“We love Australian folk songs!” Fallon exclaimed.

“It's by, uh, Johnny Cash,” Crowe joked.

He then went on to wow the crowd with his impressive set of pipes.

Fallon gleefully joined in on harmonica, with The Roots enthusiastically backing him up.

The man in black would be proud.

    All right Crowe! His roles in “Gladiator” and “Master and Commander” got my attention. I'll pass on “Noah” as all I think of is Bill Cosby's take decades ago with “cubits” and the critters up the gangplank…”Rabbits and rats…only two Noah, only two”, etc. And from God: “Noah, if you screw up, how long can you tread water?”
