Ragged Old Flag by Johnny Cash
Released: Jan 1974
Label: Columbia/Legacy
Cash proves how confusing the early 1970s were by following up a heartfelt patriotic spoken word piece (tailored for Vietnam and the Watergate scandal) with a ditty about toxic pollution ruining a family fishing trip, and then spinning off with a standard truckin' number. From there you get upbeat praises to God and the story of a prisoner afraid to face the outside world.
