It Ain’t Me, Babe – Joaquin Phoenix and Reese Witherspoon

walktheline_222505

Originally this was a Bob Dylan song, and don’t get me wrong, his version is amazing!

Johnny Cash and June Carter’s cover was also incredible!

However, the first version I ever heard was Joaquin Phoenix and Reese Witherspoon’s cover in the Johnny Cash biopic Walk The Line. I just fell in love with that song.

Their covers keeps the essence of that era, but modernises the sound – it’s like a the young Johnny Cash is back to life, but a modern version.

It has great harmonies and guitar riffs with a non-cheesy country sound.

…I’m not the one you want, babe
I’m not the one you need
You say you’re lookin’ for someone
Who’s never weak but always strong
To protect you and defend you
Whether you are right or wrong

But it ain’t me babe…

WARNING: You will feel obliged to sing in a strong southern accent.

Very well sung and covered.

Jodie.
