Written and Recorded by Johnny Cash
[G]There was a man whose deeds were dark as night
And quite by chance he rode into the [A7]light
A [C]man wild as the [G]dust devil with no [C]place to [G]run
[A7]Livin’ by his wits and by his [D7]gun
He [G]met a girl like none he had ever known
She cared not for the wild oats he had [A7]sown
And [C]so he laid his [G]gun down and [C]set his spirit [G]free
Began [A7]livin’ in respectabili[D7]ty
But [G]his ole ways of thinkin’ wouldn’t die
Could not forget the ole creed he lived [A7]by
And the [C]good and bad and [G]right and wrong
Kept [C]fightin’ for his [G]soul
Till his [A7]heart and mind [D7]both went out of [G]control
But now the ole saloon had lost its spell
What once was laughter now was livin’ [A7]hell
And the [C]hookers guns and [G]drinkin’
In his [C]life were out of [G]place
And [A7]in his mind he saw an angel’s [D7]face
So [G]he burned all his bridges in a day
And the devil deeds were done and laid [A7]away
And he [C]rode out a [G]better man than [C]when he first rode [G]in
And the [A7]angel got the [D7]badman in the [G]end[/chordpress]

Who is Johnny Cash?
– John R. Cash (born J. R. Cash February 26, 1932 – September 12, 2003) was an American singer, songwriter, musician, and actor. Much of Cash’s music contained themes of sorrow, moral tribulation, and redemption, especially in the later stages of his career. He was known for his deep, calm bass-baritone voice, the distinctive sound of his Tennessee Three backing band characterized by train-like chugging guitar rhythms, a rebelliousness coupled with an increasingly somber and humble demeanor, free prison concerts, and a trademark all-black stage wardrobe which earned him the nickname “The Man in Black”.Born to poor cotton farmers in Kingsland, Arkansas, Cash rose to fame in the burgeoning rockabilly scene in Memphis, Tennessee, after four years in the Air Force. He traditionally began his concerts by simply introducing himself, “Hello, I’m Johnny Cash”, followed by “Folsom Prison Blues”, one of his signature songs. Alongside “Folsom Prison Blues”, his other signature songs include “I Walk the Line”, “Ring of Fire”, “Get Rhythm”, and “Man in Black”. He also recorded humorous numbers like “One Piece at a Time” and “A Boy Named Sue”, a duet with his future wife June called “Jackson” (followed by many further duets after their wedding), and railroad songs such as “Hey, Porter”, “Orange Blossom Special”, and “Rock Island Line”. During the last stage of his career, he covered songs by contemporary rock artists of the time his most notable covers were “Hurt” by Nine Inch Nails, “Rusty Cage” by Soundgarden and, “Personal Jesus” by Depeche Mode.
Cash is one of the best-selling music artists of all time, having sold more than 90 million records worldwide. His genre-spanning music embraced country, rock and roll, rockabilly, blues, folk, and gospel sounds. This crossover appeal earned him the rare honor of being inducted into the Country Music, Rock and Roll, and Gospel Music Halls of Fame.
