Why Me, Lord (With Johnny Cash)

Compilation album: Rare Genius – The Undiscovered Masters, Concord Records, 25 October 2010.

This duet track with Why Me, Lord was discovered in the Sony vaults; the Kristofferson song was produced by Billy Sherrill in Nashville in 1981 for a Johnny Cash CBS album - which never was released. Ray added some fantastic keyboard licks.
Hear this Johnny Cash version, or Kris Kristofferson's live version here (and more here). Also read this, about a version by Sara Jordan Powell that was produced by Ray and was released in 1982.
