I like Johnny Cash’s songs. Because he’s not trying to cover up. Writes real stuff.
~Bob Dylan (Izzy Young’s Notebooks – Oct 1961)
Shown as part of The Johnny Cash tribute show at the Hammerstein Ballroom in New York City 6 April 1999.
Hey Johnny, I wanna say Hi and I’m sorry we can’t be there, but that’s just the way it is. I wanna sing you one of your songs about trains. I used to sing this song before I ever wrote a song and I also wanna thank you for standing up for me way back when.
