Johnny Cash sings a wide varierty of songs, but I would like to start with one of my favorite love songs.
This song always touches my heart about how he wants to get to know his son. I have the record of him singing in Folsom Prison.
I heard this song back in about 1977, and I`ve always kept thinking about it. It is so nice to find it now on the You Tube.
The same goes for this song. Thank you You Tube.
4. Oney – A Johnny Cash Variety Song
Here is an example of the type of variety of songs that Johnny Cash sang. Problems in the work place, that are very real.
When I first heard this song in about 1980, it made an impression on me. Love is more important than money.
I first heard this song on a TV tribute show for Johnny Cash, and loved it.
I am so glad to find this song on the You Tube. I heard it back in the seventies, and was shocked at the words. He relieved him of his pocket book, his blood and other things. His girlfriend was a rose just ripe for picking, and he nipped her in the bud.
8. I`ve got a thing about trains
I have always loved this one. My son rode on a train with me when he was little.
I have the Folsom recording.
He had a bad experience with his brother dying. Maybe that is why he sings the blues.
