Johnny Cash Show: Johnny Cash – Sunday Morning Coming Down

Johnny Cash – Sunday Morning Coming Down Well, I woke up Sunday morning With no way to hold my head that didn’t hurt. And the beer I had for breakfast wasn’t bad, So I had one more for dessert.

Louis Armstrong on “The Johnny Cash Show” – total and uncut

From the October 28, 1970 episode of Cash’s Television selection show, Armstrong sings “Crystal Chandeliers” and “Ramblin’ Rose” with the band then duets with Cash on the Jimmy Rodgers classic “Blue Yodel #9.” There are other, partial versions of this efficiency on-line, but this is the only total one I’ve found. It is so cool to see Armstrong killing on the stage at the Grand Ole Opry, when a decade earlier they wouldn’t have let him in the servant’s entrance.
