here’s some videos that we love (pt. 2, the Johnny Cash edition)

When Hiram was a little kid, his Grandma  Lucke had a patch of records next to the stereo.  The one that was out front was this one.  Later Hiram dated a girl whose grandmother babysat Mr. Cash as a kid back in Arkansas.  It’s a little early, but H’s grandma died right before Mr. Cash did and he’s been thinking of her tonight (along with anyone who has had to work very hard for a living and all those people Johnny had to dress in black for) so here’s some videos of Johnny for Edna Lucke and anyone else who loves a good country song ( I’ve never seen the movie and I don’t plan to–Johnny Cash does not exist to me as a movie star):

Hurt (don’t watch this if you can’t handle death… or crying)
Big River
Delia’s Gone
Sunday Morning Coming Down
Ring of Fire
Ballad of Ir a Hayes
God’s Gonna Cut You Down
Elvis who?
Walk the Line

One thought on “here’s some videos that we love (pt. 2, the Johnny Cash edition)

  1. I’ve just made the mistake of watching Hurt again, even knowing that every single time I’ve ever seen it I cry like a baby…

    It’s a thing of incredibly sad, heart-wrenching beauty.
