SAN QUENTIN

For anyone who knows what it feels like to be in the slammer, then you can relate to this song by Johnny Cash. After a couple of stints behind bars for minor issues myself, I can honestly say, locked up is no place you wanna be… not even for a day or two! Attached is a song I recorded that Johnny Cash wrote and performed at the prison of San Quentin and also at Folsom. I do my own rendition on it and I hope it captures some of the angst  and urgency of the original. Please click here to hear me Performimg San Quentin by Johnny Cash. I have written a couple prison related songs myself “Thrift Town” & “99 Years”. A currently released prison tune “Thrift Town” by my alt. country band The Nob Hill Billys can found at Spotify.com, Thanks!
