"I walk the line" fu scritta da Johnny Cash nel 1956 e fu il suo primo numero uno. La canzone da' il titolo anche al film biografico del 2005 interpretato da Joaquin Phoenix nel ruolo di Cash e Reese Whiterspoon in quello di June Carter, seconda moglie di Cash.
come spesso nel caso di Johnny Cash, il testo racconta storie piu' interessanti della melodia. Quella che all'apparenza sembra una banale canzone d'amore nasconde in realta' il difficile tentativo del cantante di uscire dai problemi di alcool e droga che per molti anni segnarono la sua vita quotidiana.

Johnny Cash wrote "I walk the line" in 1956 and scored his first number one hit with this song.
"I walk the line" is also the title of the 2005 biographical movie interpreted by Joaquin Phoenix and Reese Witherspoon (who also won the Oscar that year as Best Actress for her role as June Carter, Cash's second wife).
As often with Johnny Cash, his lyrics are more interesting and articulated than the music.
what seems a plain love song is actually more about the struggle of a man whose drug and alcohol addiction kept him on a very thin line between life and death for many years.


I WALK THE LINE (1956)

I keep a close watch on this heart of mine
I keep my eyes wide open all the time
I keep the ends out for the tie that binds
Because you're mine, I walk the line

I find it very, very easy to be true
I find myself alone when each day is through
Yes, I'll admit that I'm a fool for you
Because you're mine, I walk the line

As sure as night is dark and day is light
I keep you on my mind both day and night
And happiness I've known proves that it's right
Because you're mine, I walk the line

You've got a way to keep me on your side
You give me cause for love that I can't hide
For you I know I'd even try to turn the tide
Because you're mine, I walk the line

I keep a close watch on this heart of mine
I keep my eyes wide open all the time
I keep the ends out for the tie that binds
Because you're mine, I walk the line
