Crowned Heads Jericho Hill Jack Brown



The Johnny Cash hit "Cocaine Blues."

The song, a toe-kicking tune Cash made famous during his performance at Folsom Prison in 1968, is the story of a criminal named Willy Lee, who gets off to a brisk start in the ballad by murdering his lady with a .44 after a shot of cocaine. He makes a break for the border, but fails to get away, and is captured by the authorities in Mexico before being brought to justice by a sheriff from Jericho Hill:

"Late in the hot joints takin' the pills/In walked the sheriff from Jericho Hill/He said Willy Lee your name is not Jack Brown/You're the dirty hack that shot your woman down."

The size names all harken back to songs on Cash's album At Folsom Prison. The smallest in the line, .44S, is 5 1/8 inches by 44 ring gauge and refers to the gun used by the protagonist, Willy Lee, which is the name of the biggest cigar in the line, a 6-inch-long, 54-ring-gauge smoke. The LBV (6 1/2 by 46) and OBS (4 3/4 by 52) refer to different songs on the album.
