It was released in 2003 on the Dualtone record label, four months after his death and just a few days before the death of Johnny Cash, who provides backing vocals, making this the final release of his life. The album was produced by her son, John Carter Cash. The album's opening track, “Keep on the Sunny Side,” was a Carter family anthem that June Carter Cash had previously recorded twice with Johnny Cash: for the 1964 Carter Family album of the same title, and for the album. Johnny Cash from 1974 The Junkie. The album was released on September 9, 2003, and reached # 33 on the U.S. Top Country Albums charts, and on September 27 reached # 2 on the US Bluegrass Albums charts.     About the song:   “Wildwood Flower” is a variant of the song “I'll Twine 'Mid the Ringlets” published in 1860 by composer Joseph Philbrick Webster, who wrote the music, with lyrics attributed to Maud Irving. Other versions of the song have evolved, such as “The Pale Amaranthus” (collected in Kentucky and North Carolina, reported in 1911), “Raven Black Hair” and “The Pale Wildwood Flower” (collected between 1915 and 1919) and “The Wild Wood Flower Frail ".   A.P. Carter recorded “Wildwood Flower” as his own after the recording of The Carter Family in 1928 (copyrighted on October 20, 1935), but the lyrics are almost identical to “I'll Twine 'Mid the Ringlets”. He converted it from a parlor song to a folk performance, and while Carter arguably does not guarantee it, he assigns adaptation status to Carter, so there is a separate grouping for “Wildwood Flower”.

mbatllegarriga@gmail.com June Carter Cash - Wildwood Flower  Lyrics   I will twine mid my ringlets of raven black hair The lilies so pale and the roses so fair And the myrtle so bright with an emerald hue The pale amaryllis and violets so blue I will dance I will sing and my laugh will be gay I'll cease this wild weeping drive sorrow away Tho my heart is now breaking, he'll never know His name made me tremble, my pale cheeks to glow   He told me he loved me and promised to love Through ill and misfortunes all others above Now another has won him, oh misery to tell He left me in silence no word of farewell He taught me to love him, he called me his flower That blossomed for him all the brighter each hour But I awoke from my dreaming, my idol was clay My visions of love have all faded away   I'll think of him never, I'll be wildly gay I'll charm every heart and the crowd I will sway I'll live yet to see him regret the dark hour He won and neglected the frail wildwood flower

mbatllegarriga@gmail.com Garth Brooks - That Summer  Lyrics   [Verse 1] I went to work for her that summer A teenage kid so far from home She was a lonely widow woman Hell-bent to make it on her own We were a thousand miles from nowhere Wheat fields as far as I could see Both needing somethin' from each other Not knowin' yet what that might be   [Verse 2] 'Til she came to me one evenin' Hot cup of coffee and a smile In a dress that I was certain She hadn't worn in quite a while There was a difference in her laughter There was a softness in her eyes And on the air there was a hunger Even a boy could recognize   [Chorus] She had a need to feel the thunder To chase the lightnin' from the sky To watch a storm with all its wonder Ragin' in her lover's eyes She had to ride the heat of passion Like a comet burnin' bright Rushin' headlong in the wind, out where only dreams have been Burnin' both ends of the night [Verse 3] That summer wind was all around me Nothin' between us but the night And when I told her that I'd never She softly whispered that's alright And then I watched her hands of leather Turn to velvet in a touch There's never been another summer When I have ever learned so much [Chorus] We had a need to feel the thunder To chase the lightnin' from the sky To watch a storm with all its wonder Ragin' in each others eyes We had to ride the heat of passion Like a comet burnin' bright Rushin' headlong in the wind, out where only dreams have been Burnin' both ends of the night   [Verse 3] I often think about that summer The sweat, the moonlight and the lace And I have rarely held another When I haven't seen her face And every time I pass a wheat field And watch it dancin' with the wind Although I know it isn't real, I just can't help but feel Her hungry arms again [Chorus] She had a need to feel the thunder To chase the lightnin' from the sky To watch a storm with all its wonder Ragin' in her lover's eyes She had to ride the heat of passion Like a comet burnin' bright Rushin' headlong in the wind, out where only dreams have been Burnin' both ends of the night   [Outro] Rushin' headlong in the wind, out where only dreams have been Burnin' both ends of the night
