Answer:  Ring Of Fire

The song was originally recorded by June Carter's sister, Anita Carter.  After hearing Anita's version, Johnny Cash claimed he had a dream in which he heard the song accompanied by "Mexican horns".  He told Anita, "I'll give you about five or six months, and if you don't hit with that song, I'm gonna record it the way I feel it".  When the song failed to become a major hit for Anita, Cash recorded it his way, adding the mariachi-style horns.
