Written and Recorded by Johnny Cash
[G]I know that hearts were loving
Long [D7]before I was here
And I’m not the first to ever cry
In my [G]bed or in my beer
There were [C]songs before there was radio
Of [G]love that stays and [Em]love that goes
They were [C]writing melancholy tunes
And tearful words that [D7]rhyme
Before my [G]time [D7]before my [G]time
There were songs in old dusty books
Of [D7]love that’s always been

Sweet lovers in their glory
Who are [G]now gone with the wind
Old [C]fashion love words spoken then
Keep [G]coming back [Em]around again
[C]Nothings changed except the names
Their love burns just like [D7]mine
Before my [G]time [D7]before my [G]time
And [C]in the dim of yesterday
[G]I can clearly see
That [C]flesh and blood cried out to someone
[G]As it does in [D7]me
And there was [G]some old song that said
I [C]love you till I die
Before my [G]time [D7]before my [G]time

But what the old time masters had
Is [D7]what I feel for you

Love is love and doesn’t change
In a [G]century or two
If [C]someway they had seen and knew
[G]How it would be for [Em]me and you
They’d [C]wish for love like yours
And they would wish for love like [D7]mine
Before my [G]time [D7]before my [G]time[/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.
