Any Old Wind That Blows is the 44th overall album by American country singer Johnny Cash, released on Columbia Records in 1973 (see 1973 in music). The album spawned three hits, most notably "Oney," which hit #2 on the country singles chart. The title track and Pete Seeger's "If I Had a Hammer" (previously a hit for Peter, Paul, and Mary) also charted. "Country Trash" was re-recorded by Cash nearly three decades later, on American III: Solitary Man. The album itself reached #5 on the country charts.
