Good songs. Here's mine:

The Window Up Above - George Jones
Love's Gonna Live Here - Buck and his Buckaroos
Amazing Grace (Used to be her favorite song) - Amazing Rhythm Aces
Six Days on the Road - Dave Dudley (although I am partial to the Flying Burrito Brothers' version)
Ring of Fire - Johnny Cash
Pop a Top Again - can't remember who did the original, I like Alan Jackson's cover
The Devil's Right Hand - Steve Earle
The Grand Tour - George Jones
See You Later, I'm Gone - Marshall Tucker Band

Lots of honorable mentions for Willie, Waylon, Merle, Hanks I and II....but I gotta go with two songs in my Top 10 from the greatest country singer of them all.
