Top Ten Classic Country Songs


The Contenders: Page 3

41 The Fightin' Side of Me - Merle Haggard
42 Old Dogs, Children and Watermelon Wine - Tom T. Hall

The Storyteller. I really love his friendly, smoker's vocals on any of his songs, but this one in particular is special. - Britgirl

43 A Thousand Miles from Nowhere - Dwight Yoakam

I actually hadn't listened to any Country radio in awhile when I heard this on the trailer for a pretty good HBO movie "Red Rock West". I started listening to more of Dwight Yoakam and found him a guy more centered on Country's roots. - Ned964

44 Lyin' Eyes - The Eagles

Although this song and more by Eagles are classified as Country/Rock, it's twangy lead guitar, harmony vocals and steel guitar have always qualified it as Country to me. - Ned964

I wholeheartedly agree with your comment there. They bring a new type of country sound to their songs. This one by them is a particular favourite of mine. I could listen to it on a loop. It has such a free and relaxing aura about it. Great choice. - Britgirl

45 End of the World - Skeeter Davis
46 The Happiest Girl in the Whole U.S.A. - Donna Fargo

@Ned964 - Yes, I DO know this lovely song but forgot all about it since I haven't heard it for...ohh...ages! Thank you for adding! The happiest girl in the UK now has a wider smile :). - Britgirl

47 Blanket on the Ground - Billie Jo Spears
48 Rose of Cimarron - Poco

I's soft country rock and not strictly country but it is a classic. And since you added Lyin' Eyes, I thought I might just get away with this one... - Britgirl

A pleasure. And thank you. I'm fond of Robin Trower too. Great guitarist and blues-rock vocalist. You've added some really good ones too. It's nice to have the memories they bring come flooding back. - Britgirl

49 I Never Promised You a Rose Garden - Lynn Anderson
50 Walk on By - Leroy Van Dyke
51 Kiss an Angel Good Mornin' - Charley Pride

My Moms favorite song, and artist. I miss you Mom. - Ned964

It really is a lovely song. My mum loves it too. If what you mean by you miss your mum, that she is no longer with you, I'm so sorry to hear that and I feel for you. - Britgirl

52 Wings of a Dove - Ferlin Husky
53 Old Man from the Mountain - Merle Haggard
54 From a Jack to a King - Ned Miller

Great stuff - Ned964

55 Della and the Dealer - Hoyt Axton
56 I Walk the Line - Johnny Cash

Another Cash classic - Ned964

57 Rose Garden - Lynn Anderson

It's on here twice, about time I quit moving past it... I really like this - Ned964

58 Big Mamou - Waylon Jennings
59 Coward of the County - Kenny Rogers
60 Your Cheatin' Heart - Hank Williams
