It’s midnight at a liquor store in Texas; what could go wrong? If Johnny Cash is singing the song, you can bet something will.
In a throughly modern turn of events, the long-long track — one among a pack of 12 that was recorded over 30 years ago and discovered by his son John Carter Cash — now has an animated lyric video.
This particular song was produced by the legendary Billy Sherrill and is a country music standard composed by Adam Mitchell. It has been performed previously by Merle Haggard and Waylon Jennings. Cash puts his own spin on it here, and the animation of a pointed pistol aimed right at the viewer adds some gravity to the experience of listening to it.
