A song about the legend Johnny Cash and fellow musicians and people who came out of Sun Records.


(V.1)
Everyone has heroes
Some wear capes
but mine played guitar and sang until his grave
Sun Records was the place to be
I wish I could have been there
Making music, making history
without a care

(V.2)
JR was one of four and in the class of 55
A million dollar quarter only one is still alive
music had an influence from day to day
and I’d give anything have them play to me

(Chorus)
Oh If I had been alive in 1955 back when all the icons were still alive Would I have fallen in love
or would I thank the gods above
That I was witnessing a miracle The world would be proud of
If I had got the chance to play guitar with him
See Elvis in the breeze or Jerry play those keys
See Roy in his glasses
See Carl play to the masses
Would Sam like me, would he wanna sign me?
If I had been alive, in Johnny Cash’s time.

(V.3)
The love of his life, a mother and wife
June showed him the light
so he could play one more night
From Folsom prison blues he inspired tattoos
He walked the line through a ring of fire and still managed to shine

(Chorus)
Oh If I had been alive in 1955 back when all the icons were still alive Would I have fallen in love
or would I thank the gods above
That I was witnessing a miracle The world would be proud of
If I had got the chance to play guitar with him
See Elvis in the breeze or Jerry play those keys
See Roy in his glasses
See Carl play to the masses
Would Sam like me, would he wanna sign me?
If I had been alive, in Johnny Cash’s time.

(Bridge)
Could I have helped them through their struggles
And made them see
The people that they influenced, people like me
I’d give anything to know what it was like to be in their presence
I bet they had no idea they’d reach people like me

(Chorus)
Oh If I had been alive in 1955 back when all the icons were still alive Would I have fallen in love
or would I thank the gods above
That I was witnessing a miracle The world would be proud of
If I had got the chance to play guitar with him
See Elvis in the breeze or Jerry play those keys
See Roy in his glasses
See Carl play to the masses
Would Sam like me, would he wanna sign me?
If I had been alive, in Johnny Cash’s time.

The singer has a sweet innocence but knows her stuff. Wonder if she knows Mr. Cash has a page here at IMP? This song moved me, watch out for Caitlin!
