Welcome to HOMEGROWN SESSION NUMBER 6. To Mr. Bob Wootton, Cash' leadguitarist for well over 30 years!

This time my alltime favourite Johnny Cash song 'SOUTH WIND'.
Johnny Cash recorded the song on february 17th of 1969 (My Dad's 23rd Birthday. He has got me in touch with the music of Johnny Cash when i was very very young. Thanks Dad !). It was the first time EVER in studio that Bob Wootton recorded with and for Johnny Cash. The track 'South Wind' with recordingnumber NCO-98936 was followed by the recording of the Merle Travis song 'The devil to pay' (NCO-98937) the same day. Both songs ended up originally for the first time on the 1969-album 'Hello, I'm Johnny Cash'.

LYRICS to 'SOUTH WIND' (written by Johnny Cash)

South Wind
You picked her up in Jacksonville
and left me cold and lonesome in the rain.
South Wind
You took her off to Nashville
left me chokin' in the smoke behind the train.
And you go, woo-woo-wooo
She's gone again on the South Wind.

South Wind
I need a 40 dollar ticket
and about this time tomorrow i'll be gone.
South Wind
But if i had 40 dollars i would buy myself a smile to carry on.
And you go ....

South Wind
Take her fast and take her far
'cause that's the way she always likes to go.
South Wind
I will be waitin' for the roundtrip ticket
if you'll bring her back and i done told her so.
And you go ...


SOUTHWIND, yeah........ the wind of the South.... Spain maybe???

Love and peace to all of you.
