“Gold All Over The Ground”, one of the tracks from Brad Paisley‘s new album Love and War, is honouring the one & only Johnny Cash.
Not only do you hear the Man in Black at the beginning & end, but some of the lyrics themselves come from a poem he wrote in 1967 about his unwavering love for June Carter Cash.
“And I’d bundle you in kindness until you cling to me / We’d sit beneath strong branches / My arms would twine around / I’d turn your green to emerald / And give you gold all over the ground,” has Brad borrowing from the poem with the beautiful accompaniment of guitar and mandolin.
And now…the song!
