      Johnny Cash - Let Him Roll Música y Letra

      Let him roll, boys let him roll
      I bet he's gone to dallas rest his soul
      
      Now he was a wino, tried and true
      Done about everything there is to do
      He worked on freighters, he worked in bars
      He worked on farms, 'n he worked on cars
      
      Now it was white port whine, that put that look in his eye
      That grown men get when they need to cry
      And we sat down on the curb to rest
      And his head just fell down on his chest
      
      He said "every single day it gets
      Just a little bit harder to handle and yet..."
      Then he lost the thread and his mind got cluttered
      The words just rolled off down in the gutter
      
      He was a elevator man in a cheap hotel
      In exchange for the rent on a one room cell
      And he's years old before his time
      No thanks to the world, and the white port wine
      
      And he said "son", he always called me son
      He said, "life for you has just begun"
      And then he told me the story that i heard before
      How he fell in love with a dallas whore
      
      He could cut through the years to the very night
      That it all ended, in a whore house fight
      And she turned his last proposal down
      In favor of being a girl about town
      
      Now it's been seventeen years right in line
      And he ain't been straight none of the time
      It's too many years of fightin' the weather
      And too many nights of not being together
      
      So he died...
      
      Let him roll, boys let him roll
      I bet he's gone to dallas rest his soul
      Let him roll, boys let him roll
      He always thought that heaven
      Was just a dallas whore
      
      When they went through his personal affects
      In among the stubs from the welfare checks
      Was a crumblin' picture of a girl in a door
      An address in dallas, and nothin' more
      
      Well the welfare people provided the priest
      And a couple from the mission down the street
      Sang amasing grace, and nobody cried
      'cept some lady in black way off to the side
      
      We all left and she's standing there
      The black veil covering her silver hair
      And one-eyed john said her name was alice
      She used to be a whore in dallas
      
      Let him roll, boys let him roll
      I bet he's gone to dallas rest his soul
      Let him roll, boys let him roll
      He always thought that heaven
      Was just a dallas whore
      Let him roll, boys let him roll
