 While singing their hit song "Jackson", one of country music's most iconic couples shows a 1967 crowd a glimpse of what the future holds. The passionate relationship between Johnny Cash and June Carter was complicated, but certainly undeniable. 

"Jackson" was written in 1963, and recorded for country in 1967 by Johnny and June. The song was an instant hit, and it's lyrics resinated with fans. Possibly even with the couple singing it! Others have recorded the duet, but lets me honest... No one can sing it like Johnny and June.

During this 1967 performance, Johnny and June were not yet married. In fact, the two married just a year later on March 1, 1968. The chemistry between the two is electric, and it was only a matter of time before they spent the rest of their lives together. 

Either way, the love story of Johnny and June will forever remain a piece of country music history. Watch Johnny and June perform "Jackson" below!

LYRICS BELOW

We got married in a fever, hotter than a pepper sprout,
We've been talkin' 'bout Jackson, ever since the fire went out.
I'm goin' to Jackson, I'm gonna mess around,
Yeah, I'm goin' to Jackson,
Look out Jackson town.

Well, go on down to Jackson; go ahead and wreck your health.
Go play your hand you big-talkin' man, make a big fool of yourself,
You're goin' to Jackson; go comb your hair!
Honey, I'm gonna snowball Jackson.
See if I care.

When I breeze into that city, people gonna stoop and bow. (Hah!)
All them women gonna make me, teach 'em what they don't know how,
I'm goin' to Jackson, you turn-a loose-a my coat.
'Cos I'm goin' to Jackson.
"Goodbye," that's all she wrote.

But they'll laugh at you in Jackson, and I'll be dancin' on a Pony Keg.
They'll lead you 'round town like a scalded hound,
With your tail tucked between your legs,
You're goin' to Jackson, you big-talkin' man.
And I'll be waitin' in Jackson, behind my Jaypan Fan,

Well now, we got married in a fever, hotter than a pepper Sprout,
We've been talkin' 'bout Jackson, ever since the fire went out.
I'm goin' to Jackson, and that's a fact.
Yeah, we're goin' to Jackson, ain't never comin' back.

Well, we got married in a fever, hotter than a pepper sprout'
And we've been talkin' 'bout Jackson, ever since the fire went...
