Happy Birthday, Johnny

Johnny Cash

We all love the great Johnny Cash here at The Vampire’s Wife, on the day of his 87th birthday. Such a rich, smooth, voice, torn from the depths. Here is my favourite song, where Johnny Cash duets with Bob Dylan on Girl From The North Country. So many memories attached to this song! Happy Birthday Johnny, wherever you may be! Love Susie

Girl From The North Country

Well, if you’re travelin’ in the north country fair
Where the winds hit heavy on the borderline
Remember me to one who lives there
She once was a true love of mine

Well, if you go when the snowflakes storm
When the rivers freeze and summer ends
Please see if she’s wearing a coat so warm
To keep her from the howlin’ winds

Please see for me if her hair hangs long,
If it rolls and flows all down her breast.
Please see for me if her hair hangs long,
That’s the way I remember her best.

I’m a-wonderin’ if she remembers me at all
Many times I’ve often prayed
In the darkness of my night
In the brightness of my day

So if you’re travelin’ in the north country fair
Where the winds hit heavy on the borderline
Remember me to one who lives there
She once was a true love of mine
