The Letter J with Johnny Cash

Character J on the cube: Dice with letter J

The Letter J

Almost half over, right?  Today is the letter J, and oh, what I could have written:
jittery, jasper, jerky, jocky, juxtaposition....

But I have chosen:
Jackson
made famous by Johnny Cash and June Carter Cash.

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

Listen to the YouTube:




You gotta love Johnny and June!

  2. Love this song. I loved Walk the Line - one of my fave movies ever. It actually made me appreciate his music a lot more.

  3. I will just repeat what Julie said above. I started to write I love this song... then I saw what she wrote, so that's exactly how I feel.

  4. I loved Johnny's voice since I heard him sing the theme song for the cowboy series Johnny Yuma. Boy, that dates me.

  6. I love you graphics for the challenge. Jilda and I watched the Johnny Cash story recently. It's a great film. I had that vinyl record when it came out. I loved Johnny Cash.

  8. Your name is Sue. How do you do? I shall give that video a miss. Johnny Cash's voice hurts my ears.

    Have a lovely half a weekend, Susan.

  12. I loved those two; thanks for the reminder.

    I have reached J in my personal alphabet game but I can’t think of a single word that would give me something interesting to write about. This means that I’ve got stuck. Now, what were those words you mentioned . . . .

  13. My grandparents loved that song!

  14. The music he wrote toward the end of his life has a little more 'body' to it I think. They are about to publish an album he prepared before he died but never released.
