I Still Miss Someone

the pressley girls playing music in a field

Johnny Cash and his nephew Roy Cash, Jr. wrote “I Still Miss Someone.” Johnny first recorded the song in 1958 as the b-side to the hit “Don’t Take Your Guns to Town.”

Cash recorded “I Still Miss Someone” on several albums. Lots of other folks recorded the song too, including: The Statler Brothers, Flatt and Scruggs, and Emmylou Harris.

The Pressley Girls learned the song from a Flat and Scruggs cd I got them a few years back for Christmas.

The girls ain’t Johnny Cash, but I think they do a great job on the old song.

    The new Ken Burns’ production on Country Music has Johnny’s daughter, Roseanne, singing, “I Still Miss Someone”.

    Well done on a great song. Looks like she was playing “paps” Taylor guitar. If it is that’s an great honor to him. Don’t have a computer. Just my phone so the sound is not that good but have a playlist of about 300 of your songs. Keep up the good work.

    Tipper,
    Me and Harold sung at churches all around us when we were small. One time at Hewitt’s, just before you get to the entrance of the Quarry, Harley Grant was the Sunday School Superintendent at the time and they were running a Revival. After some singers had their turn, the house was packed and ole Harley stood up and ask “are the Roper Boys in the house?” Well, me and Harold got up on the stage her and let her fly. We sang “My Lord Keeps a Record and I Have but one
    Goal.” This brought the house down, we got a Standing Ovation and it made us feel good. We were only about 6 or 7 and 9 or 10 back then, but we had Feelings, and the Applause was appreciated.

    Another time we were at Alarka and the roads were crooked, coming thru the Gorge. Me and Mama had got into it over something and I raised up and said “That’s OK but the next time I’ll not Puke with you,” daddy just hollered. …Ken

    Sweet. I do still miss several someones though they were not sweethearts. One of the things we all share in the fellowship of the human condition.

    Hope all you all have a blessed Sunday.

    I remember when this song came out. I was a big Cash fan in ’58(still am) and it is still one of my favorite Cash songs. Good job…
