Check out one of Johnny Cash’s early hit songs “Cry, Cry, Cry” in this fan-made video.
Everybody knows where you go when the sun goes down.
I think you only live to see the lights of town.
I wasted my time when I wouldn’t try, try, try.
When the lights have lost their glow you’re gonna cry,cry, cry.
In this clip from the Johnny Cash Show, Johnny is joined by Peggy Lee for a duet of the song “For The Good Times”.
Lay your head upon my pillow
Hold your warm and tender body close to mine
Hear the whisper of the rain drops flowing soft against the window
And make believe you love me one more time
For the good times
Don’t miss Johnny Cash performing “It Was Jesus” during an appearance on the Town Hall Party television broadcast.
Well a man walked down by Galilee so the Holy Book does say
And a great multitude was gathered there without a thing to eat for days
Up stepped a little boy with the basket please take it Lord he said
And with just a five loaves and two little fishes five thousand had fish and bread
Who was it everybody (it was Jesus) who was it everybody (it was Jesus)
Watch Johnny Cash give a live performance of the song “You Beat All I Ever Saw” from an episode of the Johnny Cash Show.
I’ve walked though every town
Saw fortunes lost and found
And when your trail failed i walked holes
In both my soles
But i don’t expect you back
You’re somewhere making tracks
I crossed the burning bridges
And walked through miles of sand
Met the lawless and the law
But you beat all i ever saw
Check out the song “A Cup of Coffee”, a collaboration between Johnny Cash and Ramblin’ Jack Elliot.
Man it sure is good to hear you singin’ and yodelin’ and pickin’ again Jack Elliot
I been drivin’ haulin’ load of grain all day long
Got about three more hundred miles to go
And well I just dropped in to have a cup of coffee friend
Yeah I just dropped in to have a cup of coffee friend
Don’t you offer me none of that whiskey don’t need no wine
Gotta get that semi down the line
In this rare clip from The Tennessee Ernie Ford Show, Johnny Cash joins Ford for a duet of the song “Pickin Time”.
I got cotton in the bottom land
It’s up and growin’ and I got a good stand
My good wife and them kids of mine
Gonna get new shoes, come Pickin’ Time
Get new shoes come Pickin’ Time.
Ev’ry night when I go to bed
I thank the Lord that my kids are fed
They live on beans eight days and nine

Have a look at this fan-made video for Johnny Cash’s 1968 song “You And Tennessee”
Like a sweet rippling mountain stream
Goes the sound of the banjo on Cripple Creek
Never beginning never ending just rippling on and on
So does the land just ripple on and on
As a heart gets soft on a woman so can the heart get soft on the land
And to fall in love with a woman as well as the land is to surely be in love
In this video, Johnny Cash gives a live performance of the song “Sam Stone”. This song was originally performed by John Prine.
Sam Stone came home,
To his wife and family
After serving in the conflict overseas.
And the time that he served,
Had shattered all his nerves,
And left a little shrapnel in his knee.
But the morphine eased the pain,
And the grass grew round his brain,
And gave him all the confidence he lacked,
With a Purple Heart and a monkey on his back.
