Una delle canzoni più amate di sempre dai fan di Johnny Cash, incisa nel 1956 e ispiratrice dell’omonimo recente film con Joaquin Phoenix. Curiosità: Johnny Cash concepì la progressione degli accordi di I walk the line accidentalmente, ascoltando per sbaglio al contrario il nastro di un’altra canzone. Così, venne da lui suonata inizialmente come una lenta ballata e solo in seguito con una modesta accelerazione.

Riportiamo il testo, gli accordi per chitarra e la tablatura di I walk the line
