Haunting Lyrics From One Of Chris Cornell’s Final Recorded Songs Surfaces


JeffGarden has shared the lyrics to late Soundgarden frontman Chris Cornell’s recording of “You Never Knew My Mind.” Cornell created the song around unreleased Jonny Cash lyrics for a new album set for release in April.

Cornell will appear on a new album that sets the poems of Johnny Cash to music, Johnny Cash: Forever Words. Cash’s son John Carter Cash helped put together the album.

John Carter Cash, who co-produced the album, said in a statement, “I picked the artists who are most connected with my father, who had a personal story that was connected with Dad. It became an exciting endeavor to go through these works, to put them together and present them to different people who could finish them in a way that I believed that Dad would have wanted.”

The album will be released on April 6th. See the tracklisting watch a trailer featuring unseen footage of Chris Cornell below the lyrics.

    ‘I never knew your mind / You never knew my mind’- Yes, I think those were lyrics that Chris could definitely relate to.

    Misleading title makes it appear as though CC wrote the lyrics.

      the point of the author is to mislead and create narratives that aren’t there. he does this often.

  • suz

    uh, these are the lyrics of johnny cash — that’s what’s haunting. they have nothing to do w/mr. cornell whatsoever.
