* His tale of assembling a "[[TheAllegedCar custom]]" automobile in "One Piece at a Time". A worker steals pieces of a Cadillac every day for years on end... but doesn't account for the changes in model over the years. When he finally puts it all together, he winds up with a horrifying Frankencar that's some twenty-five different models at once, but somehow ''runs''.

Added DiffLines:

* "The One On The Right Is On The Left" is a cautionary ballad about how performers should leave their politics out of their music. The song describes a quartet whose members are mostly of widely diverging politics, leading the band to dissolve in an on-stage brawl. [[TheLastOfTheseIsNotLikeTheOthers Except for the One In The Back]], whose politics never come up, and ends up getting drafted by the end of the song.

* "Starkville City Jail", which references a real situation where Johnny went out for a walk while at a hotel in Starkville, Mississippi, unaware that the town had a curfew. He wandered around for a while picking flowers, but was eventually spotted by a police officer and jailed until the next morning.
-->"Well, I started pacing back and forth, and now and then I'd yell
-->And kick my forty dollar shoes against the steel door of my cell
-->I'd walk awhile and kick awhile, and all night nobody came
-->Then I sadly remembered they didn't even take my name
-->At eight a.m. they let me out, I said "Gimme them things of mine"
-->They give me a sneer and a guitar pick and a yellow dandelion
-->They're bound to get you, 'cause they've got a curfew
-->And you'll go to the Starkville City Jail

* Among Cash's many recordings, there exists one titled "Flushed from the Bathroom of My Heart".
* Cash occasionally inserted humorous comments into his live performances of "Rock Island Line" (in which he offered a definition for the song's reference to "pig iron" as meaning "slot machines), and the spoken-word section of "Orange Blossom Special".
