Johnny Cash: I Walk the Line

20 Dec

I keep a close watch on this heart of mine

I keep my eyes wide open all the time

I keep the ends out for the tie that binds

Because you’re mine,

I walk the line

I find it very, very easy to be true

I find myself alone when each day is through

Yes, I’ll admit that I’m a fool for you

Because you’re mine,

I walk the line

As sure as night is dark and day is light

I keep you on my mind both day and night

And happiness I’ve known proves that it’s right

Because you’re mine,

I walk the line

You’ve got a way to keep me on your side

You give me cause for love that I can’t hide

For you I know I’d even try to turn the tide

Because you’re mine, I walk the line

I keep a close watch on this heart of mine

I keep my eyes wide open all the time

I keep the ends out for the tie that binds

Because you’re mine, I walk the line

    I really like Johnny Cash – a real working class songwriter.

      Yes, there were times when he was very popular. He died quite a few years ago soon after his wife died. He was only 71.

    Yes, a golden oldie, Gerard. This song, still very familiar to us! 🙂
