Song Lyrics

On a hill far away stood an old rugged cross the emblem of suffering and shame

And I love that old cross where the dearest and best

For a word of lost sinners was slain

So I`ll cherish the old rugged cross till my trophies at last I lay down

I will cling to the old rugged cross and exchange it some day for a crown

To the old rugged cross I will ever be true it`s shame and reproach gladly bear

Then he`ll call me some day to my home far away where his glory forever I`ll share

So I`ll cherish...

And exchange it some day for a crown

J.R. "Johnny" Cash (February 26, 1932 – September 12, 2003) was an American singer-songwriter, actor, and author, widely considered one of the most influential musicians of the 20th century. Although primarily remembered as a country music icon, his genre-spanning songs and sound embraced rock and roll, rockabilly, blues, folk and gospel. This crossover appeal won Cash the rare honor of multiple inductions in the Country Music, Rock and Roll and Gospel Music Halls of Fame.
