One of the things I love about Cash’s songs is the depth and bleakness of his tales. Think about it, this song has three chords (D, A & E) is about misogamy and cold blooded murder and thus is more akin to a punk song but Cash’s booming baritone carries the listener though. Not only that, it just scares the wifey… Ps. This isn’t the version on American Recordings Vol.1. I HIGHLY suggest listening to that version, it’s so much more vicious.
