Christmas With You

Year: 1972

Written By: Johnny Cash

He may well have been the man in black but boy did he like the season with the most white stuff. So much so that Johnny Cash went on to record dozens of Christmas songs throughout his career. Many were of the reminising kind, back to a time when there was little to warm the festive heart except family togetherness (the best kind and something he consistently pined for). Cash wrote 'Christmas With You' for the album he recorded with his daughters and second wife June Carter called 'The Johnny Cash Family Christmas' and it was an altogether simple affair. The pair share singing duties against a backdrop of barely conceived guitar lines. It's country music with the engine turned off but it still sounds affecting thanks to the participants genuine performances.

 

Christmas With You Lyrics

It's so nice to spend Christmas with you
The times that I've seen Christmas come and go are now two score
I wish you a merry Christmas and I wish you a many more
It's good to see the children laugh with joy the way they do
And it's nice to spend Christmas with you
That old fashioned Christmas is a sweet memory
Except for all the Christmasses that you weren't there with me
But now I really feel the spirit cause I love you like I do
And it's nice to spend Christmas with you

I remember Christmas when I little could afford
And I try to remember it's the birthday of our Lord
Well I'll not forget to thank him for his blessing's on me too
And that I can spend Christmas with you
That old fashioned Christmas...
It's so nice to spend Christmas with you
