Jackson (2:44)

Cover of The Legend of Johnny Cash

From The Legend of Johnny Cash and 70 other releases

“Jackson” is a song, written in 1963 by Jerry Leiber and Billy Edd Wheeler, about a married couple who find (according to the lyrics) that the “fire” has gone out of their relationship. The song relates the desire of both partners to travel to a city named “Jackson” where they each expect to be welcomed as someone far better suited to the city’s lively night life than the other is. Although several towns named “Jackson” exist in the United States, the song is not about any specific one.

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