"Ring of Fire (Johnny Cash cover)" as written by and June Carter Merle Kilgore....
Love is a burning thing
And it makes a fiery ring
Bound by the wild desire
I fell into a ring of fire

I fell into a burning ring of fire
I went down, down, down
And the flames went up higher
And it burns, burns, burns
The ring of fire, the ring of fire

The taste of love is sweet
When hearts like ours meet
I fell for you like a child
Oh, and the fire went wild

I fell into burning ring of fire
I went down, down, down
And the flames went up higher
And it burns, burns, burns
The ring of fire, the ring of fire

Love is a burning thing
And it makes a fiery ring
Bound by your wild desire
I fell into a ring of fire

I fell into a burning ring of fire
I went down, down, down
And the flames went higher

I fell into a burning ring of fire
I went down, down, down
And the flames got higher
And it burns, ooh it burns

    General CommentI am reading on his facebook now. He originally started the song too high, but went along with it anyway.
    I like the version even though I know many don't.
    I think we have the next American Idol here.

    General CommentI have one thing to say about this song...
    S-E-X-Y.

    LOL. This song perfectly describes how I became an Adam fan. I didn't really think too much of him before this performance on AI. First I thought, "Wow, he really has guts to take a risk like that..." but then I noticed how freaking hot he was. =D I agreed with Kara when she said that she was confused "but strangely happy." It was so confusing. There was just SOMETHING about him... And when I fell into that burning Ring of Fire, I never wanted to leave.
    Love it, love it, love it. Adam is amazing.

    General CommentWhat an amazing cover. I've always found the original to be too slow, and Johnny Cash sounded like he was bored or falling asleep. Adam's voice matches the energy and passion in the lyrics.
