Johnny & June were the ultimate duo. 

In 1968, Johnny Cash proposed to the beautiful June Carter during a live performance at the London Ice House in Canada. The two married soon after, and for the next 35 the Johnny and June shared a beautiful bond, and their love radiated through their music.

The couple stayed together until June's passing in 2003. A heartbroken Johnny died just four months after his wife

Throughout their marriage, Johnny and June gave many outstanding performances together, with so much obvious chemistry. 

But sadly, in 2002, the couple gave their final performance as a duo, with their family by their sides.

Prior to the performance, Johnny shared a sweet story about the song they were going to sing, "Temptation". 

Johnny told the crowd that when he was a young man he would sing "Temptation" while working in the cotton fields, and at that very same time June would sing the song on the radio, and Johnny would listen to her at night. 

Johnny told the crowd, "After all these years, she and I come together on, 'Temptation'" and the duo began!

Although their final performance is heartbreaking to watch, it is amazing to see how much fun the two had together. This is what true love is all about! 

We miss Johnny & June, but they will never be forgotten! 

Watch the sweet performance below.  

LYRICS BELOW 

Oh, tell me will you, darling
Why you look so bad tonight
You got bags around your eyeballs
That are red instead of white

Well, let me put it this way, you came, I was alone
Shucks, I should a knowed that you was temptation
You smiled a leering me on, my heart is plumb gone
Cause you was temptation

It’ll be thrilling if you’re willing
But if it never can be then a pity for me
For you was too bored to be kissed
I couldn’t resist cause you was temptation and I was yours

As the apple tempted Adam
As the serpent tempted Eve
As the willow tree tempts the caterpillar, baby

That’s how you tempted me

As the corn liquor tempts the drunkard
As sorghum tempts the bee
As the mud hole tempts the mosquito, baby

That’s how you tempted me
For you came and I was alone
Shucks, I should a knowed that you was temptation
(A ring-a-ding-ding-ding)
You smiled a leering me on my heart is plumb gone
For you was temptation

It’ll be thrilling if you’re willing
But if it never can be then a pity for me
For you was too bored to be kissed
I couldn’t resist cause you was temptation and I was yours

Here is my heart
Take it away, oh take it away
Say that we will never, never, never part

I’m just a slave, just a dadburn slave
I’m a going to wed you
For you’re temptation and I’m a red hot flame
Hot splinter
For you
