God's Gonna Cut You Down

There's lots I want to write about in the coming days, and I'm still gathering my thoughts on all of that -- more in the creative front shortly. In the meantime, I heard a new song in the past few days that I think is well worth sharing.

This is, in my opinion, one of the best Johnny Cash songs ever -- and the multitude of celebrities appearing in this video (most of whom I like, some of whom I couldn't care less about) make it even more interesting. Definitely a great tribute to an incredible artist.....

The arrangement of Johnny Cash’s “God’s Gonna Cut you Down” is quite a change from the original version, 50 years or so ago, by Odetta. It was originally a spiritual (origins unknown) and she did a “walking song” (rhythm) version of it. Johnny’s is more up to date, I guess, but the message is still the same. (Ahhh, the 60s – folk songs, Odetta, PP&M… *sigh*)
