Johnny Cash's To-Do List: Kissing, Worrying, and Visiting Mama

by Yasha Wallin

May 3, 2013

It's not that often that you see "worry" on someone's to-do list. Usually that's more a reflex than a task. But for one of America's most prolific musicians, Johnny Cash, that ranked number eight on his to-do list for the day. This was followed by "Go See Momma," which is pretty adorable coming from a bad boy with  a history of alcohol and drug abuse. In his revered Folsom Prison Blues he references Mama as well: "When I was just a baby my mama told me son, always be a good boy, don't ever play with guns."
