Don't read this because it actually works. You will be kissed on the nearest Friday by the love of your life. Tomorrow will be the best day of your life.however if you don't post this on at least 5 songs in the next 143 minutes. The worst day of your life will be tomorrow. When your done press f6 in the comment section, your lovers name will come in big letters. This is scary because it actually works

But seriously Johnny Cash has that wonderful deep voice that most country singers have (that are fun to listen to) and I love how all his songs have the same beginning and the very rhythmic guitar part.
