I Corinthians, 15:55

Album: American VI: Ain't No Grave (2010)
  • This waltz-time shuffle is the only Cash original on American VI: Ain't No Grave. The song's title is the scripture reference for the New Testament verse that reads: "Where, O Death, is your victory? Where, O Death, is your sting?" The passage is an explanation by St. Paul as to how death is not a source of fear or dread to the Christian thanks to Christ's sacrifice on the Cross.
  • Johnny Cash: "I wrote that song in Jamaica, It took me about a month to write. I mean, I just took my time. That's the way to make it, take your time. You don't do anything in a hurry. If you can do it tomorrow, you put it off 'til tomorrow." (Source Mojo magazine October 2013)
