The newest addition to the chord-section; “No, No, No“.
This song is featured on the “Carryin’ on with Johnny Cash and June Carter”, released in August 1967. It’s a short song, and the recorded version is only 1:52 – however Cash has many songs in that category.
And “No, No, No” is also written by Johnny Cash himself.
Fun fact regarding the album: Only seven months after the album was released, John and June got married!
It’s friday yet again, and the weekend has begun! What’s better than sitting down with a guitar on the lap and play some Johnny Cash tunes?

The last days there’s been one chord which has reached top three on the visit-counter: (Ghost) Riders in the sky!
This is a song Johnny Cash made a cover version of. The original song was written by Stan Jones in 1948, and has been recorded by at least 50 artists. Among my personal favourites (in addition to Johnny Cash of course) is the version performed by the Blues Brothers in the movie “Blues Brothers 2000”.
It has been said that Stan Jones wrote the song based on a story he heard as a kid. -Scary story for a kid..?
The chords to “Don’t take your guns to town” is the most visited page right now.
The single was released in December, 1958, and went straight to the top on US Billboards Hot Country Singles. The single actually stayed on top of the billboard for 6 weeks, and also made a respectable 32nd place on the Pop-charts.
Johnny Cash wrote the song himself, and as far as we know has the song only been covered by U2 (on the album Elevation).
Enjoy the chords!
Right now one of the most viewed chords are for the song Love’s been good to me.
Originally, this song was written by Rod McKuen. -One of the best-selling poets in America in the late ’60s. The song was first made popular by Frank Sinatra, when he made an album dedicated to McKuen-texts.
Johnny Cash recorded this song in 2003, and it was released in 2006 on the album American V: A Hundred Highways. The album-name reflects one of the lyric-lines in Love’s Been Good to me;
“I have been a rover. I have walked alone. Hiked a hundred highways. Never found a home”
Enjoy the chords!
The most popular chord today is the Kris Kristofferson song “Sunday Morning Coming Down“.
Johnny Cash once stated in an interview that he thought it was Roger Miller that wrote the song at first. -An artist and songwriter which was known for his sharp pen.
But the song was written, and recorded, of the great Kris Kristofferson. And he also “served” together with Cash in the group success The Highwaymen.
This is a fairly easy song to learn on the guitar, so go a head and give it a try!
