There ain’t no grave can hold my body down…

Another from Johnny Cash:

That was “Ain’t No Grave.” A whole bunch of people created an art project for that song. Since I can’t find the video of the song that I had saved, it’s an opportunity to showcase that one.

Here’s another good one with a fan-made video I hadn’t seen before tonight, “God’s Gonna Cut You Down”:

Another, “One” (U2 cover):

Did I disappoint you? Or leave a bad taste in your mouth?

You act like you’ve never had love, and you want me to go without.

Well, it’s too late — tonight — to drag the past out into the light. We’re one, but we’re not the same. We get to carry each other, carry each other. One.

Have you come here for forgiveness? Have you come to raise the dead? Have you come here to play Jesus to the lepers in your head?

Did I ask too much? More than a lot? You gave me nothing, now it’s all I got. We’re one, but we’re not the same. When we hurt each other, and we’re doing it again.

You say love is a temple. Love’s a higher law.

Love is a temple. Love’s the higher law.

You ask me to enter, and then you make me crawl. And I can’t keep holding on to what you’ve got when all you’ve got is hurt. One love, one blood, one life — you’ve got to do what you should.

One life with each other. Sisters and brothers.

One life, but we’re not the same. We get to carry each other, carry each other. One.

One.

His music has a profound impact on me.

Don’t think I’ve ever heard this one by him before, “Solitary Man”:
