"Seven Year Ache" (1981)
This song began as a long poem, three or four pages long, and I distilled it down into the song it became. I wrote it when Rickie Lee Jones first album was out, and it was really influential for me. I was thinking that I didn't know any country songs about being on the streets, or street life, and I wanted to write one. This was my attempt.
"On The Inside" (1990)
This is the first track on my album "Interiors." The whole album was about the difference between what is going on inside, and what you show the world on the outside.
"Rules of Travel" (2003)
I wrote the chorus to this YEARS before the whole song was finished. It became the title song of the album. I still think it is one of the best choruses I've written.
"Dreams Are Not My Home" (2006)
I was in Cambridge, England, playing at the Folk Festival, and my daughter and I climbed to the top of an ancient church, and I looked out over the River Cam and a picture unfolded in my mind, of the river rising, and Chelsea and I flying away. All the images in the song are dream-like, and the chorus is a longing to break free of the dreams.
"House on The Lake" (1980)
John Leventhal and I wrote this song, and it's full of detail about the home my dad and stepmother lived in. It's from the album 'Black Cadillac'. Many of those songs are about loss, but this one is also about what remains-- the love and memories.
"The Way We Make A Broken Heart" (1987)
This song is written by the great John Hiatt, one of my favorite songwriters. It was a big hit for me on the country charts in the 90's. It was an innovative record and just such a beautiful song.
"Like Fugitives" (2006)
This was the last song I wrote for my album "Black Cadillac," shortly after my mother died. I was angry and sad, and I didn't pull any punches, lyrically.
"Black Cadillac" (2006)
This was the first song I wrote for my album "Black Cadillac." It was like a 'postcard from the future'. Everyone started dying after I wrote this.
"She's Got You" (1986)
This song was written by the great songwriter Hank Cochran, and it was made famous by Patsy Cline. I had to get Patsy's voice out of my head to even approach singing this! I finally just asked her to help me. It seemed to work.
When I hear the words, "the man in black", I conjure an image of a tough, rugged singer Johnny Cash whose words touched the soul of the working man. Read morePublished 3 months ago by Dr. Wilson Trivino
I ripped through this fascinating little memoir in just a couple of sittings. Often when I read a memoir I really enjoy, I'll finish it wishing there were more. Not this one. Read morePublished 4 months ago by Timothy J. Bazzett
Very personal reflection of someone I had admired for many years as a singer/songwriter but Cash is a gifted writer as well. Read morePublished 5 months ago by Robert Leighton
I'm not a rabid fan of the Cash/Carter family's music, but I'm always interested in reading about fascinating people. Rosanne Cash and her family certainly fit into that category. Read morePublished 6 months ago by The Young Georgian
Excellent memoir, primarily because of Ms. Cash's obvious respect for language, but also because it does not rely on chronology. Read morePublished 6 months ago by J. Corbin
Rosanne Cash writes with heart and reason. She has led/is leading a truly interesting life and has the capacity to make sense of it and tell her story. Read morePublished 7 months ago by Emmadelle
Maybe it's just me, but I got as far as page 39 and gave up. The sentences were SO long and drawn out, it drove me nuts. Read morePublished 8 months ago by MaggieMae
A great gift and a cool way to support a gifted musician and artist. Everybody wins with this little bookPublished 10 months ago by Charlene Comstock-Galagan
For me, Composed, was an odd sort of book. I should say at the outset that I knew very little about Roseanne or Johnny Cash, beyond watching Walk the Line (a film Roseanne Cash... Read morePublished 11 months ago by Fiona Leonard
