Committed To Parkview
Johnny Cash

There's a man across the hall who sits starin' at the floor
And he thinks he's Hank Williams hear his singin' through the door
There's a girl in 2-0-2 who stops by to visit me
And she talks about her songs and the star that she should be
There's a lot of real fine talent stayin' in or passin' through
And for one thing or another they're committed to parkview
There's a girl in 2-0-7 comin' down on Thorozene
And a superstar exdrummer tryin' to pick benzedrine
There's a real fine country singer who has tried and tried and tried
They just brought him in this morning an attempted suicide
There are those who never made it those who did and now are through
Some came of their own good choosin' some committed to parkview

There's a girl who cries above me loud enough to wake the dead
They don't know what she has taken that has scrambled up her head
There's a boy just down below me who's the son of some well known
He was brought in by his mother cause his daddy's always gone
There's a bum from down on Broadway and a few quite well-to-do
Who have withdrawn from the rat race and committed to parkview
They wake me about 6:30 just before the morning meal
While they're takin' my blood pressure they ask me how I feel
And I always say fantastic there ain't nothing wrong with me
And then they give me my injection and I go right back to sleep
And my days're kinda foggy and my nights're dreamy too
For they're taking good care of me while committed to parkview
