A collection of never-before-published poems by Johnny Cash, edited and introduced by Pulitzer-prize winning poet Paul Muldoon with a foreword by John Carter Cash. Illustrated with facsimile reproductions of Cash's own handwritten pages. Since his first recordings in 1955, Johnny Cash was an icon in the music world. In this collection of poems and song lyrics that have never been published before, we see the world through his eyes and view his reflection on his own interior reality, his frailties and his strengths alike. In his hallmark voice, he pens verses about love, pain, freedom, and mortality, and expresses insights on culture, his family, his fame, even Christmas. Forever Words confirms Johnny Cash as a brilliant and singular American literary figure. His music is a part of our collective history, and here the depth of his artistry and talent become even more evident.

“Forever Words” contains unpublished poetry and song lyrics written by Johnny Cash.
They are meaningful, touching and give you a good insight into the man also called the Man in Black. His poems express his views in every day life and world shocking events, his songs tell touching little stories about love, death, urges and so on.

This book is really something for (the still growing) fan base Cash still has. They give you insight in the man, more then just listening to his songs. This book gives you a chance to really get into them.
