Walk the Line – Johnny Cash / Joaquin Phoenix

The 2005 film “Walk the Line“, about the life and career of country music legend Johnny Cash and his relationship with his wife and fellow country music star June Carter, was a box office hit and won critical acclaim. Joaquin Phoenix (as Johnny Cash) and Reese Witherspoon (as June Carter) bring to life the story of musical legend Johnny Cash and the love of his life in “Walk the Line”, which was written and directed by James Mangold. Unlike many other biopics about musicians, Joaquin Phoenix and Reese Witherspoon did their own singing in the film and on the soundtrack, so not only did they win over critics for their portrayals of Johnny Cash and June Carter Cash, they also impressed audiences with their singing ability. I like this version more than the original. Joaquin Phoenix is an artist !!!

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
