Artist: Johnny Cash
Album: The Sound of Johnny Cash
Song: "Mr. Lonesome"
The forgotten outlaw, Tompall Glaser, penned this dark tune—a sharpened dagger to the yearning soul. Songwriting this plainspoken is as timeless as the emotion it personifies. Add the heavy echo to Johnny Cash's iconic voice and behold an audible frown. You almost need to put your hands in jacket pockets to withstand the discernible cold.
