For the Good Times Lyrics Johnny Cash


For the Good Times Lyrics Johnny Cash

It's no surprise that Johnny Cash chose to cover a song by Kris Kristopherson as they were long time buddies throughout their careers. Johnny and Kris famously teamed up with Willie Nelson and Waylon Jennings to form the successfull  country group, The Highway Men. For the Good Times was featured on Cash's final American Recordings album, American IV: Aint no Grave. The lyrics are a reflection of literally the good times that have gone by in one's life.

For the Good Times Lyics:


Don't look so sad, I know it's over.


But life goes on, and this old world will keep on turning.

Let's just be glad we had some time to spend together.

There's no need to watch the bridges that we're burning.



Lay your head upon my pillow.

Hold your warm and tender body close to mine.

Hear the whisper of the raindrops,

Blowin' soft against the window,

And make believe you love me one more time,

For the good times.



I'll get along; you'll find another,

And I'll be here if you should find you ever need me.

Don't say a word about tommorrow or forever,

There'll be time enough for sadness when you leave me.



Lay your head upon my pillow.

Hold your warm and tender body close to mine.

Hear the whisper of the raindrops,

Blowin' soft against the window,

And make believe you love me one more time,

For the good times.
