Johnny Cash

Johnny Cash - Original Truther???

The "Man In Black" had seen it all - protests against the Vietnam War, social injustices, lies, cover-ups, etc. He reached out and sung the songs to the poor, the downtrodden, and the forgotten such as prisoners, veterans, etc. Most of all, he was a true PATRIOT who loved his country and what it stood for...

In the late 60's he wrote a song called "What Is Truth" and it's as important a message now as it was back then - the lyrics are as follows:

WHAT IS TRUTH (by Johnny Cash)

The old man turned off the radio
Said, "Where did all of the old songs go
Kids sure play funny music these daysThey play it in the strangest ways"
Said, "it looks to me like they've all gone wild
It was peaceful back when I was a child"
Well, man, could it be that the girls and boys
Are trying to be heard above your noise?
And the lonely voice of youth cries "What is truth?"

A little boy of three sittin' on the floor
Looks up and says, "Daddy, what is war?"
"son, that's when people fight and die"
The little boy of three says "Daddy, why?"
A young man of seventeen in Sunday school
Being taught the golden rule
And by the time another year has gone around
