I've Been Everywhere and Walk the Line. But Walk the Line wins for me today

I think his cover of "Hurt" is the best he's covered and would prolly be a song he would've written (if he were Trent Reznor's age/generation).

I actually like his songs covered by other people. Social Distortion's cover of "Ring of Fire" is awesome.

I saw them perform that in concert many, many years ago when that album came out

My favorite is (Ghost) Riders In The Sky

My vote goes to "Ring of Fire."

I chose Folsom Prison. Though I also love the hangman countdown song... *9 more minutes to go!* and Don't bring your guns to town is a gorgeous song as well.

Really though, Ring of Fire is what you always end up singing with friends it seems....

True. His cover of hurt is amazing. Have you watched the video? It's so incredibly creepy and haunting.

You took the words right out of my mouth. I love his cover of Hurt, and I love Social Distortion's cover of Ring of Fire. Cash also did a cover of One (U2 song) that is really good.

My favorite Cash song actually isn't a Cash song, technically. It's "Highwayman" performed by the supergroup The Highwaymen (which included Kris Kristofferson, Waylon Jennings and Willie Nelson).

I also love "A Boy Named Sue" because it was written by Shel Silverstein

.....and "Sunday Morning Comin' Down" though that's technically not a Cash song either, his was a cover (Kris Kristofferson did the original).

Every single one of them!! All for very different reasons. Hurt is amazing, Jackson with his wife, June was special. Um...I could keep going, but I won't bore you guys.

Hurt. The song was played at my Dad's funeral and reminds me of him a lot.

Folsom Prison Blues. Actually, I prefer a slower version than the original.

Of the ones in the poll, "Don't Take Your Guns to Town". However, "I Got Stripes" is probably my favorite one that's not in the poll.

Really, I'm the first one for "Ain't No Grave". Maybe Social Distortion should cover it.

Now that you mention it, I have heard of that cover! Considering what that song is about, I wonder how sensitive Cash really was.

@Miss Voluptuous - YES! Great video!

I like a lot on that list but absolutely love "Folsom Prison Blues" I'll just sit in the car and sing it all the time and tick people off because it gets the song stuck in their head and we don't have any of his albums, lol.

Thirteen! Hands down!

The American Recordings album is, in my opinion, one of the best albums EVER recorded! That album turned everything upside down for me.
