The music started on Sunday with the Johnny & The Heartbreakers cover of “Change the Locks” a Lucinda Wiliams 

I changed the lock on my front door
So you can’t see me anymore
And you can’t come inside my house
And you can’t lie down on my couch
I changed the lock on my front door

Bound by wild desire
I fell into a ring of fire.

The music on Sunday opened with Johnny & The Heartbreakers with “I Won’t Back Down”. 

Last night, I watched the documentary  called “Runnin’ Down a Dream” about Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers on Netflix. I’ve seen it before and wanted to watch it again to see if it helped with my question to see if Tom Petty singing Johnny Cash’s “Don’t Take Your Guns To Town”, is simply a figment of my imagination. 

The quest continues because it wasn’t inside this documentary. 

The first song this morning was what I call a duet from Johnny Cash & Tommy Petty off of the Album where it was more Johnny Cash & The Heartbreakers as much as anything. “I Won’t Back Down”. Cash covered two Petty songs over the years, this one and “Southern Accents”, and I’m paraphrasing, but Tom felt like they were no longer his songs after hearing Johnny’s versions.

Favorite Line:

And I’ll keep this world from draggin’ me down
Gonna stand my ground

The music opened earlier with the humming and the twang of Johnny Cash, with “Ghost Riders In The Sky

”. 

Favorite Line:

Then cowboy change your ways today or with us you will ride
Trying to catch the devil’s herd across these endless skies

The first song on Saturday morning was a live performance of “Folsom Prison Blues”, by Johnny Cash, live at Folsom Prison.

Favorite Line:

Well when I was just a baby my mama told me son
Always be a good boy don’t ever play with guns
Well I shot a man in Reno just to watch him die
