The Sound of Johnny Cash is the thirteenth album by country singer Johnny Cash, released in 1962 (see 1962 in music). Among other songs, it contains "In the Jailhouse Now", a Jimmie Rodgers cover which reached No. 8 on the Country charts, and "Delia's Gone", which Cash would re-record years later, on American Recordings, in 1994. Cash would also go on to record a significantly slower version of "I'm Free from the Chain Gang Now", which was ultimately released in 2006 on American V: A Hundred Highways as the last track on the album.
