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.

  1. I remember taping Bob’s version from the tribute show on TV and watching it over and over and over and over. I still love his version.

  2. What a great contrast to enjoy Dylan and Cash in their respective live video-version, thanks for the uploads. The Johnny Cash tribute-show, as captured in one DVD, is one of my “mostest” to recommend. Because of Dylan and also all the other friends of Cash.
