Johnny Cash: A Little Farther... Down The Line

J. Kordosh, Creem, June 1988

ONSTAGE, JOHNNY Cash likes to joke about his daughter Rosanne's recording of 'Tennessee Flat Top Box': "She played it for me and I said, 'That's real pretty, honey. And I want to thank you for recording it.' And she said 'Why?' And I said, 'Because I wrote it'."

It gets a big laugh, but Cash isn't joking.
