Walk the Line (Again)

Lagi dengerin I Walk The Line-nya Johnny Cash jadi ingat film biografi Johnny Cash – Walk the Line. Dan ternyata, saya sudah pernah menuliskan tentang film ini 5 tahun lalu! Ini dia. Nah, lagu-lagunya Johnny Cash memang luar biasa. Yang bikin lebih luar biasa lagi adalah hampir semua lagu-lagunya punya arti sesuai dengan apa yang dialami Johnny. He’s a legend!

Favorit saya tentu saja I Walk the Line dan Ring of Fire! 🙂 Try them!

Kembali ke posting 5 tahun lalu, ternyata saya menggunakan kutipan percakapan Jerry Lee dan June Carter:

Jerry Lee Lewis : We’re all going to hell for the songs we sing!
June Carter : And what about me, Jerry Lee; am I going to hell too?
Jerry Lee Lewis : No, June, you’re beautiful.

Ini lirik I Walk the Line yang powerful, tentang June yang sangat “khawatir” dengan Johnny. Lagu ini diciptakan oleh June dan dinyanyikan Johnny.

I keep a close watch on this heart of mine
I keep my eyes wide open all the time
I keep the ends out for the tie that binds
Because you’re mine
I walk the line

I find it very, very easy to be true
I find myself alone when each day is through
Yes, I’ll admit I’m a fool for you
Because you’re mine
I walk the line

As sure as night is dark and day is light
I keep you on my mind both day and night
And happiness I’ve known proves that it’s right
Because you’re mine
I walk the line

You’ve got a way to keep me on your side
You give me cause for love that I can’t hide
For you I know I’d even try to turn the tide
Because you’re mine
I walk the line
