The Johnny Cash Collection: His Greatest Hits, Volume II The first of several appearances you'll see here. I think I have 8 of his albums, though it may be 7 and I'm too lazy to count at the moment. I do remember having this one on a 45 as a kid...and I never did meet any boys named Sue. But I was looking out for 'em...they's mean summybeeches
the lyrics to a boy named sue. its..... pretty good...

I posted "A Boy Named Sue" on my FB wall last night in honor of my dad, who had part of his ear cut off yesterday (skin cancer). The doctor's name was not Sue. Hope one of your albums in Now Here's Johnny Cash, because NOTHING gets you up in the morning like Johnny singing "Sugartime." (Yes, that "Sugartime.")

@JolietJake -- tsk. Love that Ring Of Fire album. "Remember the Alamo" and "The Big Battle" are great songs.

The Man in Black does the McGuire Sisters? That sounds like a hoot.

@chrissbergstrom No one in my family liked country, but I heard much of his stuff on radio, and I did quite a bit of hitchhiking back in the 70's...heard his stuff in many a big truck rolling down the roads

Grew up hearing Johnny Cash. My mom and dad were big fans. I never met a boy named Sue but I did meet boys named Evelyn and Beverly.

I think Johnny spoke to many of us, regardless of our preferred 'genre'

@chrissbergstrom He was widely admired by all types of musicians. Bono of U2 was a huge fan.

Johnny Cash was a very unique artist. His style and songs were so different that run-of-the-mill country artists.

I never listened to his music, but I remember my parents used to. Can't imagine naming a boy Sue, but I've heard a lot worse.

I think I might have been 7 or 8 when I first bought it (the 45)

I wasn't born yet when he sang his first hit. I just listened to his music via youtube and I would say, I wouldn't get tired of listening to his genre.

@JolietJake I see that. He's music is lovely actually. I was born when there was already westlife, back street boys, stevie wonder, whitney lol. But every stroke of his notes is making me listen for more. ahahah... Sad with the "Hurt" song he wrote though.

Johnny Cash!!! If I saw a boy named Sue, I'd probably punch him squarely in the nose the first chance I get.
