I just found this sweet mash-up of Lord of the Rings and The Ring of Fire song by Johnny Cash. It makes for a really strange Johnny Cash music video. Somehow I doubt this is what Johnny Cash envisioned when he wrote the song.

I wonder what would have happened if Johnny Cash had ever met some Hobbits!? He would have probably beat the living shit out of them for sneaking up on him or something. I heard that the popular belief is that the song is about hemorrhoids. Crazy.


  1. I never get tired of that footage from LOTR: RotK. Great mash-up. I would love to see “Destination Unknown” mashed with the march through the Dead Marshes.

  2. This song was written by his wife, June Carter Cash…I thought this song was about hell and eternal damnation because of her affair with Cash while she was still married to another man.

  3. It was a bad idea to write such a primitive song.
