Hi - here are the lyrics.

JACKSON
Written by Gaby Rodgers and Billy Ed Wheeler
(As performed by Johnny Cash and June Carter Cash)


(Both) We got married in a fever, hotter than a pepper sprout
(Both) We've been talkin' 'bout Jackson, ever since the fire went out
(Johnny) I'm goin' to Jackson, I'm gonna mess around
(Johnny) Yeah, I'm goin' to Jackson, look out Jackson town

(June) Well, go on down to Jackson, go ahead and wreck your health
(June) Go play our hand you big-talkin' man, make a big fool of yourself
(June) Yeah, go to Jackson, go comb your hair
(Johnny): Honey, I'm gonna snowball Jackson
(June) See if I care

(Johnny) When I breeze into that city, people gonna stoop and bow
(June) Hah!
(Johnny) All them women gonna make me teach 'em what they don't know how
(Johnny) I'm goin' to Jackson, you turn-a loose-a my coat
(Johnny) 'Cause, I'm goin' to Jackson
(June) Goodbye, that's all she wrote

(June) But they'll laugh at you in Jackson
(June) And I'll be dancin' on a pony keg
(June) They'll lead you 'round town like a scalded hound
(June) With your tail tucked between your legs
(June) Yeah, go to Jackson, you big-talkin' man
(June) And I'll be waitin' in Jackson, behind my Japan Fan, well

(Both) We got married in a fever, hotter than a pepper sprout
(Both) We've been talkin' 'bout Jackson, ever since the fire went
(Both) I'm goin' to Jackson, and that's a fact
(Both) Yeah, we're goin' to Jackson, ain't never comin' back
