The Personal Notes of Johnny Cash


Some people rely on notes to keep their lives organized and Johnny Cash was definitely one of these people. Recently, a few of these notes surfaced, providing us with a little more insight into Mr. Cash, his romance with June and how the singer organized his days.

In the first note, Cash writes to his beloved wife, ending the note by saying, “The fire and excitement may be gone now that we don’t go out there and sing them anymore, but the ring of fire still burns around you and I, keeping our love hotter than a pepper sprout.” Yes, he used his own song lyrics to write to his wife, but hey, they’re classics for a reason. Read one of his to-do lists and see the note to June after the jump.

Apparently, Cash liked to organize everything in his life. While most people only add things they’ll forget to do otherwise, this list even reminds Johnny when to visit the restroom. Leaving us with this burning question: would he forget if he didn’t write it down?
