61Sam Hall
62The Mercy Seat

My favourite song of Johnny Cash, and one of the most beautiful and intense outros in piano I've ever hearded

63Song of the Patriot
64For the Good Times

Another cover of a Kristofferson original - Billyv

Makes me so emotional

65The Battle of New Orleans
66The Rebel-Johnny Yuma
67Time's a Wastin
68Country Trash
69Streets of LaredoV1 Comment
72Luther Played the Boogie

My IPod of hundreds of Johnny Cash Songs places this at number 1 on my top 25 list. There are So many excellent songs, that it is hard to choose, especially for those who do not know some of Cash's lesser popular songs. I do not place this above songs such as Sunday Morning Coming Down, Big River, etc. , but it ought to be higher up this list. Give it a listen.

73Girl from the North Country

One of my favorite Dylan songs. Johnny truly gave it justice. - Billyv


This is such a good song. Although it is a religious song, it is just a good song to listen to. Even those who do not like religious songs should enjoy it. It should rank in the top 25.

75Straight A's In Love

The richness in Johnny's voice in this early work is exceptional. Even sounds a little like Elvis here. Johnny sounds fantastic.

77I'm Movin' On
78Nine Pound Hammer
79Peace In the Valley

A lovely relaxing song to listen to.

80I'd Still Be There
