Johnny Cash: The Man In Black



Well, you wonder why I always dress in black,
Why you never see bright colors on my back,
And why does my appearance seem to have a somber tone.
Well, there's a reason for the things that I have on.

I wear the black for the poor and the beaten down,
Livin' in the hopeless, hungry side of town,
I wear it for the prisoner who has long paid for his crime,
But is there because he's a victim of the times.

I wear the black for those who never read,
Or listened to the words that Jesus said,
About the road to happiness through love and charity,
Why, you'd think He's talking straight to you and me.

Well, we're doin' mighty fine, I do suppose,
In our streak of lightnin' cars and fancy clothes,
But just so we're reminded of the ones who are held back,
Up front there ought 'a be a Man In Black.

I wear it for the sick and lonely old,
For the reckless ones whose bad trip left them cold,
I wear the black in mournin' for the lives that could have been,
Each week we lose a hundred fine young men.

And, I wear it for the thousands who have died,
Believen' that the Lord was on their side,
I wear it for another hundred thousand who have died,
Believen' that we all were on their side.

Well, there's things that never will be right I know,
And things need changin' everywhere you go,
But 'til we start to make a move to make a few things right,
You'll never see me wear a suit of white.

Ah, I'd love to wear a rainbow every day,
And tell the world that everything's OK,
But I'll try to carry off a little darkness on my back,
'Till things are brighter, I'm the Man In Black.

Viche "Walk the line"?
Gostei especialmente de Reese Witherspoon no papel de June.

Non me gustou demasiado. Unha mágoa, porque os 2 protagonistas están magníficos, incluso cantando. Coma introdución a Johnny Cash pode valer, mais pareceume algo edulcorado de máis. Se cadra centrándose na relación con June conseguen un produto máis dixerible, pero a súa loita persoal entre cristián e "licencioso" era moi forte.

Hola Pepe. Te han quitado el vídeo de youtube.
Por si acaso no lo sabes hay una opción para meter código al escribir comentarios y así evitar ataques de span como el mensaje anterior.
