Solitary Man – JOHNNY CASH

Solitary man é a segunda música do álbum American III: Solitary Man de Johnny Cash em sua série American. Entre Unchained e este álbum, a saúde de Johnny Cash declinou devido a vários fatores, até que ele foi hospitalizado com pneumonia. A doença o forçou a encurtar a turnê. Este álbum contém a resposta de Cash à doença, tipificada pela versão de I Won’t Back Down, de Tom Petty, bem como de One, do U2. Da mesma forma que os outros álbuns de Cash produzidos por Rick Rubin, American III ganhou o Grammy como Melhor Performance Masculina em Solitary Man, de Neil Diamond.

Don’t know that I will but until love can find me
And the girl who’ll stay and won’t play games behind me
I’ll be what I am
A solitary man

Johny CASH

Belinda was mine ‘til the time that I found her
Holdin’ Jim
And lovin’ him
Then Sue came along
Loved me strong
That’s what I thought
Me and Sue
But that died, too.
Don’t know that I will but until I can find me
A girl who’ll stay and won’t play games behind me
I’ll be what I am
A Solitary Man
Solitary Man
I’ve had it to here, being where love’s a small word
A part time thing
A paper ring
I know it’s been done havin’ one girl who loved me
Right or wrong
Weak or strong
Don’t know that I will but until I can find me
The girl who’ll stay and won’t play games behind me
I’ll be what I am
A Solitary Man
A Solitary Man
Don’t know that I will but until love can find me
And the girl who’ll stay and won’t play games behind me
I’ll be what I am
A solitary man
A solitary man
