pull up your ol six-string

I just found an album of Johnny Cash and this insprired me to a now List. Top 10 Song sby Johnny Cash. And, man, this is way tougher than it sounds. He is the Godfather of Country Music and will be an Inspritation for artist for all time. Well, his musical style is not that challenging but his songs are always little stories. Really Greate. I always give some reasons for the position in my ranking. But that's not possible right here. I could easily name 30 Cash Songs which could make number 1. So it's just about my feelings, which is hard to describe.

#10 - 25 minutes to go
"The whole twon's waitin' just to hear me yell, I got 24 minutes to go ..."

#9 - with June Carter, Help me through the night
"Well, it's sad to be alone, help me make it through the night."

#8 - Man in Black
"Well, you wonder why I always dress in black. [...] I wear the black for the poor and beaten down, living in the hopeless hungry side of town ..."

#7 - Ring of Fire
"Love is a burning thing, and it makes a fire ring ..."

#6 - Walk the Line
"... because you're mine, I walk the line ..."

#5 - Sunday morning coming down
"... and the beer I had for breakfast wasn't bad do I had one more for dessert ..."

#4 - Personal Jesus
Because it's not an original Johnny Cash I feel like to explain this one. I hate Depeche Mode, but this song covered by Johnny Cash feels so greate, he made a whole new kind of feeling to this song. It's my number four because I really love him singing this song. Every music enthusiast will kill me for this cast but Johnny made all the emotions in this song touchable. So it's my number four. The next one is a Johnny original.

#3 - Ghost Rider in the Sky
"Jippie jay jey, Jippie jay joh"

#2 - Cocain blues
"I took a shot of cocain and I shoot my women down. I went right home and went to bed."

#1 - Folsom Prison Blues
"... I shot a man in Reno, just two watch him die ..."
