Johnny Cash – Wayfaring Stranger

Johnny Cash’s recording of Wayfaring Stranger. Lyrics : I’m just a poor wayfaring stranger Traveling thru this world below Theres no sickness, no toil, no danger In that bright land to which I go Im going there to see my Father And all my loved ones who’ve gone old Im just going over Jordan Im just going over home I know dark clouds will gather round me, I know my way is hard and steep But beauteous fields arise before me Where Gods redeemed their vigils keep Im going there to see my Mother She said shed meet me when I come So I’m just going over Jordan I’m just going over home I’m just going over Jordan I’m just going over home

Johnny Cash – The first time ever I saw your face

“The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face” is a 1957 folk song written by political singer/songwriter Ewan MacColl for Peggy Seeger, who was later to become his wife. At the time the couple were lovers, although MacColl was married to someone else. The song entered the pop mainstream when it was released by Peter, Paul and Mary (Album: See What Tomorrow Brings, 1965), and was later recorded by Roberta Flack, in 1972. The Flack version was much slower than the original: an early solo recording by Seeger, for example, clocked in at two and a half minutes long, whereas Flack’s is more than twice that length. It was subsequently covered by numerous other artists. “The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face” has been covered by numerous artists such as Joe and Eddie, Elvis Presley, George Michael, Marianne Faithfull, Kate Havnevik, the Kingston Trio, Harry Belafonte, June Tabor, the Chad Mitchell Trio-Mike Kobluk solo, Gordon Lightfoot, Vern Gosdin, Shirley Bassey, Steven Houghton, Bert Jansch, Maria Taylor, The Easy Club, Peter, Paul and Mary, We Five, Johnny Cash, The Chi-Lites, José Carreras, Michael Sweet, Jeffrey Gaines, Isaac Hayes, Nana Mouskouri, Bradley Joseph, Joanna Law, Richard Marx, Alison Moyet, Stereophonics & Jools Holland, Mel Tormé, Vanessa L.
