R.I.P - Johnny Cash

I love Johnny Cash’s music. I’m sad now that’s he’s passed on. His last album, The Man Comes Around is truly excellent. For a while I’ve been buying more and more of his past catalog, realizing as I go that I really love his work. I know he had been sick for a while and with the recent passing of his wife I can only imagine what he was going through. I’m going to spin some Cash on the iPod today and keep collecting his work for the foreseeable future. He’s a talented and original artist who’s contribution to music will not easily be forgotten. I wear the black for the poor and the beaten down,
Livin’ in the hopeless, hungry side of town,
I wear it for the prisoner who has long paid for his crime,
But is there because he’s a victim of the time Ah, I’d love to wear a rainbow every day,
And tell the world that everything’s OK,
But I’ll try to carry off a little darkness on my back,
‘Till things are brighter, I’m the Man In Black
