      Johnny Cash - Ballad Of Barbara Música y Letra

      In a southern town where I was born
      That's where I got my education
      I worked in the fields and I walked in the woods
      And I wondered at creation.
      
      I recall the sun in a sky of blue
      And the smell of green things growin'
      And the seasons chang'd and I lived each day
      Just the way the wind was blowin'.
      
      Then I heard of a cultured city life
      Breath takin' lofty steeples
      And the day I called myself a man
      I left my land and my people.
      
      And I rambled north and I rambled east
      And I tested and I tasted
      And a girl or two, took me round and round
      But they always left me wasted.
      
      In a world that's all concrete and steel
      With nothin' green ever growin'
      Where the buildings hide the risin' sun
      And they blocked the free winds from blowin.
      
      Where you sleep all day and you wake all night
      To a world of drink and laughter
      I met that girl that I was sure would be
      The one that I was after.
      
      In a soft blue gown and formal tux
      Beneath that lofty steeple
      He said, "Do you Barbara, take this man,
      Will you be one of his people?"
      
      And she said, "I will." and she said, "I do."
      And the world looked mighty pretty
      And we lived in a fancy downtown flat
      'Cause she loved the noisy city.
      
      But the days grew cold beneath a yellow sky
      And I longed for green things growin'
      And the thoughts of home and the people there
      But she'd not agreed to goin'.
      
      Then her hazel eyes turned away from me
      With a look that wasn't pretty
      And she turned into concrete and steel
      And she said, "I'll take the city."
      
      Now the cars go by on the interstate
      And my pack is on my shoulder
      But I'm goin' home, where I belong
      Much wiser now and older.
