Taylor Swift is only 22, but she's already completed four studio albums and toured the world many times over. She's also won over many skeptics who dismissed her as a prefabricated country ingenue when she first hit the scene back in 2006. Since then she's moved so gradually from country to pop that many fans barely realized what was happening. 

Her new album, Red, hits shelves next week, so we have a question for you: What is your favorite Taylor Swift song? Are you into the old-school country songs like "Teardrops on My Guitar," a sucker for "Love Story," or the hipster who only blasts "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together" when you think nobody is listening? Vote for whatever song you want, but please only vote a single time and just for one song.

“San Francisco Mabel Joy”

Mickey Newbury | 1969

A country-folk song of epic proportions, "San Francisco Mabel Joy" tells the tale of a poor Georgia farmboy who wound up in prison after a move to the Bay Area found love turning into tragedy. First released by Mickey Newbury in 1969, it might be more familiar through covers by Waylon Jennings, Joan Baez and Kenny Rogers. "It was a five-minute song written in a two-minute world," Newbury said. "I was told it would never be cut by any artist ... I was told you could not use the term 'redneck' in a song and get it recorded."
