    Wow! The ending tonite - weaving Pancho & Lefty from Emmylou Harris and Gram Parsons and Townes Van Zandt to Willie Nelson , Merle Haggard, and Bob Dylan, with Marty Stuart playing backup, and referencing his roots with Lester Flatt and Earl Scruggs. Just wow!

    this entire song just another example of amazing lyrics that came of out the 60's and 70's

    I've caught bits and pieces and of course I've learned a lot. One thing that caught my attention is pictures of Johnny Cash's first wife, who looked nothing like the the actress who played her in the movie. So I went to the google machine and found out that her physical appearance caused a lot of problems for them, which is not hard to imagine in the Jim Crow South. I didn't know about this part of Cash's life but I assume it's common knowledge among country music fans.

    Some of my favorite songwriters fit that description. Folks like Neil Young. But they have the ability to bring out every drop of pain in their songs when they sing them.
