I drove in from Providence RI this morning and  in my mad dash South on Tuesday I had left the stereo on. This masterpiece was playing as I turned the key and stepped inside.

I knew the song was a cover from a much younger musician, but no more. So later I went looking for a video of the performance .

Someone must have written a piece concerning such lyrics sung by Cash versus a much younger man. I found the essay linked below and it completely informed and closed this thought for me. It was penned by Zaron Burnett III an LA based freelance writer and his work is a very good read

“Hurt”  “That time when Johnny Cash stole Trent Reznors best song”
