      Johnny Cash - The Man Who Couldn't Cry Música y Letra

      There once was a man who just couldn't cry
      He hadn't cried for years and for years
      Napalmed babies and the movie love story
      For instance could not produce tears
      As a child he had cried as all children will
      Then at some point his tear ducts ran dry
      He grew to be a man, the feces hit the fan
      Things got bad, but he couldn't cry
      
      His dog was run over, his wife up and left him
      And after that he got sacked from his job
      Lost his arm in the war, was laughed at by a whore
      Ah, but sill not a sniffle or sob
      
      His novel was refused, his movie was panned
      And his big Broadway show was a flop 
      
      He got sent off to jail; you guessed it, no bail
      Oh, but still not a dribble or drop
      
      In jail he was beaten, bullied and buggered
      And made to make license plates
      Water and bread was all he was fed
      But not once did a tear stain his face
      
      Doctors were called in, scientists, too
      Theologians were last and practically least 
      
      They all agreed sure enough; this was sure no cream puff
      But in fact an insensitive beast
      
      He was removed from jail and placed in a place
      For the insensitive and the insane
      He played lots of chess and made lots of friends
      And he wept every time it would rain
      
      Once it rained forty days and it rained forty nights
      And he cried and he cried and he cried and he cried 
      
      On the forty-first day, he passed away
      He just dehydrated and died
      
      Well, he went up to heaven, located his dog
      Not only that, but he rejoined his arm
      Down below, all the critics, they loot it all back
      Cancer robbed the whore of her charm
      
      His ex-wife died of stretch marks, his ex-employer went broke
      The theologians were finally found out 
      
      Right down to the ground, that old jail house burned down
      The earth suffered perpetual drought
