Johnny Cash: What’s wrong with the way I sing it?
Sam Phillips: I don’t believe you.
JC: You saying I don’t believe in God?
SP: You know exactly what I’m telling you.
See, we’ve already heard that song a hundred times just like that, just like how you sang it. All right, let’s bring it home. If you was hit by a truck you were lying out in that gutter dying and you had time to sing one song, just one song, people would remember before you’re dirt, one song that would let God know what you felt about your time here on earth, one song that would sum you up, you telling me that’s the song you’d sing? Something real something you felt? That’s the kind of song people want to hear. That’s the kind of song that truly saves people.
