    My favourite is one of his less known songs called here was a man

    Here was a man a man who was born in a small village the son of a peasant woman

    He grew up in another small village

    Until he reached the age of thirty he worked as a carpenter

    Then for three years he was a traveling minister

    But he never traveled more than two hundred miles from where he was born

    And where he did go he usually walked

    He never held political office he never wrote a book never bought a home

    Never had a family he never went to college and he never set foot inside a big city

    Yes here was a man

    Though he never did one on the things usually associated with greatness

    He had no credentials but himself he had nothing to do with this world

    Except through the devine purpose that brought him to this world

    While he was still a young man the tide of popular opinion turned against him

    Most of his friends ran away one of them denied him

    One of them betrayed him and turned him over to his enemies

    Then he went through the mockery of a trial

    And was nailed to a cross between two thieves

    And even while he was dying his executioners gambled

    For the only piece of property that he had in this world

    And that was his robe his purple robe

    When he was dead he was taken down from the cross

    And laid in a borrowed grave provided by compassionate friends

    More than nineteen centuries have come and gone

    And today he's a centerpiece of the human race

    Our leader in the column to human destiny

    I think I'm well within the mark when I say that all of the armies that ever marched All of the navies that ever sailed the seas

    All of the legislative bodies that ever sat and all of the kings that ever reigned

    All of them put together have not affected the life of man on this earth

    So powerfully as that one solitary life

    Here was a man (joy to the world the Lord is come)

    I love "One piece at a time", it's a funny song, and it always brings a smile to my face.

    However, there isn't a Johnny Cash song that I don't like, they are all really good, and his voice made each song stand out from the country crowd.

    get rythm is a favorite, its so catchy. :)

    Hey, get rhythm when you get the blues

    Hey, get rhythm when you get the blues

    A jumpy rhythm makes you feel so fine

    It'll shake all the troubles from your worried mind

    Get rhythm when you get the blues

    A Little shoeshine boy never gets low down

    But he's got the dirtiest job in town

    Bendin' low at the peoples' feet

    On the windy corner of the dirty street

    Well, I asked him while he shined my shoes

    How'd he keep from gettin' the blues

    He grinned as he raised his little head

    Popped a shoeshine rag and then he said

    Get rhythm when you get the blues

    Hey, get rhythm when you get the blues

    It only costs a dime, just a nickel a shoe

    Does a million dollars worth of good for you

    Get rhythm when you get the blues

    Hey,get rhythm when you get the blues

    Yeah , get rhythm when you get the blues

    It's a jumpy rhythm makes you feel so fine

    It'll shake all your troubles from your worried mind

    Get rhythm when you get the blues

    Well, I sat down to listen to the shoeshine boy

    And I thought I was gonna jump for joy

    Slapped on the shoe polish left and right

    He took a shoeshine rag and he held it tight

    He stopped once to wipe the sweat away

    I said you're a mighty little boy to be-a workin' that way

    He said I like it with a big wide grin

    Kept on a poppin' and he said again

    Get rhythm when you get the blues

    Hey, get rhythm when you get the blues

    Get a rock'n'roll feelin' in your bones

    Taps on your toes and get gone

    Get rhythm when you get the blues

    a tough question...

    For a ballad...Ira Hayes...(Ira was one of the men who raised the flag on Iwo Jima)

    For comedy...One Piece At A Time. Just good country music

    For in-between...This Ragged Ol Flag.... Beautifully done.

    Of them all, I have to vote for Ira Hayes.
