I'm quite fond of the early Cash stuff, like Big River, Understand Your Man, Ring of Fire, etc. I haven't heard much of his recent offerings, but from the little I've encountered it appears he's still got it.

53. I love the song and I still perform it. Oddly enough I heard the Ian and Sylvia cover of it first. Ian Tyson did a good job, but Johnny's had more authority. It works great with a western swing tempo. I also do Get Rythmn from that time. One of these days I'll work up Hey Porter, another favorite. cheers.

Most people assume Forty Shades of Green is an irish song that's been around for ages.

But according to a book I have, "Forty Shades of Green, Words and music by Johnny Cash, Copyright 1961 by Southwind Music Inc, New York USA"

Well, Clifton53, I only know of 3 of us 53s. You, Bob and me - I'm Glenda, Bob's wife. But if there are more, let me know! Sometimes I write from work, sometimes from home.

I like Johnny Cash too. I'm struggling a bit learning to play with the Big River # because of the quick barre chord F# and straight to a B7, but I'll get there. (Tomorrow is my 6th month anniversary playing guitar.)

Clifton, I must confess my "53" stands for the yr of my birth. It was a nickname Bob gave me many years ago when we worked together and were only friends. We got married 2 years ago.

Johnny Cash songs I like include Ring of Fire and Folsum Prison but I am just starting to learn to play Ring of Fire. Folsum Prison I've been trying to learn for a while.

To Glenda in particular: re that "quick F# chord to the B7" - Cash himself plays that song with a capo on the 2nd fret, using D chord shapes... which makes it a "quick E chord leading to the A7"... and a LOT easier! Have fun Nick

Nick, Thank you. I am aware of the way to make the song easier exactly as you said. Bob and I talked about that last night, in fact. But I am using this song to help me learn those chords, and it is working. So why stop now and leave the challenge? I play a lot of songs using the capo, but this, for me, needs to be a 'stretch' time. Does that makes sense to you?

I Still Miss Someone is one of those rare C&W songs that I can identify with. And it works great with clawhammer banjo. So does Ballad of a Teenage Queen - a perfect old-time stringband tune.

Since there are so many Cash fans here, can someone supply me with the lyrics for a song called (I think) "Blue River"? I think one of the lines is something like "Roll on, you Blue River, my darling's asleep". It's definately a Carter Family-influenced song.

Can't believe this thread ! - love it

Johnny Cash wrote Forty Shades of Green prior to (or during) a visit some years back. Someone changed the words to suit a girl singer (so brawny and so brown instead of as soft as eiderdown ! etc)

No one mentioned Tennessee Flattop Box or Without Love (not to mention Ira Hayes).

Johnny Cash had a television show here in the states some years ago, when he was at his peak of popularity. I was a teen-ager and would stay home that night instead of going out with my friends. They never understood it!

He always had musical guests also, and not all mainstream country acts. I believe, though I can't recall fully, he had Bob Dylan on there.

I've always admired the way he has taken his own road.

Now folks, before I say this, I like JC> As a matter of fact, when I lived in Nashville, we lived six houses down the road in a home built by one of the guys with Dr. Hook. We were the driveway where the tour buses turned and said, "No one of any importance lives here." In any case............

Ol' John has had some duds too, or at least some stuff that I much prefer by someone else. His rendition of "Loreena" is completely flat emotionally. He made a bit of a hit for Peter LaFarge's "Ballad of Ira Hayes" that Paddy mentioned, but if you really want to hear that song, try Patrick Sky. Dylan fans may jump me here too, but the stuff on Dylan's "Nashville Skyline" like "Lay, Lady, Lay," really sucks wombat peckers. And that turn he and June did on the 30th Anniversary Dylan tribute was embarassing. Johnny sang in one key, June sang harmony in a different key and the band was playing in a third key altogether.

That said, the series of albums he is doing now is beautiful in it's simplicity and natural feel. Wonderful stuff!!

Glenda - Sure, makes perfect sense to play songs in as many keys as possible as an exercise - not to mention if you end up in a band with someone who wants to (can only!) sing Big River in Ab... !! I'm going to throw in here a gratuitous plug for the Highwaymen (Johnny Cash, Willie Nelson, Waylon Jennings and Kris Kristofferson). They only made 3 albums (which is still one more than the Traveling Wilburys), but the third in particular (The Road Goes On Forever) is one of my favorite albums. And those four, before they ever got together as a band, were my primary musical influences for MANY years... Nick

From: Tiger
Date: 27 Sep 01 - 10:29 AM

Here you are, Marc.

Ragged Old Flag - Johnny Cash

I walked through a county courthouse square,
On a park bench an old man was sitting there.
I said, "Your old courthouse is kinda run down."
He said, "Naw, it'll do for our little town."
I said, "Your old flagpole has leaned a little bit,
And that's a Ragged Old Flag you got hanging on it."

He said, "Have a seat," and I sat down.
"Is this the first time you've been to our little town?"
I said, "I think it is." He said, "I don't like to brag,
But we're kinda proud of that Ragged Old Flag.

"You see, we got a little hole in that flag there
When Washington took it across the Delaware.
And it got powder-burned the night Francis Scott Key
Sat watching it writing 'Oh, Say Can You See,'
And it got a bad rip in New Orleans
With Packingham and Jackson tuggin' at its seams.

"And it almost fell at the Alamo
Beside the Texas flag, but she waved on, though.
She got cut with a sword at Chancellorsville
And she got cut again at Shiloh Hill.
There was Robert E. Lee, Beauregard and Bragg,
And the south wind blew hard on that Ragged Old Flag.

