"What Is Truth" is a song written and recorded by American country music artist Johnny Cash released in February 1970. Generally viewed as a protest song, a rarity in country music at the time, the criticism of the Vietnam War, and war in general, made the song a major crossover hit. The song peaked at number 3 on the BillboardHot Country Singles. It also became Cash's 12th Top 40 single on the Hot 100 chart, peaking at number 19, and his 2nd Top 10 single on the Adult Contemporary chart, peaking at Number 4. It also reached number 1 on the RPM Country Tracks chart in Canada.
