In the late 1960's, Glen Campbell touched the hearts of millions of Americans with his hit 4-season show Glen Campbell Goodtime Hour, which debuted on CBS in 1968.

The variety show highlighted Glen's naturally good-hearted personality, and also helped a wide variety of other artist's gain new fans across the country.

Although the world suffered a loss when Glen retired, in 2011, after a diagnosis of Alzheimer's Disease, his legacy, and the legacy of Goodtime Hour, lives on.

Glen was always a malleable session player-- everyone from Waylon Jennings to classical Italian guitarists to Roger Miller, appeared and swapped lines with Glen on his show.

Johnny Cash was another iconic musician who made an appearance on the show. In fact, one of the most infamous performances on the show was the stirring duet of Johnny's 'Folsom Prison Blues'.

Watch the memorable performance below!

And since we love the Merle Haggard version at the Ryman so much, we decided to share that video as well!

LYRICS BELOW


I hear the train a comin'
It's rolling round the bend
And I ain't seen the sunshine since I don't know when,
I'm stuck in Folsom prison, and time keeps draggin' on
But that train keeps a rollin' on down to San Antone..
When I was just a baby my mama told me. Son,
Always be a good boy, don't ever play with guns.
But I shot a man in Reno just to watch him die
When I hear that whistle blowing, I hang my head and cry..

I bet there's rich folks eating in a fancy dining car
They're probably drinkin' coffee and smoking big cigars.
Well I know I had it coming, I know I can't be free
But those people keep a movin'
And that's what tortures me...

Well if they freed me from this prison,
If that railroad train was mine
I bet I'd move it on a little farther down the line
Far from Folsom prison, that's where I want to stay
And I'd let that lonesome whistle blow my blues away
