The Lyrics

I Woke Up One Morning Early At Dawn
When The Radio Said John Ritter Died
The Same Day Someone Else Died
Then Suddenly It Was Country's Best

His Name Was Cash
His Name Was Johnny Cash
Johnny Cash
He Was A Country Smash
His Name Was Cash
With A Cigar Ash
His Name Was Cash
His Name Was Johnny Cash

From My Radio To My TV Set
To The Song He Did Was The Boy Named Sue
The Girls All Came From Their High School Dance
To Shed A Tear For Deaths Of Two John's

His Name Was Cash
His Name Was Johnny Cash
Johnny Cash
He Was A Country Smash
His Name Was Cash
With A Cigar Ash
His Name Was Cash
His Name Was Johnny Cash

His First Record Company Was Sun
Elvis Was Also There
The Guest's Also Were Orbison
Great Balls Of Fire And More

His Last Song Was A Song Called Hurt
First Sung By The Nine Inch Nails
Trent Reznor Was The Guy Of That Song
And Said, Johnny Cash Is Singing Our Song

His Name Was Cash
His Name Was Johnny Cash
Johnny Cash
He Was A Country Smash
His Name Was Cash
With A Cigar Ash
His Name Was Cash
His Name Was Johnny Cash

Carl Perkins Talked About Him A Lot
They Wrote A Song About Elvis Presley
On September 2003
He Said, I Have To Die With Jack Tripper

His Name Was Cash
His Name Was Johnny Cash
Johnny Cash
He Was A Country Smash
His Name Was Cash
With A Cigar Ash
His Name Was Cash
His Name Was Johnny Cash

Now Everything's Sad, He's Not In Pain Anymore
And Johnny Cash Is The Singer Of The Land
For Him, The Livin', June Cash Had Died Too
When He Died, John Ritter Did Too

His Name Was Cash
His Name Was Johnny Cash
Johnny Cash
He Was A Country Smash
His Name Was Cash
With A Cigar Ash
His Name Was Cash
His Name Was Johnny Cash

I remember seeing Johnny Cash in concert in Helsinki when I was a child. He began with the familiar "Hello0, I'm Johnny Cash" salute, and began playing "Get the Rhythm". At that moment I knew what is making music with heart and soul.

"Well, I knew that snake wrote 'em really bad, from a worn-out feeling that I've always had. And I knew his rhyming really was so dumb. He was small and bent, and pale and cold. I took one look at this, and felt like mold, and I said, 'My name is Sue! How do you do? Now you're gettin' a one!' Yeah, that's what I told him!" Learn how to rhyme, will ya? If you learned nothing else from Johnny Cash, you should've at least learned that! Face it, when it comes to writing parodies, I'm breezin' down I-78, and you're overheating in the shoulder on Route 22!
