"I Walk the Line" is a cover of a Johnny Cash song from 1956 originally on the album "Johnny Cash with His Hot and Blue Guitar!" The song was covered by Paramore once live in Cat's Music, Cool Springs, Tennessee.

Background[]

I Walk the Line originally debuted on Johnny Cash's first studio album and became one of his most popular songs. The song is about staying loyal to your partner. The song would become the namesake for the biopic about Johnny Cash's life. Paramore most likely covered the song due to Hayley Williams being a fan of Johnny Cash's work.

Lyrics[]

I keep a close watch on this heart of mine
I keep my eyes wide open all the time
I keep the ends out for the tie that binds
Because you're mine, I walk the line

I find it very, very easy to be true
I find myself alone when each day is through
Yes, I'll admit that I'm a fool for you
Because you're mine, I walk the line

As sure as night is dark and day is light
I keep you on my mind both day and night
And happiness I've known proves that it's right
Because you're mine, I walk the line

You've got a way to keep me on your side
You give me cause for love that I can't hide
For you I know I'd even try to turn the tide
Because you're mine, I walk the line

I keep a close watch on this heart of mine
I keep my eyes wide open all the time
I keep the ends out for the tie that binds
Because you're mine, I walk the line
