"I Walk the Line (Johnny Cash cover)" as written by Rodney Crowell and Johnny Cash....
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, very easy to be true
I find myself alone when each day is through
Yes, I'll admit I'm a fool for you
Because you're mine, I walk the line

As sure as night is dark and day is light
I keep you on my mind both day and night
And happiness I've known proves that it's right
Because you're mine, I walk the line

You've got a way to keep me on your side
You give me cause for love that I can't hide
For you I know I'd even try to turn the tide
Because you're mine, I walk the line

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

    General CommentF'n A, this is how you make a Johnny Cash cover. Johnny Cash would be proud. His was still better though.

    General CommentCan't say this is better than Johnny Cash version because he wrote it and sung it how he saw fit but i think live sing it better for its more slow and soft which suits the lyrics
