Johnny Cash is the original gangster rapper.

I've said it before and heard another song that I want to remix with Johhny rapping over some dope beats. I heard it on the the XM,they should want to be the official satellite radio of me, maybe another swag attempt is in the offing on the way, and thought it needed to be added to the list. Imagine thees lyrics over a good hip hop beat:

Hey, get rhythm when you get the blues
C'mon get rhythm when you get the blues
Get a rock 'n' roll feelin' in your bones
Get taps on your toes and get gone
Get rhythm when you get the blues

Little shoeshine boy never gets low down
But he's got the dirtiest job in town
Bendin' low at the peoples' feet
On the windy corner of the dirty street
Well, I asked him while he shined my shoes
How'd he keep from gettin' the blues
He grinned as he raised his little head
Popped a shoeshine rag and then he said

Hey, get rhythm when you get the blues
C'mon get rhythm when you get blues
Yes a jumpy rhythm makes you feel so fine
It'll shake all the trouble from your worried mind
Get rhythm when you get the blues
Get rhythm when you get the blues
C'mon, get rhythm when you get the blues
Get a rock 'n' roll feelin' in your bones
Get taps on your toes and get gone
Get rhythm when you get the blues

Well, I sat down to listen to the shoeshine boy
And I thought I was gonna jump for joy
Slapped on the shoe polish left and right
He took a shoeshine rag and he held it tight
He stopped once to wipe the sweat away
I said you're a mighty little boy to be-a workin' that way
He said I like it with a big wide grin
Kept on a poppin' and he said again

Get rhythm when you get the get the blues
C'mon get rhythm, get rhythm when you get the blues
It only cost a dime, just a nickel or two it does a million dollars worth of good for you
Get rhythm when you get the blues
