[edit]
There once was a musical troupe,
A pickin', singin', folk group.
They sang the mountain ballads,
And the folk songs of our land.
They were long on musical ability,
Folks thought they would go far
But political incompatibility,
Led to their downfall.

Well, the one on the right was on the left.
And the one in the middle was on the right.
And the one on the left was in the middle.
And the guy in the rear was a Methodist.

This musical aggregation,
Toured the entire nation.
Singing traditional ballads,
And the folk songs of our land (land).
They performed with great virtuosity,
And soon they were the rage.
But political animosity,
Prevailed upon the stage,

Well, the one on the right was on the left.
And the one in the middle was on the right.
And the one on the left was in the middle.
And the guy in the rear burned his driver's license.

Well, the curtain had ascended,
A hush fell on the crowd.
As thousands there were gathered,
To hear the folk songs of our land (land).
But they took their politics seriously,
And that night at the concert hall,
As the audience watched deliriously,
They had a free-for-all.

And the one in the middle was on the top.
And the one on the left got a broken arm.
And the guy on his rear said, "Oh, dear."

Now this should be a lesson,
If you plan to start a folk group.
Don't go mixin' politics,
With the folk songs of our land.
Just work on harmony and diction,
Play your banjo well.
And if you have political convictions,
Keep 'em to yourself.

Now, the one on the left works in a bank.
And the one in the middle drives a truck.
The one on the right's an all-night deejay.
And the guy in the rear got drafted.

Johnny Cash biography

Johnny Cash, born February 26, 1932, as J. R. Cash, in Kingsland, Arkansas, to Ray (1897-1985) and Carrie (née Rivers) Cash (1904-1991), and raised in Dyess, Arkansas, was an American singer, songwriter, actor, author, and Biblical scholar, who was one of the most influential musicians of the 20th century. Although he is primarily remembered as a country music artist, his songs and sound spanned many other genres including rockabilly and rock and roll, especially early in his career, as well as blues, folk, and gospel. Late in his career, Cash covered songs by several rock artists.

Cash was known for his deep, distinctive bass-baritone voice, for his demeanor and for his dark clothing, which earned him the nickname, "The Man in Black." He traditionally started his concerts by saying, "Hello, I'm Johnny Cash."

Much of Cash's music, especially that of his later career, echoed themes of sorrow, moral tribulation and redemption......MORE.....(full Johnny Cash biography)