"On Flanders Field in World War I
She got a big hole from a Bertha gun.
She turned blood red in World War II.
She hung limp and low by the time it was through.
She was in Korea and Vietnam.
She was sent where she was by her Uncle Sam.

"She waved from our ships upon the briny foam,
And now they've about quit waving her back here at home.
In her own good land here she's been abused --
She's been burned, dishonored, denied, and refused.

"And the government for which she stands
Is scandalized throughout the land.
And she's getting threadbare and wearing thin,
But she's in good shape for the shape she's in.
'Cause she's been through the fire before
And I believe she can take a whole lot more.

"So we raise her up every morning, take her down every night.
We don't let her touch the ground and we fold her up right.
On second thought, I do like to brag,
'Cause I'm mighty proud of that Ragged Old Flag."

The highway men were a true country super group. I saw them on Austin City Limits. They seemed to be so suited to each other that I suspect that one of the reasons they formed the group was that they could hang out together on the road.

WINGS IN THE MORNING
As recorded by Johnny Cash

REFRAIN:
Wings in the morning and license to fly,
Straight to the portals of never-more-die.
Never more pain in them old aching bones.
Wings in the morning to carry us home.

My grandfather lived by the book all his life,
On rich bottom land with twelve kids and a wife.
He never saw TV, nor rode a jet plane,
But he knew that heaven was holding his claim.

The salt of the earth, yet with faith in the Lord,
They all got together in that one accord.
And what could be greater than God's guarantee
That we can have heaven for e-ternity?

Rocks in the road and we stumble and fall;
Light's getting low so we don't see at all!
But I promise you, on that getting-up day,
Wings in the morning, we'll fly away.

Is this what you are looking for ?

SEPTEMBER WHEN IT COMES

There's a cross above the baby's bed,
A saviour in her dreams.
But she was not delivered then,
And the baby became me.
There's a light inside the darkened room,
A footstep on the stair.
A door that I forever close,
To leave those memories there.

So when the shadows link them,
Into an evening sun.
Well first there's summer, then I'll let you in.
September when it comes.

I plan to crawl outside these walls,
Close my eyes and see.
And fall into the heart and arms,
Of those who wait for me.
I cannot move a mountain now;
I can no longer run.
I cannot be who I was then:
In a way, I never was.

I watch the clouds go sailing;
I watch the clock and sun.
Oh, I watch myself, depending on,
September when it comes.

So when the shadows link them,
And burn away the clouds.
They will fly me, like an angel,
To a place where I can rest.
When this begins, I'll let you know,
September when it comes.

As for the featured song, it is "Thanksgiving Prayer," also known as "I'm Thanking the Lord He Made You," with words and music by Johnny Cash and Josef Anderson.

A commercially available recording of this track is not easy to come by, but I did learn of one import CD that has it: "Johnny Cash — Unsurpassed American Masters" (OTA-007).

No doubt about it - he was a great songwriter and his songs have helped me earn a living.

But what drew me to him was the 1970's. Everybody in England was going Celtic. The DADGAD guitars , the jigs and reel, the agonised quavering vocals with Walter Gabriel accents and we were told this was our lot as English folk singers and this is what we had to sing if we wanted to be welcome in English folk clubs.

And the songs......they were all about being a victim. The cruel landlord, the cruel redcoat soldier - they came round and give us a good hiding, then they transported us for doing sod all, and tomorrow we were all going to be hanged......and so it went on.

I was living in Birmingham at the time and one night I went to an Irish club - prepared for the worst, if you got asked out for dinner the inevitable background music was The Chieftains playing a 25 minute lament.

And there in this club was country music. The Showband scene had fallen apart in Ireland and there loads of brilliant Irish musicians who could play as well as any Nashville cats, playing their hearts out in the country music clubs. they all had fantastic instruments -fender tellys and fender twins. They were so good.

Inevitably they told you about their heroes who seemed to be Willie, Waylon, Moe Bandy, Johnny Paycheck - but they all loved Johnny Cash.

And you could see why. here was this voice that conveyed that epic sense of self. I am the Captain of my soul, master of my fate, hello I'm Johnny Cash. I've been knocked down by life, but I have dignity. I'm a victim but I'll bust your lip if you try to make feel like one.....thank god for Johnny Cash.

the new benefit cd - Hands Across the Water - has a nice version of Johnny's 40 Shades of Green, done by Rodney C - the lyrics on most of the net sites are wrong, but Rodney may have changed a few - but I doubt there was ever a Nashville song before or after that mentioned draining bogs or gleaning thatch!! So some confusion may be understandable.
There's also a John and Fiona Prine song and a great Cerys Matthews song in Welsh and English!! You can listen to the cd in full at CMT.com.

Of all the songs I've heard johnny Cash do I think my favourites have to be:
"A Boy Named Sue"- it's catchy, funny and shows his quirky side
"Folsom Prison Blues" - cannot believe he wrote so powerfully without having the personal experience at the time.
"Big John" - just a good ballad - corny in parts but GOOD.
"I Walk the Line" - moving

and

My absolute favourite:

"Man In Black" - says it all

BTW - I think his biography is also called "Man In Black"

To wax (maybe) controversial; I felt Joaquim Phoenix played him brilliantly in the biopic "Walk the Line" and Reese Witherspoon as June Carter was also superb. I also felt the filn portrayed him fairly honestly too - warts and all - no excuses, just - as it was.

Muttley

Haven't heard some of the others mentioned: didn't grow up un a folky family or one that appreciated Johnny Cash - but I loved his songs when they came on the radio over here (Oz) (which was, unfortunately, an infrequent occurrence.
