Johnny Cash Describes Oil Boom

Johnny Cash can give you an overview of the oil boom and its affects on our life today.

Check out his performance of “Ride This Train”, but remember that it was recorded in 1970, so when he says it was 120 years ago, it has actually been 160 years since Drake struck oil.
