Oh there's something 'bout a man in black,
Makes me want to buy a cadillac,
Throw the top back,
And roll down to Jackson town,
I wanna be there on the stage with you,
You and I could be the next page two,
Hear the crowd roar,
Make 'em want more,
Kick the footlights out,

I wanna love like Johnny and June,
Rings of fire burnin' with you,
I wanna walk the line,
Walk the line,
'Till the end of time,
I wanna love,
Love ya that much,
Cash it all in,
Give it all up,
When you're gone,
I wanna go too,
Like Johnny and June,

I wanna hold you baby right or wrong,
Build a world around a country song,
Pray a sweet prayer,
Follow you there,
Down in history,

I wanna love like Johnny and June,
Rings of fire burnin' with you,
I wanna walk the line,
Walk the line,
'Till the end of time,
I wanna love,
Love ya that much,
Cash it all in,
Give it all up,
When you're gone,
I wanna go too,
Like Johnny and June,

Like Johnny and June,
More than life itself,
No-one else,
This endless promise,
They don't make love like that anymore,
Is that too much to be askin' for,

I wanna love like Johnny and June,
Rings of fire burnin' with you,
I wanna walk the line,
Walk the line,
'Till the end of time,
I wanna love,
Love ya that much,
Cash it all in,
Give it all up,
When you're gone,
I wanna go too,
Like Johnny and June,

Like Johnny and June,
And when we're gone,
There'll be no tears to cry,
Only memories of our lives,
They'll remember, remember,
A love like that.

    This some means so much to me! When there are days that i feel sad about me and my wonderful man I put my CD in and just let my feeling melt away. The first him I heard it was early one morning on CMT and I told myself "I was going to go out and buy CD when it comes out." And I kinda did that but I didnt go to the store i just got it off of itune. "The "BEST" CD of the year" and "BEST song ever"

    johhny cash defines rock and roll..he toured with elvis, jerry lee lewis, waylon jennings...the great american heros who laid the building blocks for acd, the stones, the beatles, the eagles, kiss, coldplay, greenday, stoned sour, nickle back and every other rock band out there to play..this song epitimizes the love affair between john and june..they were both married previously..johnny with three daughters and june with two...but their first marriages fell apart because of hte love affair between them...this song is about how she wants to love her man as much as june loved johhny..and she wants him to love her like johnny loved june...it was a forboding love..almost romeo and juliet-esqe with out the poision...she wants this new love to be as deep and as passionate as the cash's. dont we all want that though? someone to love until times eternal clock runs out? someone to walk through every burning ring of fire and to cross every line drawn? hand in hand...heart in heart...thats what "johnny and june" means.

    She wants what they had, the look they had when their eyes connected, how they always fought but could get over it, how she helped him through everything.

    Its a song about to people being madly in love. They never let go. This song reminds me of my grandma. I don't know why. She died in 2008 and i didn't get to say good bye :'(

    My meaning for this song is like she wants to have a good strong love, through thick and thin "cash it all in, give it all up" , and she just wants a love that lasts forever.
