Handwritten lyrics to Cash’s hit song ‘I Walk the Line’ on a white 9 x 11.25 sheet, signed at the conclusion in black ink, “Johnny Cash, 1956.” Cash pens four verses from the song, in part: “I keep a close watch on this heart of mine / I keep my eyes wide open all the time / I keep the ends out for the tie that binds / Because you're mine, I walk the line / I find it very easy to be true / I find myself alone when each days thru / Yes I’ll admit that I’m a fool for you / Because you’re mine I walk the line.” Cash makes a pair of corrections, and adds “Repeat Verse 1” at the conclusion. In fine condition, with a spot of trivial brushing. Written by Cash for his first wife Vivian Liberto while he was stationed as an Air Force radio operator in Germany, ‘I Walk the Line’ was recorded in 1956 and became Cash’s first number one Billboard hit, remaining on the record charts for over 43 weeks and selling over two million copies. A wonderful, complete lyric sheet, crisply penned by the man in black in the year of its release. Pre-certified REAL.
