Well, at least we know two themes, Furniture and Carnival, are still out there... so either Season 4 is coming or, worst case scenario, there will be two "lost" episodes of TTRH for a Bootleg Series type release several decades from now! :shock:

StewArt: You are right that Johnny Cash's "Mean Eyed Cat" was released in 1960, but it was actually recorded in 1955. A little trivia on the song: After Cash recorded "Mean Eyed Cat" he didn't want it to released, because he felt the lyrics were incomplete, but of course Sam Phillips went an released it anyway a couple of years after Cash had left Sun Records. Later Cash wrote a proper ending for the song and finally recorded this complete version with Marty Stuart and Tom Petty & The Heartbreaker for his 1996 album "Unchained". This version doesn't quite hold up to the original Sun recording, but the closing verse is pretty nice:

Well, I got off the train somewhere in Arkansas
And I worked up the guts to call my Mother-In-Law
She said, "I'll tell you where she is, if you act right."
" She's workin' four to twelve at Trucker's World tonight."

When I walked in she saw me, and she took off her apron
And she grabbed her goin' home hat
She bought a ticket with her tips
And now we're curled up on the sofa,
me and her and that mean eyed cat

Also, StewArt: Are you sure Rex Griffin's "You Got to Go to Work" is from 1957? I would have guessed 1930s or 40s, but I'm not positive...
