You're probably wondering what on earth I could possibly like more than "Sunday Morning Coming Down," yesterday's entry in my list of 25 favorite Johnny Cash songs. Remember, these aren't what I consider "best," but rather my favorites. #4: I Still Miss Someone Here are two shockers for you about this song. One, it was never a single. It was the B-side of "Don't Take Your Guns to Town." Two, despite the fact that it was never a single, it's one of Cash's most covered songs. Linda Ronstadt, Dolly Parton, and Bob Dylan are among the acts who've done the song. It's a deceptively upbeat song about a man who has broken up with a girl. The title says it all, but the music doesn't seem to coordinate with the down nature of the lyrics. Most people who have covered this song have done it much slower than Cash did, because only Johnny Cash could get away with an upbeat lost love song. I Still Miss Someone Written by Johnny Cash and Roy Cash From The Fabulous Johnny Cash, 1958 Here's Johnny doing a very popular non-hit co-written by his nephew:
