One Piece at a Time is an album by American country singer Johnny Cash, released on Columbia Records in 1976 (see 1976 in music). "One Piece at a Time," which was a #1 hit, is a humorous tale of an auto worker on the Detroit assembly line who puts together a car out of parts he swipes from the plant. "Sold Out of Flag Poles" also charted as a single, reaching #29 on the country singles charts. "Committed to Parkview", a Cash original, would be re-recorded in 1985 by Cash, Waylon Jennings, Kris Kristofferson and Willie Nelson, collectively known as The Highwaymen, on their first album, Highwayman; it is one of the few country songs sung from the perspective of a patient at a mental hospital.

"Go On Blues" was also recorded during the American Recordings session with Rick Rubin. It was not on the album but part of the promo single for "Delia's Gone".
