“The Devil’s Right Hand” – Johnny Cash


Cash does a superlative cover of Steve Earle’s classic about loving guns a little too much. I love Earle’s original, but I prefer this much tougher, rockin’ arrangement.


“Highway Patrolman” – Johnny Cash


Another stellar cover of a song from Bruce Springsteen’s “Nebraska” album. I find it great that so many terrific artists have covered songs from this understated classic. Sean Penn based the script for his directorial debut “The Indian Runner” on this song.
