The Devil's Music

#2: Mean As Hell by Johnny Cash

The story of a Hell on Earth created by Satan as told by the great man Johnny Cash. More spoken than sung, 'tis a tale that in spite of its horrific setting, genuinely warms my old cockles being that it's narrated by Cash's wonderful rich baritone voice. It appears on his gunslinging concept double-album 'Sings The Ballads Of The True West' from 1965 (although the material contained was recorded over a six year period).
