Gone Man 

We were in New York City, Jack Clement, Jan Howard, June and I, and since we were going to the Lone Star Café, where we didn’t stay long, we took a cab, instead of a bus. Jack leaned over the cab driver and said, “The lord don’t know how long your hair is”. The Driver said What ?? !! Jack said, “He just knows many you got.” Then old jack started singing ”Gone Girl” to the cab driver, and we all joined in. We didn’t pay him when we got to the Lone Star, cause we knew we’d not stay long and we just him wait. We had a table somewhere in the back of the room where they sat us with another couple who had ordered fried potatoes, Jack had some fried potatoes and told the girl that she was making a mistake. Then we left. “You must believe in magic” said Jack to the cab driver. “I’ll never forget this night as long as I live,” said the cab driver. Now ole Jack sang “Gone Girl” out the window to his fellow Americans in New York City. Nobody applauded, but everyone was interested. Back in the room we sat up singing. Jack taught me “No Expectations” again and Jan sang along cause she had sung the song before. I sang “ It’ll Be Her” and Jack said You sing it good but you got a weird way of phrasing.

I sang “I Will Rock And Roll With You” and Jack said that’s a hit. Then Jack sang “A Bar With Nor Beer” that Benny Barnes used to sing. He sang it with a weird accent. June went to bed and went to sleep. Jack sang “When I Dream” then Jan sang “No expectations” again. Jan slipped out and went to her room. I said Will you play rhythm for me next week when I record all of these songs?” Sure Said Jack. I sang “It Comes And Goes” Jack played rhythm “That aint fast’ he said. Oh I said “I  thought you meant sing something quick.” “Naw he said I meant something” “ Don’t you like “It Come And Goes?” I Asked. Yeah but it ain’t fast. How did Mick Jagger and Keith Richards write a song like that? I asked. They watched the Carl Tipton Show. Asked Jack. They listen to the Grand Ole Opry said Jack. Naw they don’t I said. Where’s Jan? asked jack. She went to here room I said. How come? Asked jack. It’s two AM and she got sleepy. I said. I’m going to bed too said Jack. I’ll bring my old Gibson to the session next week when you record “Gone Girl” “And I Will Rock And Roll With You” I said. “And No Expectations” I said Jack. Is that the Gibson guitar you played on “Big River” in 1957 I asked. The same old one He said and he was gone. But he was at the session “next week” playing rhythm for me. And it felt good – cause we had rehearsed.

Hello John, This is Larry Butler. I have Joined Columbia Records as a staff producer and I Would Like See You. We met, we talked, we cut records that we’re still proud today. I Watched, as we traveled around the world, people everywhere smile and listen to a man who spoke and sang truth. Styles of records and songs have come and gone but through all the fades and gimmicks there has remained one consistent winner – Johnny Cash. Why? I believe it has been a lot to do with truth. His records are honest as he is. He will not cut a song because he believes it a hit. He cuts a song he believes it is a song

After several albums and a movie, I left to take a position to take a position with another record company summer 77 Hello John, this is Larry Butler and I Would Like To See You Again. Larry Butler

                                   Adventures Of Johnny Cash

I am a person that Johnny Cash listens to sometimes. That pleases me immensely Johnny Cash is a class listener. It’s fun to listened to by Johnny Cash. I truly believe that Johnny Cash can sing a thousand songs, which alone should unqualified him a good listener and go a long way towards calling him a singer. I’ve called him a singer even before that. They were right, too. The records are still around to prove it. It also proves that I was not always a good listener. But producers are supposed to make mistakes and I’ve always been a producer. Singers are the ones who are not supposed to make mistakes. And Johnny Cash has made at least a thousand mistakes. But I lied about Johnny Cash, the thousand songs. Johnny Cash can sing two thousand songs.  Jack Clement

  3. Love Me Like You Used To
  4. Casey's Last Ride
  5. Borderline

Every once in awhile a song comes along for me that gives me a boost. This has been the key to my continuing to enjoy performing after 30 years. And yes, I enjoy singing old songs as much as I ever did. Those songs are a part of me, There are times on stage that the song and I are one, and there is total projection of the song and to the audience. Know what I mean? But a new song that I love ….a really great song, gives me such a lift that I forgot the miles and the years and that song and I become one. Such a song is Kristofferson’s “Here Comes That Rainbow Again” The lyrics are so well, that sometimes the audience burst into applause when they hear the last line of the second verse. “Unwed Fathers” written by John Prine and Bobby Braddock, may be depressing to some of you, But it’s something that needs to be said for women, and, and I’m glad I can say it. “They’re All The Same” was written by Willie Nelson 20 years ago. I was living in California and I dreamed that that Willie wrote a song for me. I tracked him down in Nashville and told him about my dream. I did write a song for you. And sent it. For me, 1965 was a down year and it was one of the many things I lost. I only recently rediscovered it.

I wrote “I’m Leaving Now” in Australia on a bus between Sydney and Adelaide. And it’s about “the system” and the road. I wrote “You Beat All I Ever Saw” twenty years ago when Waylon and I were sharing an apartment in Madison Tennessee. I could only remember two verses of the original song, so I wrote the third verse at the studio. When I recorded this, my brother Waylon was hanging out with me most of the time and he was a great encouragement and inspiration to me. Jessi Colter: one of the world’s great women. “Casey’s Last Ride” is one of those songs Kristofferson gave me 15 years ago and I threw it in the lake. June and Anita kept telling me that I should record it, and finally I did, and they were right. I know Casey. “Borderline” “Love Me Like You Used To”  “Have You Ever Seen The Rain?” and “Easy Street” were contributed by Chips mom.. I love all four of them, especially “Easy Street”. You know I can relate to that song. Chips is a great producer alright. He’s also temperamental, hard working, ( there is no clock in his studio )  and totally unpredictable. And you can be sure he’s thinking a lot more than he’s saying. Picture this: We’ve just finished to take on one of the songs. It sounds good. Every one is excited, saying things like “That’s A Hit”, “That’s A Single”, “It’s A Monster”. I said “what do you think Chips?” A long pause, “It could sell hundreds” says Chips. So now when I’m out there, and if I am tired of any of the old song, I do one of these. Instantly, the years and miles roll away and again the song and I are one. The young mother in the audience gives me a knowing smile when I sing “Unwed Fathers”. A wrinkled, wizened old man taps his toe to “Borderline”. I even see a tear or two on “Rainbow”. I don’t think about sales and promotion when I record a song. I don’t record songs to do family or friends a favor. I don’t record a song because I publish. I record a song because I love it and it let it become part of me. And even a blind pig gets a grain of corn once in awhile. So who knows, maybe I’ll sell hundreds. Johnny Cash
