JOHNNY CASH ! His Last Ever Song…

Johnny Cash‘s final recordings ‘American V: A Hundred Highways’ were released in 2006 – it was the fifth album in the American series, all produced by Rick Rubin, and it reached the top of the US albums chart on July 22, 9 years ago today, – the most memorable fact is that the record contains the last song that The Man In Black ever wrote: a train story titled ‘Like The 309’ with opening line “It should be awhile / before I see Doctor Death / so it would sure be nice / if I could get my breath…” yes indeed, that beautifully dark and immensely characterful voice sounded very tired on this touching, last song – rest in peace, unforgettable legend…
