Tracklist

Ring Of Fire

length: 2:43
writer: Merle Kilgore, June Carter Cash

Bound by wild desire Lord I fell into a ring of fire
I fell into a burning ring of fire
I went down down down and the flames went higher
And it burns burns burns the ring of fire the ring of fire
[ steel ]
I fell into a burning ring of fire...

Now the taste of love is sweet when hearts like ours meet
I fell for you like a child oh but the fire went wild
I fell into a burning ring of fire...
[ guitar ]
I fell into a burning ring of fire...
And it burns burns burns the ring of fire the ring of fire

Big River

length: 2:02
composer: Johnny Cash
lyricist: Johnny Cash
Well I taught the weeping willow how to cry
And I showed the clouds how to cover up a clear blue sky
And the tears I cried for that woman are gonna flood you Big River
Then I'm gonna sit right here until I die
Oh I met her accidentaly in St Paul Minnesota
And it tore me up every time I heard her drawl southern drawl
Then I heard my dream was back downstream cavortin' in Davenport
And I followed you Big River when you called
Then you took me to St Louis later on down the river
A freighter said she's been here but she's gone boy she's gone
I found her trail in Memphis but she just walked up the block
She raised a few eyebrows and went on down alone
[ steel - guitar ]
Now won't you batter down by Boton Rouge River Queen roll it on
Take that woman on down to New Orleans New Orleans
Go on I've had enough dump my blues down in the gulf
Oh she loves you Big River more than me
Yeah I taught the weeping willow how to cry cry cry
And I showed the clouds how to cover up a clear blue sky
And the tears I cried for that woman are gonna flood you Big River
Then I'm gonna sit right here until I die

Understand Your Man

length: 2:05
Don't send your kinfolks to give me no talkin' I'll be long gone like I said
You say the same old things that you've been saying all along
Lay there in your bed and keep your mouth shot till I'm gone
And don't give me that old familiar cryin' cussin' moan
Understand your man understand your man
[ guitar - steel ]
You can give my other suits to the Salvation Army and everything else I leave behind
Cause I ain't takin' nothin' that'll slow down my traveling
While I'm untangling my mind
Oh I ain't gonna repeat what I've said anymore
While I'm breathin' this air that ain't been breathed before
I'll be as gone as a wild goose in winter you'll understand your man
Think about it honey understand your man hear me talkin' understand your man
Cause I'm leavin' understand your man don't be grievin' understand your man



I Walk The Line

length: 2:09
lyricist: Johnny Cash
composer: Johnny Cash
I keep the ends out for the tie that binds because you're mine I walk the line
I find it very very easy to be true I find myself alone when each day is through
Yes I'll admit that I'm a fool for you because you're mine I walk the line
[ guitar ]
As sure as night is dark and day is light I keep you on my mind both day and night
And happiness I've known proves that it's right because you're mine I walk the line
[ guitar ]
You've got a way to keep me on your side you give me cause for love that I can't hide
For you I know I'd even try to turn the tide because you're mine I walk the line
[ steel ]
I keep a close watch...
