe up at a party -- "Well, Johnny Cash said, so when are you going to write me a song!?" Now there is a conversation stopper. It is sort of like, "So, there I was, corresponding with Jean Ritchie about how she wrote this song for Johnny Cash....." (Folkies fall over in dead faint, clutching their hearts.)
