Thread Name: Fifty Songs Everyone Should Know
Subject: RE: Fifty Songs Everyone Should Know
I haven't seen any mention of:

Wreck of the Old 97
Engine 143 (The FFV)
Home on the Range
John Henry
Casey Jones
St. James Infirmary
Betty and Dupree
or any of a lot of others that I would put before recent pop stuff by the Beatles.

And that's leaving out a lot of the great "bad man" songs about Jesse Jame, Pretty Boy Floyd, and a host of others.
