Review about Johnny Cash songs
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.

this is a good history song | Reviewer: Bryan shaffer

Context | Reviewer: PJL500
    ------ About the song Remember The Alamo performed by Johnny Cash

After Mexico gained it's independence from Spain at the end of the Mexican war for Independence in 1821, Texas was a part of Mexico & a lot of Anglo-Americans lived in Texas, many owned slaves. The new Constitution of Mexico outlawed slavery so the Texans wanted independence. Mexico did not want Texas to revolt or secede, and they ordered to Texans to honor Mexican law against slavery. as well as demanding they begin complying with other Mexican law which they were not. It had no effect, Texans simply ignored the laws they didn't like (the big problem was the slavery issue). Although a majority of Texans wanted peace despite disagreeing with many of the laws of Mexico, so they declared their loyalty of Mexico to General Cos, who refused to accept it, believing that the only way to bring Texas under control was through military intervention (typical mentality for a career military man, no training is diplomacy). After a couple of arrests, and the election of a "centrist," which I take to mean open to enforcing the end of slavery in Mexico. So eventually the Army of Texas revolted so the Texans started the war, and won their independence. But they didn't keep it, obviously, they joined the US as a state in the end. Normally, I'd be all for a war to fight for the independence of you nation, just as we did. But not so you can keep slaves. So the war was ultimately started by Texas, but that Mexican general was a fool also. He could have accepted the offer, see if Texas complied, then if not, military action may be in order. So not the most honorable start of a new US state, but it is what it is, Texas will not be given independence, although many want it. It much like what Lincoln did (despite my criticism of General Gos), fight to keep his country together. The best we can do now is to properly treat the non-white residents of Texas because the state is here to stay.

    ------ About the song The Man Comes Around performed by Johnny Cash

Well put Richard. Johnny Cash has an awesome voice. The song expresses an interesting theological view, or at least a good apocalypse story. You people and your religious are seriously annoying. If there is a god, and he/she is Christian, your own holy book states that HE DOES NOT LIKE US!!!

Missing the Point | Reviewer: Thomas
    ------ About the song San Quentin performed by Johnny Cash

A few persons may be serving a sentence for a crime they did not commit. However, if Cash was speaking on behalf of the majority in San Quentin, it's obvious that they did not repent of their error, consequently blaming the prison system for their plight. This fact also shows up in that a very large proportion of them will come out & repeat their crime. (Some have served several sentences for rape, murder etc) Perhaps the prisons should do more to help these people to understand the gravity of what they did. Examples of others leading a happy life without being a criminal are not impossible to find.

Memories | Reviewer: Bonita
    ------ About the song My Grandfathers Clock performed by Johnny Cash

In 1950 when I was in high school chorus we sang this song at a recital. I have thought of it off and on over the years, but it has been running through my head constantly over the past few days. I'm so happy to find the lyrics again as I had fogotten some of them.
