Johnny Cash sings "The Junkie's Prayer"

Cash pulls no punches with this song--titled "The Junkie's Prayer,"
written by Lew Dewitt of the Statler Brothers, about a subject Cash was
all too familiar with himself--and the performance is unflinching and
straight from the heart. From January 6, 1971. Thanks to gf530 for
getting me the correct intel on this tune, and to Michael Lamont for
suggesting edits in my remarks about the clip.
