A classic Western ballad, "Boot Hill" opens with Johnny Cash reciting the actual story of the gunfight at the O.K. Corral, and the subsequent murders of three gunmen by the illustrious "Doc" Holliday. Following this soliloquy, the song proper begins with a downcast two-step, waltz-like rhythm and string, minor chord melody. The lyrics over this capture the atmosphere in Tombstone today, and the stark, abandon ghost town feel, makes this a near-cinimatic piece. Some unnecessary female chorus vocals occasionally take the effect down, but in the end, Cash's fabulous baritone lead vocal tells the tale with a striking reality.
