Johnny Cash Sings About a Flood (with help from Biff)

[19 August 2010]

By Steve Horowitz

Unfortunately, floods are back in the news. Over 20 million people in Pakistan have been impacted by the high water and more than 1,500 people have been reported dead. Here in America, recent flooding has caused a far less severe toll, but it has caused serious damage to places like Ames, Iowa. There is nothing fun or funny about floods, but keeping one’s spirits up in the face of disaster has merit. This clip of the late, great Johnny Cash singing (with help from Biff),a song about an historic flood, “Five Feet High and Rising”, on Sesame Street should keep us humming while thinking of what we can best do to help those in need.
