“Home of the Blues” is a Johnny Cash song about his unhappy childhood. It was recorded over a year after “I Walk the Line” on July 1, 1957 in Memphis, Tennessee. The song was written by Johnny Cash, and Douglas L. McAlphin and Glenn Douglas Tubb and, like much of Cash’s output, was produced by Jack Clement. “Home of the Blues” was redone by Joaquin Phoenix as a part of the 2005 film, Walk the Line. Partial ownership of the song is held by Florida businessman John Palumbo. Read on...

Song lines: ♪ Just around the corner there's heartaches ... You'll find me at the home of the blues ... If you can wade in through the teardrop
