The highway she's a hotter than nine times the hell
A D
The rides are as scarce as the rain
G
When your down to your last shuck with nothing to sell
A D
And too far away from the train


Verse 2:
D G
Been a good month of Sunday's and a guitar ago
A D
Had a tall drink of yesterday's wine
G
Left a long string of friends,some sheets in the wind
A D
And some satisfied woman behind


Chorus:
D G
Hey ride me down easy Lord,ride me on down
A D
Leave word in the dust where i lay
G
Say i'm easy come,easy go
A D
Easy to love when i stay


Verse 3:
D G
I've put snow on the mountain,raised hell on the hill
A D
I locked horns with the devil himself
G
Been a rodeo fool,a son of a gun
A D
And a hobo with stars in his crown


Chorus.

D G
Ride me down easy Lord,ride me on down

Highwayman

I was a highwayman. Along the coach roads I did ride
With sword and pistol by my side
Many a young maid lost her baubles to my trade
Many a soldier shed his lifeblood on my blade
The bastards hung me in the spring of twenty-five
But I am still alive.

I was a sailor. I was born upon the tide
And with the sea I did abide.
I sailed a schooner round the Horn to Mexico
I went aloft and furled the mainsail in a blow
And when the yards broke off they said that I got killed
But I am living still.

I was a dam builder across the river deep and wide
Where steel and water did collide
A place called Boulder on the wild Colorado
I slipped and fell into the wet concrete below
They buried me in that great tomb that knows no sound
But I am still around..I'll always be around..and around and around and
around and around

I fly a starship across the Universe divide
And when I reach the other side
I'll find a place to rest my spirit if I can
Perhaps I may become a highwayman again
Or I may simply be a single drop of rain
But I will remain
And I'll be back again, and again and again and again and again..

Those four words resonated throughout the world much as "In God We Trust" and other familiar phrases which have stood the test of time.
Yet the introduction was never any more necessary than telling someone the name of the Mona Lisa when viewing the painting. Johnny Cash has been a household name for more than most people can remember, and his career spanned nearly five decades.
Few artists in history ever enjoyed the successful career Cash did. Many people describe him as a mythical, larger than life figure. Others describe him as one of the greatest recording artists of all time.
Yet there is no one description which adequately fits The Man In Black. He was a complex, unpredictable, ball of talent and energy that no one has ever been able to pigeonhole or categorize. Johnny Cash's legacy will live on forever. His music, integrity and deeds will survive time itself. His contributions to mankind are immeasurable. A man loved by millions the world over; he will be deeply missed by all.

When [g] you are sad and lonely and have no place to go
Call me up, sweet baby, and bring along some dough
And we’ll go honky tonkin’, honky tonkin’
Honky tonkin’, honey baby
We’ll go honky tonkin’ [d7] ’round this [g] town.

When you and your baby have a fallin’ out
Just call me up sweet mama and we’ll go steppin’ out
And we’ll go honky tonkin’, honky tonkin’
Honky tonkin’, honey baby
We’ll go honky tonkin’ ’round this town.

We’re goin’ to the city - to the city fair
If you go to the city then you will find me there
And we’ll go honky tonkin’, honky tonkin’
Honky tonkin’, honey baby
We’ll go honky tonkin’ ’round this town.
