House of Cash

Album: Troubadour (2008)
  • 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

    [Chorus]

    And the ring of fire comes full circle
    And the ring of fire comes all the way around Writer/s: MONTY HOLMES, LESLIE WINN SATCHER
