In 1969 Johnny Cash had a #28 hit with a song that was written by the author of children’s books! Shel Silverstein wrote what would become Johnny’s biggest pop chart success, ‘A Boy Named Sue.’
Here is a sometimes blurry video of Johnny performing the song on the This Is Tom Jones, the popular musical-variety TV show hosted by, of course, Tom Jones. Enjoy!
You can listen to music Johnny Cash, Tom Jones, and other artists from the 60s & 70s on Dusty Discs Radio.
