The legendary country singer, Johnny Cash was addicted to drugs in the 1960s and went to jail several times. Cash says he overcame his addiction by renewing his faith. He tells how a shoeshine man taught him a lesson for living back in 1956 but, unfortunately, it took several more years for him to really understand the lesson.

"I was expecting a fast, snappy job like the young folks do," Cash said, "and he was going about his job real slow. I said to him, ‘You don't seem to be doing too much snapping.'

"That shoeshine man looked up at me sort of sideways and said, ‘That's the problem with the world these days— there's too much snapping and not enough shining.'"
