The Lyrics

they were wed...in a fever, they explained
and they howled...with her ma on the opry stage

but they're both dead, now
how sad that they passed
they were alright
john and june cash...were a gas gas gas

they were raised...to salute both god and flag
they were schooled...with guitars strapped on their backs

but they're both dead, now
how sad that they passed
they were alright
john and june cash...were a gas gas gas

how i frowned...i was choked up because they're dead
so reknowned...how complete was the life they led
the sound...of their songs made them lots of bread
yeah yeah yeah
they were crowned...to the hall of fame they'll head
off, they'll head

but they're both dead, now
how sad that they passed
they were alright
john and june cash...were a gas gas gas

john and june cash...what a gas
john and june cash...what a gas
john and june cash...what a gas
john and june cash...what a gas

I believe it was June in fact who wrote "Ring Of Fire" because it was she who turned down the advertising offers from the haemorrhoid people - RIP to the two of them - 555

Good one, Alvin. I have a guitarist friend who used to play in a back-up band with both Johnny and his brother Tommy Cash. 555

Just the thought of Mick Jagger singing a tribute to the Cashes gets a good laugh.

A great tribute, Al, but...I know it's wrong...but...the lines "but they're both dead, now/ how sad that they passed" had me chucklin'...just the juxtaposition of the OS with the theme....sorry.....555
