Bob Dylan And Johnny Cash Sing ‘Girl From The North Country’

Two legendary artists joined forces for a low-key yet stunning display of their immense musical talent. 

Bob Dylan and Johnny Cash are iconic musicians responsible for creating some of the most widely heard and played songs ever. Both enjoyed decades-long successful careers, producing such hits as “Knocking on Heaven’s Door,” “Like a Rolling Stone,” “Ring of Fire” and “I Walk the Line.” Their unique sound defined generations. They also used their music to comment on some of the most pressing issues of the day. 

Back in May of 1969, those two artists combined their musical genius for a performance on ABC’s The Johnny Cash Show, according to a post on social media. The post adds that Bob’s appearance on the program came on the very first episode of The Johnny Cash Show. Not a bad way to kick off a new program.

In the video posted on Facebook, Bob and Johnny, both with guitars in hand, performed “Girl from the North Country.” In the short, 3-and-a-half-minute clip, Bob enters the frame and instantly is met with thunderous applause. He doesn’t acknowledge the warm reception but instead sits down and begins strumming on his instrument. 

Bob and Johnny give the audience a terrific duet. It's one that features two musical geniuses. It's a simple but excellent performance. Bob and Johnny’s performance is one that could easily be listened to repeatedly without ever growing tired of it. 

Johnny Cash and Bob Dylan are universally loved by music fans. While many adore Johnny’s writing and singing ability, feelings about Bob are much more polarized. Some aren’t the biggest fans of his voice, finding it lacking at times. However, not many can argue with his stellar songwriting abilities. Bob’s songs have been performed and recorded by other artists for decades. 

Johnny Cash and Bob Dylan will forever be giants in the musical world. 

Colossians 3:16 “Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord.”
