I did a search and can't find this on here yet. If it's a dupe, go ahead and rag on me, I can take it!

Johnny Cash. Who. Never the twain shall meet? Guess again - this is funny and clever. All it needs is a steel!

Don , that was fantastic, I can't stop laughing, two of my favorites, I'm checking out this guys other stuff it's just a riot, He sings really great too, Who is this guy? This just made my day, I don't know why but that bit at the end where he keeps looking from camera to camera just kills me. Thanks

Bryan, I have no idea who he is, I saw the post on a car forum's "non-cars" section. Talk about thinking outside the box! I'm waiting for the other half - Johnny Cash's lyrics, sung to The Who's music!

And it offers lots of possibilities. Next time I hear a Ray Price song, I'll start singing "I Can't Get No Satisfaction" to see if it fits!

Brooks, you think it really could be him? That would be so cool, gotta admit the vocals are similar and we all know Junior is a pretty funny guy,

I sat in with a band last year that likes to play BB's "The Thrill is Gone" and then using the same progression morph that into "Long Train Running" then back to "The Thrill is Gone".

The progression is very similar it actually works.

Reminds me of the oldie:

What do you call a guy who stands 6'8" and weighs 275?

"Sir".

This mashup of Pinball Wizard and Folsom Prison Blues has been around for over 30 years. I first heard in back in 1984 at a weekly open mic my band hosted. A guy would come in and sing it every week! It was funny then and it still is. There are a lot of Youtube videos of other people doing the mashup, but this clown one is the best by far.
