The Rare Moment Johnny Cash Joins George Jones for Insane ‘White Lightning’ Duet


We mean the word insane in a very good way and today, Duet Wednesdays feature a very much alive Johnny Cash and George Jones like the good buddies they are singing George Jones first number one hit, ‘White Lightning.’

White Lightning, George Jones ft Johnny Cash

Also known as ‘The Big Bopper’ song, ‘White Lightning’ is one of those George Jones single that mark the people’s mind. However, it did have a sort of dark tale when Jones revealed on his diary, ‘I Lived to Tell it All’ that he was intoxicated and had 80 takes before the track was completed.

Flash forward to 1970, When George Jones was a guest on ‘The Johnny Cash’ show and maybe the time when they are still swimming in the ocean of proving whether they have a shot as country legend. We now look back to what has become an iconic moment when The Man in Black sings with an all-blue suited George Jones.

Watch this rare moment here:


“White Lightning” Lyrics

Well in North Carolina way back in the hills me and my old pappy and he had him a still
He brewed white lightnin till the sun went down
Then he’d fill up a jug and he’d pass it around
Mighty mighty pleasin my pappy’s corn squeezin (whew white lightnin)
Well the G men T men revenoers too searchin for the place where he made his brew
They were lookin tryin’ to book him but my pappy kept on cookin
(Whew white lightnin)

Well I asked my old pappy why he called his brew
White lightnin stead of mountain dew
I took a little sip and right away I knew
And my eyes bugged out and my face turned blue
Light has started flashin thunder started krashin (whew white lightnin)
Well the G men T men…

Well a city slicker came and he said I’m tough
I think I want to taste that powerful stuff
He took one slug and he drank it right down I heard him moanin’ as he hit the ground
Mighty mighty pleasin you’r pappy’s corn squeezin (whew white lightnin)
Well the G men T men.

“She Thinks I Still Care” Lyrics

(She thinks I still care)

Just because I ask a friend about her
Just because I spoke her name somewhere
Just because I rang her number by mistake today
She thinks I still care

Just because I haunt the same old places
Where the memory of her lingers everywhere
Just because I’m not the happy guy I used to be
She thinks I still care

But if she’s happy thinking I still need her
Then let that silly notion bring her cheer
Oh, how could she ever be so foolish?
Oh, where would she get such an idea?

Just because I ask a friend about her
Just because I spoke her name somewhere
Just because I saw her, then went all to pieces
She thinks I still care

She thinks I still care…
