My favourite Johnny Cash song. Much better than the Nine Inch Nails original IMO.

I fully agree - the guy was really great - right up to the end - had his records from the earliest in the 1950's - he saw me through some bad times in my adolescence - music can do that.

Hi Don - I am amazed you found The Talking Leaves - the LP was not popular in the States at the time it was released because of its content - just like the Johnny Horton Battle of New Orleans was not popular here - they even changed 'the British' to 'the Rebels' for the version here - crazy days.

Youtube is becoming more and more of a universal jukebox. On terms highly unfavourable to the musicians.

Not exactly obscure, but a great little ditty.

That one was around 50% of all the tunes played in the jukeboxes in student bars in Edinburgh in 1978. The other 50% was this one.

Till around 1981 when this one was every (multiple expletives deleted) where.

It took me around 20 years to actually like this one. got banned from a bar in Soho for putting a fiver's worth of coins in the jukebox to play this one for around three hours straight.
