In My Life
Johnny Cash Lyrics


There are places I'll remember
All my life
Though some have changed
Some forever
Not for better
Some have gone and some remain
All these places have their moments
With lovers and friends
I still can recall
Some are dead and some are living
In my life
I've loved them all

But if all these friends and lovers
There is no one
Compares with you
And these memories
Lose their meaning
When I think of love
As something new

Though I know I'll never lose affection
For people and things that went before
I know I'll often stop and think about them
In my life
I love you more

Though I know I'll never lose affection
For people and things that went before
I know I'll often stop and think about them
In my life
I love you more
In my life
I love you more

The Beatles version is the one you play at the wedding, the Johnny Cash version is the one you play at the funeral

...and Ozzy's version is the one played on the way to the mental asylum/prison because you just couldn't take it anymore..

Johnny cash is the dark side of us

I think The Beatles version and Cash's versions of this song both represent something different. The Beatles one is youthful and happy, a celebration of love at a younger age but somehow still mature enough to work, and Cash's version is a sparse, older version which feels more like a retrospective than a look into the future. Both songs work brilliantly for each artist; the fact that Cash can cover such a celebrated song and make it something special is a real credit to him as an artist, and the fact that the Beatles (Lennon specifically) could write a song like this which would be covered years later by one of the most celebrated artists of all time is a credit to them also. Beautiful song, and probably the best cover of this song.

that's what makes the beatles version so special , that they had so much emotional maturity for their age, too much probably. War babies are more likely to be that way. One of their best songs and the track that changed everything, because it was consciously written by Lennon, honest and vulnerable. Yesterday was Paul writing about his mum but not knowing it and the melody masks. I like this version but I now have to listen to Lennon's best vocal performance to make it right again.

Johnny Cash´s voice is broken...like it is after a life full of success, pain, love, loneliness. good feelings and bad feelings , drugs and alcohol..and sometimes it´s bitter to remember that all that is gone ...and reminds your evanescence...this is a beautiful version of this song..😥💘
