White men singing

I can't seem to get enough of this song lately. Lucas has been asking to see a lot of Johnny Cash videos ("Gee-tar! Cash!"), and I'm a huge fan of Willie Nelson and especially Kris Kristofferson. I have to admit that while Waylon Jennings is fun, I'd rather see Merle Haggard in his role. . .

Anyhoo, here's a video of a live performance:

I especially like Johnny Cash as a starship pilot. Make it so, Mr. Cash.

You really are raising that child right.

As soon as you started listing the names I actually shouted "Highwayman!" out loud. I love that song so much.

(And it was just perfect, considering the fact that I'm currently wading my way through marking American West papers.)

Wow, Johnny's verse is so heavy! What a guy. Our son could do worse for role models.

We really are bringing him up right.
