Rodney Crowell;
I'm back on board that '49 Ford in 1956
Long before the sun came up way out in the sticks
The headlight showed a two rut roadway
Back up in the pines
First time I heard Johnny Cash
Sing I Walk The Line

I got my thrill behind the wheel upon my daddys lap
Grandpa rode co-pilot with a flashlight and a map
Cane pole out the window it was in the summertime
First time I heard Johnny Cash
Sing I Walk The Line

Johnny Cash;
I keep a close watch on this heart of mine
I keep my eyes wide open all the time
I keep the ends out for the tie that binds
Because you're mine, I Walk The Line

I never will forget that day,I know the time and place,
Sounded like the whole thing came right down from outer space,
I still can see those headlights and that dashboard in my mind,
The first time I heard Johnny Cash sing I walk the line.

I find it very very easy to be true,
I find myself alone when each day's through,
Yes I'll admit that I'm a fool for you,
Because you're mine, I walk the line

Rodney Crowell;
All these long years later it's still music to my ears
I swear it sounds as good right now as anything I hear
I've seen the Mona Lisa
I've heard Shakespear read real fine
Just like hearing Johnny Cash
Sing I Walk The Line

Johnny Cash;
As sure as night is dark and day is light
I keep you on my mind both day and night
And happiness I've know proves that it's right
Because you're mine, I Walk The Line

Because you're mine, I Walk The Line
