Cash said it.

Whoever is unjust let him be unjust still
Whoever is righteous let him be righteous still
Whoever is filthy let him be filthy still
Listen to the words long written down
When the man comes around

There’s a man goin’ ‘round takin’ names

Johnny lived to be 71, and he rolled over a lot of hard road in those years.


  1. It's been a while since I listened to Johnny Cash; thanks for the reminder.

  2. Even though I'm more of a "rocker" (chair these days…) I always had great respect and admiration for Mr. Cash. Truly an American original, extraordinarily talented and gifted, and a friend of The Common Man.

  3. I think that his performances started out as an act. He had a very well defined brand. In the end, he became the brand. Quite a guy.

  4. I keep a close watch on this heart of mine.
    I keep my eyes wide open all the time.

    Words to live by.
