Working handwritten lyrics to Cash’s song ‘King of the Hill,’ on both sides of an 8.25 x 11 lined sheet. Lyrics read, in part: "If you're gonna be King of the Hill / So he left his job at the cotton mill / in the Harlan mines / The last one out at quittin time / Already workin when the whistle blew / Never complain about a job to do / When they asked who can you say I will / Can be king of the hill." In very good condition, with rough edges and scattered creasing and soiling. Cash’s working lyrics are seldom available, with this song providing a great example of the creative process. Pre-certified Roger Epperson/REAL and RR Auction COA.
