Journalist Gene Beley, who accompanied the Cashes to Folsom, describes starting the day with June Carter Cash exclaiming “this is a huckleberry picking morning,” the passage through the gates and seeing their first inmates, struck by their youth.  C.O. Jim Brown says Cash “worked the crowd,” including singing songs about prison life, and taking a drink from a prisoner’s tin cup during the show.  Merle Haggard, who was an inmate in California, said Cash identified with the men’s plight.  ”He understood somehow and the convicts knew it.”
