In a lesser-known side of his career, late country legend Johnny Cash has several credits as an actor, and once he lent his famous voice to the character Kid Cole to send a beautiful Thanksgiving message.

“The Man in Black” gave life to the recurring character in four occasions from 1993 to 1997 in the western drama series “Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman” alongside his real wife June Carter, who also played his wife in the show.

21 years ago, for the Thanksgiving episode of the series, Cash, as Cole, sang a beautiful song of love and thankfulness written by the artist himself, showing that despite his up and downs he was conscious of his blessings.

After all this years, Cash’s “Thanksgiving Song” is more than ever a touching reminder of how important is to be thankful and not to take our lives and our loved ones for granted. Read more on our Twitter account @amomama_usa

When Thanksgiving and Christmas, as it has happened to other holidays, seem to be just about gluttony and consumerism, this song serves as a wake-up call to all of us to treasure what really matters.

Seeing a new generation embracing Cash’s song and bringing them back to life we don’t have to worry about this great artist’s legacy being forgotten any time soon.

In a musical segment preceded by the story of a poor man with no possibilities to share a proper Thanksgiving dinner, Cash sings about gratitude for the things we have instead of complaining about what we are missing.

“Some folks never seem to get happy/ Is it just because they’re so busy getting mad./ Never taking time to be thankful/ Or lend a helping hand to a fellow man,” the song goes.

“I just wanna say I thank you for the food I eat/ And I thank you, Lord, for the place I sleep/ And I thank you Lord, for the coat that keeps me warm./

Yes, and my feet that take me where I want to go/ And my eyes that see your sunset’s glow.”

The “Folsom Prison Blues” singer passed away on September 12, 2003, aged 71, but his music and life immortalized him as an American icon, forever remembered for the complexity of his character and his profound lyrics.

Seeing a new generation embracing Cash’s song and bringing them back to life we don’t have to worry about this great artist’s legacy being forgotten any time soon.
