Its still Good Friday here in NYC so ‘Jesus died for nothing, I suppose’
Still, I like the raw, austere purity that Cash brings to the song.

“President Higgins said it was with great sadness he learned of Prine’s death describing him as a great friend of Ireland….
“John’s songs are marked by a sensitivity and social conscience and capture the experience of those on the margins in societies, who have suffered broken dreams, broken homes, and broken hearts.

He was held in deep affection and warmth in particular in the village of Kinvara, where he had a home, and where his sessions in Greene’s were legendary.”
