Check out https://www.facebook.com/jcinfocenter for an awesome Johnny Cash page and http://www.johnny-cash-infocenter.com/ for an equally awesome website! Johnny Cash at the top of his game, right after his comeback with Rick Rubin. There are dozens of clips on Youtube, but to really get the feeling of a concert, I feel it's necessary to put up the whole thing.

"The Wabash Cannonball" is an American folk song about a fictional train, thought to have originated in the late nineteenth century. Its first documented appearance was on sheet music published in 1882, titled "The Great Rock Island Route" and credited to J. A. Roff. All subsequent versions contain a variation of the chorus: Now listen to the jingle, and the rumble, and the roar, As she dashes thro' the woodland, and speeds along the shore, See the mighty rushing engine, hear her merry bell ring out, As they speed along in safety, on the "Great Rock-Island Route." A rewritten version by William Kindt appeared in 1904 under the title "Wabash Cannon Ball". The Carter Family made one of the first recordings of the song in 1929, though it was not released until 1932. Another popular version was recorded by Roy Acuff in 1936. It is a signature song of the Stephen F. Austin State University Lumberjack Marching Band, the Kansas State University Marching Band, the University of Texas Longhorn Band, and of the Indiana State University Marching Sycamores, as ISU is close to the Wabash River. It was also used as the theme song by the USS Wabash (AOR5). The song "The Wabash Cannonball" is part of the The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame's 500 Songs that Shaped Rock and Roll list In addition to The Carter Family's 1929 recording and Roy Acuff's 1936 recording, many hillbilly artists recorded "The Wabash Cannonball" during the Great Depression era of the 1930s and 1940s. Bing Crosby recorded the song for his album "Bing Crosby Sings The Great Country Hits". The song increased in popularity during this time. In the wake of the song's popularity, the Wabash Railroad named its express run between Detroit and St. Louis as the Wabash Cannon Ball in 1949, the only actual train to bear the name, which it carried until discontinued in 1971. However, the train was named after the song, not the other way around. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wabash_Cannonball

My favorite Waylon concert. I do not own the copyright of this recording. I strongly recommend the original, high quality DVD for optimum enjoyment. With his great voice, hard-driving music and charismatic stage persona, Waylon Jennings (1937-2002) was one of country music’s biggest stars, and arguably its most naturally gifted. Born into small-town poverty in West Texas, music was his passion from a young age. Having started playing the guitar at eight, by his early teens he was playing in bands. After leaving school at 14, he worked for a few years picking cotton and in various other menial jobs, and then moved to the nearby city of Lubbock, where he got a job as a radio D.J. While working there he met Lubbock-born Buddy Holly, who, though only a year older than Waylon, was already one of the biggest names in popular music. They became good friends and soon Waylon was playing (bass) in Buddy’s touring band. In the middle of a gruelling three-week winter tour by bus with several other big-name performers, Buddy chartered a small plane to fly him and some of the others to the next stop on the tour. Waylon was supposed to be on the flight but he gave up his seat to J.P. “The Big Bopper” Richardson, who had a bad cold. When Buddy learned of this, he joked with Waylon, saying he hoped the bus froze up on the way, with Waylon joking that he hoped Buddy’s plane crashed. It did, killing all on board. Waylon would remain deeply affected by this event for the rest of his life. Throughout the 1960s, Waylon released several successful albums and established lifelong friendships with Johnny Cash (with whom he shared an apartment in Nashville) and Willie Nelson, as well as touring extensively. His music at this time was veering away from the staid traditions of the country genre, and by the early 1970s, rebelling against the sterile conventions of the Nashville studio system, which favored a MOR sound with slick session musicians and syrupy strings, Waylon demanded and won the contractual freedom to record using his own touring band, playing the rough-edged, rock-influenced music they had been playing night after night in packed honky tonks all over the country. The result was a revolution in country music, generally dubbed “The Outlaw Movement”, though Waylon was not fond of the label. There followed years of superstardom, chart-topping albums, cocaine addiction (with a comically unsuccessful attempt by the DEA to bust him), bankruptcy, almost constant touring, collaboration with his long-time friends and fellow ‘outlaws’, Johnny Cash, Willie Nelson and Kris Kristofferson (The Highwaymen), TV work, and perhaps the best autobiography of a popular music artist ever written (actually, co-written, but it’s Waylon’s authentic voice throughout). This concert, recorded in 1989 for the long-running American TV music program, Austin City Limits, shows Waylon at his full-on best. It also features the legendary pedal steel guitar player, Ralph 'Moon' Mooney, and Waylon's wife, country singer Jessi Colter. Ya'll say you're ready?

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ME9XpnQiU-8 And I heard as it were the noise of thunder One of the four beasts saying come and see and I saw And behold a white horse There's a man going around taking names And he decides who to free and who to blame Everybody won't be treated all the same There'll be a golden ladder reaching down When the Man comes around The hairs on your arm will stand up At the terror in each sip and in each sup Will you partake of that last offered cup? Or disappear into the potter's ground When the Man comes around Hear the trumpets, hear the pipers One hundred million angels singing Multitudes are marching to the big kettledrum Voices calling, voices crying Some are born and some are dying It's Alpha and Omega's kingdom come And the whirlwind is in the thorn tree The virgins are all trimming their wicks The whirlwind is in the thorn tree It's hard for thee to kick against the pricks Till Armageddon no shalam, no shalom Then the father hen will call his chickens home The wise man will bow down before the throne And at His feet they'll cast their golden crowns When the Man comes around 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 Hear the trumpets, hear the pipers One hundred million angels singing Multitudes are marching to the big kettledrum Voices calling and voices crying Some are born and some are dying It's Alpha and Omega's kingdom come And the whirlwind is in the thorn tree The virgins are all trimming their wicks The whirlwind is in the thorn tree It's hard for thee to kick against the pricks In measured hundred weight and penney pound When the Man comes around. Close (Spoken part) And I heard a voice in the midst of the four beasts And I looked and behold, a pale horse And his name that sat on him was Death And Hell followed with him.
