Johnny Cash And June Carter – Jackson Lyrics

 

[ Johnny Cash & June Carter)

We got married in a fever, hotter than a pepper sprout

We’ve been talkin’ ’bout Jackson, ever since the fire went out

 

[ Johnny Cash ]

I’m going to Jackson, I’m gonna mess around

Yeah, I’m goin’ to Jackson

Look out Jackson town

 

[ June Carter ]

Well, go on down to Jackson; go ahead and wreck your health

Go play your hand you big-talkin’ man, make a big fool of yourself

Yeah, go to Jackson; go comb your hair!

 

[Johnny Cash ]

Honey, I’m gonna snowball Jackson

 

[ June Carter ]

See if I care

 

[ Johnny Cash ]

When I breeze into that city, people gonna stoop and bow

 

[ June Carter ]

Hah!!

 

[ Johnny Cash ]

All them women gonna make me, teach ’em what they don’t know how

I’m goin’ to Jackson, you turn-a loose-a my coat

‘Cos I’m goin’ to Jackson

 

[ June Carter ]

“Goodbye,” that’s all she wrote

 

[ June Carter ]

But they’ll laugh at you in Jackson, and I’ll be dancin’ on a Pony Keg

They’ll lead you ’round town like a scolded hound

With your tail tucked between your legs

Yeah, go to Jackson, you big-talkin’ man

And I’ll be waitin’ in Jackson, behind my Japan Fan

 

[ Johnny Cash & June Carter ]

Well now, We got married in a fever, hotter than a pepper Sprout

We’ve been talkin’ ’bout Jackson, ever since the fire went out

I’m goin’ to Jackson, and that’s a fact

Yeah, we’re goin’ to Jackson, ain’t never comin’ back

 

[ June Carter]

Mmmmmmmmmmmmmm mhmmmmmmm mmmmmmmmmmmm

 

[ Johnny Cash ]

Well, we got married in a fever, hotter than a pepper sprout’

And we’ve been talkin’ ’bout Jackson, ever since the fire went…
