My God, how more intense can this guy have gotten? Found an album of Indian Ballads by Cash that are simply on another dimension...I understand he was part Cherokee, but what a limb he stood on to release these hard-core Indian Rights songs in 1964, many about the US breaking treaties, the trail of tears, and all the typical stuff...Cash really has to be considered the musical equiv of a Mark Twain or Carl Sandburg....The man seemed to be born to musically chronicle the "people"...the 99% of people we never heard about who made this country..all the working men and women, drifters, wanderers, pioneers, and, yes, more than a few Indians as well..

The older I get, the more i think JC might be some minor religious figure, like the prophets of the old testament....because I think life hasn't stopped minting them..
