Featuring Johnny Cash‘s son – John Carter Cash.This song was the last song written by Roy Orbison. He wrote it at the beach in Malibu with his favorite guitar, the same nylon-string guitar with which he wrote “In Dreams” all those years before.
Co-written with his lifelong friend and co-writer Bill Dees. When Roy completed the song, he walked into the another room to be alone. Closed the door. Sat down on the bed. Said a prayer. And cried with joy and happiness at the song which he considered a gift from God.
It was written for the “Mystery Girl” album and recorded as a demo on a cassette tape which was misplaced for many years. Finally restored and included in the 2014 expanded re-release of “Mystery Girl Deluxe” as a bonus track.
Completed with love by his children who recorded this video at Johnny Cash’s cabin in the same fields they were raised and their brothers perished in a fire in 1968.
Born on this day, October 18, 1970 in Nashville, Tennessee to Roy & Barbara Orbison.
Happy Birthday to Roy Orbison Jr !!!
