Country Trash (American 3) - Johnny Cash

Johnny Cash made a third career out of covering other people's songs towards the end of his life, in the American Records series. It's only appropriate that we talk about a song that he did himself earlier in his career, and then "covered" again in American 3, "Country Trash". It's an upbeat, traditional song about country living in the late 1800s. As Johnny was want to do, he sets the final expectations at the end: "We'll all be equal under the grass / And God's got a heaven for country trash".
