Well the House of Cash just burned down All the way to the cold hard ground The doctors came from all over town To see the memories scattered all around
Then the stars came out by the light of day And they heard their old friend passed away That yard looked like a funeral hall Without the pies and casseroles
[Chorus:] Well, its goodbye Johnny goodbye June Goodbye fancy living room Well no one sleeps in Cash's bed Except the man in black and the woman he wed And the ring of fire comes full circle And the ring of fire comes all the way around
And if those ashes in the pool could talk To the anchor man out on the walk I'd bet they'd be happy to announce There'll be no yard sale now
And the ring of fire comes full circle And the ring of fire comes all the way around

"Sloop John B" is a traditional West Indian folk song, and it was a huge hit for The Beach Boys in 1966. They tweaked the lyric, "This is the worst trip since I've been born" to "...I've ever been on" as a wink to acid culture.
Angus Young created the distinctive opening guitar part for "Thuderstruck" by playing with all the strings taped up, except the B. He learned the studio trick from his older brother George Young, who was the rhythm guitarist for The Easybeats.
Robin Thicke and his mom, Gloria Loring are the first the first ever mother-and-son to have both tallied top 10 singles on the Hot 100 as solo artists or duos. Loring reached #2 with Carl Anderson in 1986 with "Friends and Lovers" and Thicke topped the chart in 2013 with "Blurred Lines."
