** "Streets of Laredo", recorded by Cash for one of his concept albums in the mid-1960s and a popular part of his TV show and live performances from the 1970s onward, is another example of a song that Cash made his own, despite it being a cover of a standard that had been recorded by many artists in the years before Cash did it, including is contemporary Creator/MartyRobbins.

** Believe it or not, Cash didn't write "Ring of Fire" or "A Boy Named Sue." The latter's true writer may come as a shock to some--it was none other than Creator/ShelSilverstein. And the co-writer of Ring of Fire? His future wife, June Carter. (In fact, it's often alleged that Carter wrote the song about her relationship with Cash, as both were married to other people at that point.)
