"Boom Chicka Boom" is an album by American country music icon Johnny Cash, released in 1990 (see 1990 in music) on Mercury Records. The title refers to the sound that Cash's backing band, the Tennessee Three were said to produce. It includes a cover of Harry Chapin's "Cat's in the Cradle", and a song written by Elvis Costello for Cash, "Hidden Shame." "Don't Go Near the Water" had previously been recorded for "Ragged Old Flag", and discusses the issue of pollution of the environment. In 2003, Mercury released "Boom Chicka Boom" paired with "Johnny Cash is Coming to Town" on a single compact disc, though "Veteran's Day" was left off. "Farmer's Almanac" and "Cat's in the Cradle" were released as singles, but failed to chart; the album itself, however, reached No. 48 on the country charts.
