Johnny Cash sings Run On

Tue Jul 04, 2006 12:01 am

On the new American V album he sings "Run On" but with the
title "Gods Gonna Cut You Down"Wonder whats right?
He also does another song Elvis covered,Larry Gatlins "Help Me"
Its a great album overall,even though his voice is weak in places
it adds something to the songs.You are sadly missed Johnny but
this is a fitting end

I read about him covering "Larry Gatlin's" "Help Me," but couldn't help thinking, 'does this reviewer have any clue how much Elvis Presley embraced this song as his own?" It should be mentioned!

I love Johnny Cash and applaud the attention, but sometimes I really wonder why it is that this attention came so late...and absent the disdain that Elvis (all purpose target of American greatness and "excess") always got until maybe recently...j

Very true,while im no big johnny cash fan myself,i do however enjoy some of his music and found him to be also a humble man,but the attention and more import the respect he gets seems to allude elvis,although elvis is getting better respect these days,but it still could be better!
