Today we have two endearing pieces from the hand of Johnny Cash, a musical legend who needs no introduction. The first is a poetic, undated love note to his wife, June; the second, an utterly charming to-do list.
Transcripts follow. First image taken from the forthcoming book, “House of Cash“; second image courtesy of Julien’s Auctions. Many thanks to the lovely India Knight for bringing the former to my attention.
That’s really nice June. You’ve got a way with words and a way with me as well.
The fire and excitement may be gone now that we don’t go out there and sing them anymore, but the ring of fire still burns around you and I, keeping our love hotter than a pepper sprout.
