When a Song Is a Short Story--Folsom Prison Blues (Monday Music)

I love this song--it's like a short story waiting to be written, don't you think?

  1. Cash had a lot of great songs like that. I also really enjoy 16 Horsepower's cover of the French World War 2 resistance song "The Partisan."

  2. Will check out that cover... Everlast did a good cover of Folsom Prison Blues.

    It's that bit of country influence, I think. I'm not a fan of country music, but that genre seems to do the best job weaving story into songs.

  3. I never appreciate him until the last ten years or so.
