His songs are poetic, happy and sad at the time. I think his work is pure and beautiful art. Of course there are some happy songs you can enjoy but in my opinion his lyrics are very deep and thoughtful

A working man's musician and incredible lyrics and melodies, how he is not number one I do not know. In each song he fits the message that everyone else can only fit into an album. Bruce is the best.

Bob dylan then bruce end of story.

HOW is Bruce ranked so low? He connects with the human condition unlike anyone else, all in perfect poetry.

70 Johnny Cash Johnny Cash John R. "Johnny" Cash (1932-2003) was an American singer-songwriter, guitarist, actor, and author, who was widely considered one of the most influential musicians of the 20th century and one of the best-selling music artists of all time, having sold more than 90 million records worldwide. He died of more.

Not to be down on Johnny or anything because I am a huge fan but he wasn't that good a songwriter. Sunday Morning Coming Down was by the incomparable Kris Kristofferson, Hurt was by Trent Reznor, and Ring of Fire was actually written by his wife, June Carter Cash. I think he did write I Walk the Line and Folsom Prison Blues, though.
