Ridin The Rails

While looking through the pictures from the post below, I was reminded of the scene from Ridin The Rails where Johnny Cash is sitting around a fire with some confederate soldiers singing “The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down.” I think it’s a pretty safe bet to say that if I were a soldier during the Civil War and I was tired and hurt and I’d lost all my friends and family and had watched hundreds of people painfully die from the bullet that I had put in their heart, I’d have a big grin on my face if I heard that voice sing me that song. I mean, really, could you imagine sitting at a fire and looking through the flames to see that face? Cheer up dude that looks like Ernest.

Watch the video and know what I’m talking about:
