“In 1959 I took one guitar lesson, learned three chords and Mule Skinner Blues. I wrote “Tribute To Johnny Cash” using every Johnny Cash song I could think of.
I wrote “Dear John” for Johnny Cash and waited 15 years for him to record it. I don’t know if he ever will, but here it is.
Both “Tribute” and “Dear John” were produced by Randy Hart and the late Kin Vassy.” — Gary Mule Deer, 1997
