No one can replace The Man in Black. He is a legend in country music as a singer and a songwriter. At the CMT Memorial Tribute to Johnny Cash, Kid Rock and Hank Williams Jr. did their best to honor him. 

While introducing their song dedicated to Mr. Cash, Kid Rock wanted to be clear that he did not know Johnny as well as many people in the audience did, but he did want to comment on the strength Johnny's children have for dealing with his passing. He said that from their strength, he can tell what type of man Johnny Cash was. At this point, you can see Roseanne Cash and her younger brother John Carter Cash embrace each other. 

After a round of applause for Johnny's children, the duo starts playing Johnny Cash's hit song "There Ain't No Good Chain Gang.

This song was recorded by Johnny Cash as a duet with fellow legendary outlaw country singer, Waylon Jennings, in 1978. It was written and sung from the perspective of a prison inmate who is writing to his family.  The duet reached #2 on the Billboard charts.

Hank Williams Jr. and Kid Rock are no Johnny Cash and Waylon Jennings, but they definitely made the two deceased singers proud

Watch for yourself below! You'll be glad you did!

Lyrics

Bet it ain't raining back home
Bet your sister's still on the phone
Bet Momma's in the kitchen, cooking fried chicken
Wishing that I hadn't done wrong

Yeah, Momma, don't you worry about it none though
Everything's gonna be all right, Momma
They're teaching us a lot of new things in here Momma
Things like

There ain't no good in an evil-hearted woman
And I ain't cut out to be no Jesse James
And you don't go writing hot cheques down in Mississippi
And there ain't no good chain gang

Papa's reading yesterday's mail
Wishing that the hay was all baled
I bet he's a-wishing we could go fishing
And here I am a-laying in jail

Well, Papa, don't you worry about it none now
Everything's gonna be all right, Papa
They're teaching us a lesson a day we're learning pretty well too
We've already learned a whole lot of stuff already
Things like

There ain't no good in an evil-hearted woman
And I ain't cut out to be no Jesse James
And you don't go writing hot cheques down in Mississippi
And there ain't no good chain gang

There ain't no good in an evil-hearted woman
And I ain't cut out to be no Jesse James
And you don't go writing hot cheques down in Mississippi
And there ain't no good chain gang

There ain't no good in an evil-hearted woman
And I ain't cut out to be no Jesse James
And you don't go writing hot cheques down in Mississippi
And there ain't no good chain gang
