Don't Take Your Guns To Town - Johnny Cash (1958)
No matter the deserved acclaim of Johnny Cash's American Recordings' series, The Man In Black never sounded better than when he was singing his own work. It's impossible for me to pick a favorite from such a body of work. So, to keep with the previous post's western theme, I give you a gunfighter ballad from an American master. Cash's coolness factor will shine brighter than any of his contemporaries, disciples or new converts for centuries to come.
Such an odd style to cover this song in, but damn if Bono doesn't make it work!
