(A Tribute to Johnny Cash)
Today singers and musicians gain notoriety
But now we live in a Cash-less society
See today's music is mostly pop trash
We are missing the legend Johnny Cash
In his songs he was a teacher
He said more than most preachers
Words that sometimes warned me
The whirlwind is in the thorntree
To the arrogant he voiced a sound
He said God's gonna cut you down
If he were alive today would it be true?
Would he be banned from singing "A Boy Named Sue"?
Yes the world is missing the "Man in Black"
Substance in his songs he did not lack
And to some of his quotes I have to nod
Like "My arms are too short to box with God"
As this world continues to spiral down
Like Johnny said "the man will come around"
