didnt bob dylan write that?

anyway, im a huge johnny cash fan, id say some livelier songs are hey porter, i've been everywhere (i think its a cover, but his version is awesome), jackson (if you can find a girl to sing it with) and get rhythm (also needs female vocals).

if you're looking for some other lively country songs, try some alan jackson, chattahoochie is a particular favourie of mine.

hope that helps.

Personally I think 'Hurt' is one of the most emotional songs ever written.
#9
Sea of heartbreak?

I walk the line

This isn't Cash but try 'Speed of the sound of loneliness' - its pretty good to cover. And yeah, there are TONS of country artists (PAYCHECK!) who are also real good.
#10
Speed of the sound of loneliness is a John Prine tune... Cash has covered a huge number of songs in his long career, likely hundreds.
Do some listening.
#11
I agree, Hurt is an amazing song. Johnny Cash SO out-performed Nine Inch Nails with that song. I find it's a little ironic that he died soon after he recorded it... It's upsetting. It's as if he knew it was coming. Well, of course he did, but not like that soon. Hurt is a great and simple song to play, maybe during the middle of a set, to get people to chillax for a few minutes, then bring back the swinging country Could play Ring Of Fire
#12
Don't forget Ring of Fire and Folsom Prison Blues... Everyone plays them for a reason. If you do it right, people will listen to whatever you have to say after one of those.

I know you said you didn't want obvious ones, but, again, theres a reason everyone does them.

There are none. Johnny Cash = overrated, and rarely popular outside of the USA.

I agree with playing Hurt... I am learning that one now too and it is a very good song.. Very emotional too.. I love watching the video of him singing it.. Johnny Cash is by far one of my favorite guitarist

Deliahs dead ( not sure about spelling)
it is a really food song and there's plenty of room for modification if you want to do a whole different version, the song is aucoustic.

cocaine blues in the JC style, when the man comes around, gods going to cut you down is good if the audience is into it.

Exactly what I was going to say. Serious on the Cocaine Blues part too. That's probably one of his fastest, most uptempo songs. God's Gonna Cut You Down only really pulls off the whole effect if you have a full band behind you though, so if you're talking a solo acoustic performance, I'd shy away from it.
