They say he is gone and he'll never be back.
He was quite the legend, this man in black.
His songs were amazing and would make you cry.
And that's something my friend that will never die.

He was a country music singer that sang about a ring of fire.
Now he must be singing with the angels in that heavenly choir.
I think there must be a grand ole opry up in the sky.
That's where all the country music singers go when they die.

I bet Johnny is still performing somewhere up there.
And if you listen real careful in the quiet night air.
You'll hear a deep voice saying......
Hello,  I'm Johnny Cash!

In loving memory of one of my favorite country music stars,
Johnny Cash, you will be missed!
