Forrest Likes Johnny Cash songs??
Does anyone see the resemblance of Forrest's Poem TTOTC to Johnny Cash's "I walk The Line"



"I Walk The Line"



I keep a close watch on this heart of mine

I keep my eyes wide open all the time

I keep the ends out for the tie that binds

Because you're mine, I walk the line



I find it very, very easy to be true

I find myself alone when each day is through

Yes, I'll admit that I'm a fool for you

Because you're mine, I walk the line



As sure as night is dark and day is light

I keep you on my mind both day and night

And happiness I've known proves that it's right

Because you're mine, I walk the line



You've got a way to keep me on your side

You give me cause for love that I can't hide

For you I know I'd even try to turn the tide

Because you're mine, I walk the line



I keep a close watch on this heart of mine

I keep my eyes wide open all the time

I keep the ends out for the tie that binds

Because you're mine, I walk the line





And here is Forrest's

I think this is a direct influence on the poetry and the theme of the Chase Poem

The rhyming structure is completely different. The metre is different. The only thing they two pieces seem to have in commen is the use of quatrain stanzas and beginning one line with as.

I've Been Everywhere is one of my all-time favorites. I've been most of the places in that song.
