When it comes to Johnny Cash, how can you pick your favorite songs, right? They're all good. But, I took the challenge and re-listened to a lot of Johnny Cash songs to find some of my favorites. And, listening to a bunch of his songs, it's impossible to deny that he was a legend. It definitely says something about an artist when years and years after they have recorded their music, people are still listening, with new generations discovering the songs as well. Today, I would like to share with you my Top 5 Favorite Johnny Cash Songs.

"Highwayman"

 
 

Now, I know I may be cheating with this song because it's not just a solo Johnny Cash song, but, it's just such a great song I had to add it to the list. The version of the song in the video is from a 1985 Farm Aid concert. It's just so good. Clearly, Johnny steals the show in the video.

"Tennessee Flat Top Box"

 
 

I remember hearing this song from when I was a little kid. So, it's on the list for not only nostalgia, but because it's a great song. This song was released back in 1961. And, later on, in 1987, Johnny's daughter Rosanne Cash recorded it. Here's her version.

"Rusty Cage"

 
 

This song, originally by the band Soundgarden in 1992, was covered by Johnny Cash back in 1996 for Johnny's "Unchained" album. It's a great country and rock mix. The electric guitars give it that rock feel and Johnny gives it a country touch. Great cover.

"Walk the Line"

 
 

Again, another very, very popular and well-known Johnny Cash song coming in at number one is Walk the Line. According to Wikipedia, "In 2004, Rolling Stone ranked the song at #30 on their list of the 500 Greatest Songs of All Time."
