Better known as the 'Man in Black', Johnny Cash is a music legend who broke barriers between country, blues, rock, and gospel music to create a sound that had yet to surface in the early 1950's. Cash pioneered his way through the music scene to eventually become one of the most influential musicians in music history. Even today, Cash's memory and music lives on through artist covers and video footage. 

Born on February 26, 1932 in Arkansas, Cash become interested in music at the age of twelve when he picked up his first guitar. His mother knew that her Johnny had a gift for singing music, and was able to pay for singing lessons with the little money that they had. After graduating high school, Cash joined the U.S. Airforce where he began to focus in on his music. Later, he formed his band with two mechanics, Marshall Grant and Luther Perkins to form Johnny Cash and the Tennessee Two

The song "I Walk The Line" was written and recorded by Cash in 1956 and became his first number one hit on Billboard. The single remained at the top of the charts for several weeks, and recorded again several times throughout the course of his career. The video below is a 1964 live recording of the song from San Quentin Prison and featured on the album At San Quentin

Enjoy this legendary live performance!

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

As sure as night is dark and day is light
I keep you on my mind both day and night
And happiness I've known proves that it's right
Because you're mine, I walk the line

You've got a way to keep me on your side
You give me cause for love that I can't hide
For you I know I'd even try to turn the tide
Because you're mine, I walk the line

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
