    This is one of my wife's 3 favorite Cash songs, I figure someone will do at least 1 of the other 2 at some point this week, so I did this one for now.

    I have always had Roy Orbison up there at the top of my list of great singers, and this has been confirmed by my attempts to do this one, and a few others. Didn't he have an amazing range? For the first time ever, I have had to use a capo, to get the right compromise between reaching the notes and getting easy-ish chord changes.
    (Please excuse the distant barking of Alfie, as people arrive for a party next door, in verse 2. I just didn't want to have another go).

    I've ended up doing a Hank Williams song that was covered by both Johnny Cash and Roy Orbison. I have to say though that my favourite version is by Jerry Lee Lewis, so I'm mixing with good company here.

    One of my all time favorite songs. Recorded by a slew of artists, including prominently by Johnny Cash, but Del Reeves, who I'm a big fan of, did my favorite version of this.

    I thought maybe some of our ladies would have a go at the higher pitched Orbison songs, his range was much wider than most men can get up to.

    Roy Orbison had the greatest singing voice in the history of rock n roll ... I do not
