A song for the Weekend: Cocaine Blues

I have decided to be economical this weekend, or lazy, it depends on your point of view really. But anyway I have decided to merge my song for the weekend post with my song challenge post. So its day 08, which means its time to share a song that I know all the words to. I was going to post this yesterday with Bob Dylan’s The Hurricane but I could not find a good version on youtube. So today I have decided to make my song for the weekend, one that I know all the words. Which brings me in to Johnny Cash.

Cocaine Blues is a great tune originally released as ‘Little Sadie’ and made famous by Johnny Cash. The song has been tweaked many timed and released by many artists including Bob Dylan, but none of these versions comes close to Johnny Cash’s iconic Folsom Prison live concert version. Which coincidentally enough is embedded below. So nothing else to do but click the play button, wait for the video to stream depending on your broadband speed, and enjoy 🙂
