Here is Johnny Cash’s version of the tragic Springsteen epic “Highway Patrolman”. I first heard this version when I got the Johnny Cash box set called “Love, God, Murder” years ago. I grew up listening to Cash so I knew Johnny’s cover way before I became a Springsteen fan. I discovered Bruce’s “Nebraska” album when I was a Junior in High School and was shocked to find the title of track 5 was “Highway Patrolman”. I loved Bruce Springsteen’s music before I was even familiar with Bruce himself.
originally this song can be found on Johnny Cash’s album Johnny 99 - hmm? ;) -
