“I wear the black for the poor and the beaten down, livin’ in the hopeless, hungry side of town,” Johnny Cash explained in an interview. “I wear it for the prisoner who has long paid for his crime, but is there because he’s a victim of the times.”

John Carter Cash Honors His Father

John Carter Cash is now honoring his father. Much like his father, the words of John Carter are sharp and clear, getting to the heart of the matter without any fuss.

“Dad, although you are very much alive in many ways, I feel I get closest to you through your words,” Johnny Cash’s son wrote. “I am still reading, still listening and still learning. And in doing so, I appreciate you more every day.”

“You lived several lives in your 71 years, but they can all be distilled down to two: first, John R, Cash, the dedicated father, husband and mentor to family; and second, Johnny Cash,” John Carter Cash went on to write. “I love and have always loved them both…but how do I stay in touch with you, Dad — with who you really were? I have done this by studying your lyrics, poetry and other writings.”
