Johnny Cash

Johnny Cash's, "Ring Of Fire"
Better Lyrics:
I was sent to a burnin' lake of fire.
I thought I was righteous,but I was found to be a liar.
And it burns,burns,burns.......The Lake of Fire..........The Lake of Fire.
Original Lyrics:
I fell into a burnin' ring of fire.
I went down,down,down.....and the flames were growin' higher.
And it burns,burns,burns.....the Ring of Fire....The Ring of Fire.

Johnny Cash's, "Walk the Line"
Better Lyrics:
I keep my pants up with a length of cord.

I keep the zipper down case I get bored

I keep the knot loose on that length of cord.

Honey, if You're bored

Just pull the cord
Original Lyrics:
I keep a close watch on this heart of mine
I keep my eyes wide open all the time
I keep the ends out for the tie that binds
Because you're mine, I walk the line

Johnny Cash's Walk The Line, first verse
