Review about Johnny Cash songs
writer | Reviewer: judy ball
    ------ About the song Lay Me Down In Dixie performed by Johnny Cash

Lyricist: These are the original lyrics...Joel & I were sitting around the table one night and I asked for a Johnny Cash rhythm. All I needed was that and every time I got stuck, he would hit another chord and the words just flowed. Just in case anyone reads this, you can't have a better composer than Joel Sonnier!

The Best version of "The Devil's Right Hand"! | Reviewer: Chris Williamson
    ------ About the song Devil's Right Hand performed by Johnny Cash

This song has been recorded by several artists, Waylon Jennings, Steve Earle, and even "The Highwaymen" but Johnny Cash's solo version is by far the best. The simple reason is Johnny got the beat right. This is an unusually metered song and none of the other versions get the same rhythm that Johnny gets from the very first beat. The guitar accompaniment is also superlative to the other versions (the lead guitarist set the aforementioned beat...) Johnny has a long history of "Young Man With A Gun" songs dating back to his third single in 1955 "Folsom Prison Blues" ("When I was just a baby my mama told me "Son, always be a good boy don't ever play with guns", But I shot a man in Reno, just to watch him die...") and "Don't Take Your Guns To Town." This possibly more than any other theme ran through his career (Even "Deliah" on American I was in this vein.) So to hear this version by the master of the genre is no surprise. All the other versions are on Youtube so make your own comparisons and see if my analysis is correct!

Worst Message for Girls Ever | Reviewer: Bob Nix
    ------ About the song Ballad Of A Teenage Queen performed by Johnny Cash

This song may be the worst message ever for girls. The 'teenage queen' leaves her small home town to pursue a career at which she is a success, and achieves the American Dream, with the accompanying money, house, and in this case even fame. She is in love with the 'boy next door' (and we have to assume by the conclusion that he is in love with her as well), and instead of having him leave his crappy minimum-wage candy store job to join her in her success, the teenage queen gives up on her successful career and all the material gains which came with it and goes home to join the boy next door in his minimum-wage mediocrity. Seriously? "Girls, give up on your dreams so you can play a supporting role to your ambition-less do-nothing boyfriends." Why? "Your career and accomplishments mean nothing. Only a man can provide for a family." Seriously, this message was terrible even in '58 when it was a hit.

IS THIS WHAT THEY FOUGHT FOR? | Reviewer: Larry Silverstein
    ------ About the song Remember The Alamo performed by Johnny Cash

WHO IS AMERICA'S GREATEST ENEMY?

55,000 Americans died in the "foxholes" of Vietnam!
The built a Wall of Commemoration to those who died in Vietnam!

55,000,000 Americans died in the "pussyholes" of America!
The built no Wall of Commemoration to those who died in America!

All of them thought they would "get out" alive!
One would have thought that the Americans in the "pussyholes" stood a better chance of "getting out alive"; but they didn't realize the mindset of the "enemy"!

WHAT IS A D&C ABORTION?

The D&E method, used on unborn children 14 weeks or older,
involves using a long steel tool to grasp and tear off, by brute force, the arms and legs of the developing humanafter which the skull is crushed.
Dr. Anthony Levatino, an obstetrician-gynecologist who has performed many D&E abortions, describes the procedure: Picture yourself reaching in with the Sopher clamp and grasping anything you canOnce you have grasped something inside, squeeze on the clamp to set the jaws and pull hard really hard. You feel something let go and out pops a fully formed leg about six inches long. Reach in again and grasp whatever you can. Set the jaw and pull really hard once again and out pops an arm about the same length. Reach in again and again with that clamp and tear out the spine, intestines, heart and lungs.

You agnostics get it, so are you too lazy to believe? | Reviewer: Matt Dunivan
    ------ About the song The Man Comes Around performed by Johnny Cash

Great song. Coming from a man who beat his own army of demons to spread the Word of God. Shelbi, you pretty annoying yourself but I know you can't help it. Without God's love and His Son's gift of salvation I couldn't help being a moron either

My Grandfather's Clock Echoes | Reviewer: Salihu Ahmad Yusuf,
    ------ About the song My Grandfather's Clock performed by Johnny Cash

Made me to like English both as a language and a persona-social phenomena. I was taught the song in my early school days in the 1950's, but it still seems new as it frequently occurs to my mind's pleasures. Until now that the internet has brought its words clearer to me, l had always mummered or hummed its words and rhythms. More so, it keeps abreast with the dialectics of life.

Andrew is SO Right... | Reviewer: Charles
    ------ About the song I Was There When It Happened performed by Johnny Cash

I became infatuated with this wonderful song after a laying of hands on me while in a hospital ICU station brought me from death to life. I have thought numerous times as Andrew wrote, above, someone, somewhere surely took the "hell" out of this song.

Mr. Cash was quite a rounder and surely knew some pretty vile sins during his drinking days.

I was there when it happened, too.
Yes,I know when Jesus saved my soul,
The very moment He forgave me and made me whole;
He took away my heavy burdens,
The Lord, He gave me peace within;
Satan can't make me doubt it;
It's real and I'm gonna shout it;
I was there when it happened and I guess I ought to know!
Amen

The White Buffalo version | Reviewer: Double G
    ------ About the song Highwayman performed by Johnny Cash

I have listened to The White Buffalo version and much prefer it to any other apart from the great man in black himself...JC. It has an honesty that compliments the lyrics and the chords.

Truly beautiful song that I am considering for my own funeral. Kind of describes how I see the great cycle of life and death.
