I know I'm late on this but when you were are talking about him a while back when he died I had not really listened to him much at all but finally got one of his cds over the weekend. Wish I had been listening to him for a long time. Did he write all his own songs? You just dont hear lyrics like his anymore. The cd I got is a greatest hits has Ring of Fire, One Piece at a Time, Folsom Prison Blues I forget what else but they are all pretty good songs.
