What's the best, or your fave Johnny Cash song?

I have been listening to some older Johnny Cash and have really appreciated some of the older work, my current fave has to be "Sunday Morning Coming Down."

You can feel the angst...
I have been listening to American V a lot lately. I get chills every time I hear Four Strong Winds and I'm Free from the Chain Gang Now.
Maybe it's because of the length of time listening to him, and I think he has always been pretty amazing, but,

his American Recordings series produced by Mr. Rubin are unbelievable. I love "Personal Jesus"

Great artist, his daughter Roseann can slay you also.

Have Fun.

Sunday Morning is a great song, I think he has been sadly overlooked for a long time with a cuge collection of very good songs, I have 10 or so albums and a couple CD's...this inspires me to spin some Cash so thanks for the idea!
The Mercy Seat from American III is one of my favs.
The live version of Folsom Prison Blues.

Hearing the prisoners chear after the lyrics "I shot a man in Reno just to watch him die" is chilling.
"In Your Mind" on the Dead Man Walking cd is great.
And I agree with Steelhead, Roseanne Cash is wonderful. "Interiors" is one of the most beautifully depressing cds I own.
Ditto on Four Strong Winds. I also like his version of Reznor's "Hurt."
"When The Man Comes Around"............gives me the frights
It doesnt happen often but I actually like J Cash's version of Trent's song better except it really breaks up at the end, maybe this was intended but I wish the levels were a but lower.
"The Folk Singer" (Bear Family) is my favorite. Deep and dark!
One piece at a time.

Well, I left Kentucky back in '49
An' went to Detroit workin' on a 'sembly line
The first year they had me puttin' wheels on cadillacs

Every day I'd watch them beauties roll by
And sometimes I'd hang my head and cry
'Cause I always wanted me one that was long and black.

One day I devised myself a plan
That should be the envy of most any man
I'd sneak it out of there in a lunchbox in my hand
Now gettin' caught meant gettin' fired
But I figured I'd have it all by the time I retired
I'd have me a car worth at least a hundred grand.

I'd get it one piece at a time
And it wouldn't cost me a dime
You'll know it's me when I come through your town
I'm gonna ride around in style
I'm gonna drive everybody wild
'Cause I'll have the only one there is a round.

So the very next day when I punched in
With my big lunchbox and with help from my friends
I left that day with a lunch box full of gears
Now, I never considered myself a thief
GM wouldn't miss just one little piece
Especially if I strung it out over several years.

The first day I got me a fuel pump
And the next day I got me an engine and a trunk
Then I got me a transmission and all of the chrome
The little things I could get in my big lunchbox
Like nuts, an' bolts, and all four shocks
But the big stuff we snuck out in my buddy's mobile home.

Now, up to now my plan went all right
'Til we tried to put it all together one night
And that's when we noticed that something was definitely wrong.

The transmission was a '53
And the motor turned out to be a '73
And when we tried to put in the bolts all the holes were gone.

So we drilled it out so that it would fit
And with a little bit of help with an A-daptor kit
We had that engine runnin' just like a song
Now the headlight' was another sight
We had two on the left and one on the right
But when we pulled out the switch all three of 'em come on.

The back end looked kinda funny too
But we put it together and when we got thru
Well, that's when we noticed that we only had one tail-fin
About that time my wife walked out
And I could see in her eyes that she had her doubts
But she opened the door and said "Honey, take me for a spin."

So we drove up town just to get the tags
And I headed her right on down main drag
I could hear everybody laughin' for blocks around
But up there at the court house they didn't laugh
'Cause to type it up it took the whole staff
And when they got through the title weighed sixty pounds.

I got it one piece at a time
And it didn't cost me a dime
You'll know it's me when I come through your town
I'm gonna ride around in style
I'm gonna drive everybody wild
'Cause I'll have the only one there is around.

(Spoken) Ugh! Yow, RED RYDER
This is the COTTON MOUTH

Huh, This is the COTTON MOUTH
And negatory on the cost of this mow-chine there RED RYDER
You might say I went right up to the factory
And picked it up, it's cheaper that way
Ugh!, what model is it?

I admit I'm a little twisted, but my personal favorite is "I Walk The Line".
Sunday morning coming down...I can relate....Kristofferson sure wrote some great songs, huh?
I still miss someone
im a drifter/pickin time
'Hurt', coz Its dirge.
I'm with Chadnliz, "Hurt" really does it for me. A haunting song, even moreso after seeing the video.
First heard Cash in the mid 60's when my best friends father used to play his records all the time. Became a big fan myself- agree with Steelhead, there is just something about "Personal Jesus"...and it has nothing to do with religion.
i really like his covers of tom waits "down there by the train" and danzig's "13"

of his own, rowboat is a great track, as is cocaine blues and sunday morning...

It Burns,Burns,Burns that Ring of Fire, and
Because You're Mine,I walk the Line
always hit the spot-true C&W all time classics.
