Does the road seem all long and heavy your load
Just take it to Christ your sins all confess
On the Jericho Road your heart He will bless

In an interview with a Dutch magazine Cash says he can hear himself on the CD, but that he is singing higher than usual, because Carl Perkins sang low, because Carl's voice was rough of singing much for recording. The Million Dollar Quartet recordings were done during an Carl Perkins recording on which an unknown Jerry Lee Lewis participated. But I think Cash left early because Elvis is saying here "I would take young Johnny Cash to do this". All these guys were raised hearing gospel music. You can really hear that here.

Sam Phillips should've had Elvis, Jerry Lee, Johnny and Carl do a proper studio album. He could've marketed and sold it to their respective record labels and made a fortune.

An album I rarely play now but one that I really like. This is a great mid tempo gospel number with Jerry Lee Lewis I think with the prominent vocal ( from memory).

A good gospel tune, I think Jerry Lee Lewis doing the harmony.
