Pretty much kicked ass
i got chills and i don't even know his music that well
great! thinking about seeing it this weekend.
good to hear... ill be seeing it soon..
I really want to see it too, JC is a badass
Got a babysitter Tues., gonna take the wife to see it. She hated Cash ten years ago, but I guess the music grew on her just like I did.
All the reviews have been great, I can't wait to see it.
ya i liked it allot, there were allot of details left out but other than that i enjoyed it much!!
Glad to hear all the positive reviews so far.
Well, you wonder why I always dress in black,
Why you never see bright colors on my back,
And why does my appearance seem to have a somber tone.
Well, there's a reason for the things that I have on.
I wear the black for the poor and the beaten down,
Livin' in the hopeless, hungry side of town,
I wear it for the prisoner who has long paid for his crime,
But is there because he's a victim of the times.
I wear the black for those who never read,
Or listened to the words that Jesus said,
About the road to happiness through love and charity,
Why, you'd think He's talking straight to you and me.
Well, we're doin' mighty fine, I do suppose,
In our streak of lightnin' cars and fancy clothes,
But just so we're reminded of the ones who are held back,
Up front there ought 'a be a Man In Black.
I wear it for the sick and lonely old,
For the reckless ones whose bad trip left them cold,
I wear the black in mournin' for the lives that could have been,
Each week we lose a hundred fine young men.
And, I wear it for the thousands who have died,
Believen' that the Lord was on their side,
I wear it for another hundred thousand who have died,
Believen' that we all were on their side.
Well, there's things that never will be right I know,
And things need changin' everywhere you go,
But 'til we start to make a move to make a few things right,
You'll never see me wear a suit of white.
Ah, I'd love to wear a rainbow every day,
And tell the world that everything's OK,
But I'll try to carry off a little darkness on my back,
'Till things are brighter, I'm the Man In Black.
my old man was a truck driver, owner/operator all his life. when i grew up my dad listened to Jonny Cash which as a kid i remember enjoying his music. he had 8 track tape players in his rigs then. he would put in a 8 track in when we would be delivering a big CAT D8 dozer or big scraper or whatever other big piece of heavy equipment he would haul back then to a construction site, i used to ride with him as a kid, man did i love that. this is in the early 70's. im not a country fan but i did like listening to my dads favorite country singers. it brings back good old day memories that i remember in the early 70's. thats pretty cool. i will be seeing this movie, might even try and take my pop before he gone, he's 80 now. he drove rigs till he was 72 then retired, too old to handle the rig and work that goes along with it. Jonny Cash is good old truckers music to me. damn im gettin all sensitive and teary eyed posting this, what the hells wrong with me.
I plan on taking the wife to see it as well.
