From the album Crooked Path

Song clip



Johnny Cash is Gone ©2007  Michael Jerling


It still does not seem right
That Johnny Cash is gone
He was larger than life
Like some ancient warrior god
Who strode the earth ten thousand years ago

Mmm... Johnny Cash is gone

He wrestled with his demons
Deep inside a cave
He once was held in bondage
And twice his soul was saved
First by the Lord
The second time was by a woman’s love

Mmm... Johnny Cash is gone

He never lost that dangerous
Rockabilly streak
And he could flip the bird
To the powers that be
He sang the salt of the earth
And marked the sparrow’s fall

Mmm... Johnny Cash is gone

I remember him on TV
When I was a kid
I didn’t care about country music
None of my family did
Still I could see that man in black
Was the real thing

Mmm... Johnny Cash is gone

It still does not seem right
That Johnny Cash is gone
He was larger than life
Like some ancient warrior god
Who strode the earth ten thousand years ago

Mmm... Johnny Cash is gone
Mmm... Johnny Cash is gone
