Music Monday: When It’s Springtime in Alaska (It’s Forty Below) by Johnny Cash and June Carter

I am on my second swing through the Rust Belt and did stints in Houston and north Florida.  I know enough to take winters up here over summers down there.  But this is a bit much.

I can’t believe it took me this long to get to Johnny Cash.  When It’s Springtime in Alaska was originally a Johnny Horton song, but I prefer Cash’s version.  It’s one of Cash’s great songs about murder—he released enough of them to fill out one CD in a boxed set.

When It’s Springtime in Alaska is off Cash’s album Orange Blossom Special.
