"I don't like it but I guess things happen that way," may have been the lyric that Louie Sulcer of Woodstock, Georgia set out to sing on Wednesday night, but a phone call from Apple CEO Steve Jobs thanking him for downloading "Guess Things Happen That Way" by Johnny Cash, the 10 billionth iTunes song, may have him switching to a more upbeat Cash tune before the week is out.

After winning a $10,000 iTunes gift card, he can certainly afford to indulge in a Johnny Cash's entire catalog.

Sulcer, a 71-year-old country music fan with an iPod Nano purchased by his children, couldn't believe it when Steve Jobs called him Wednesday to congratulate him on winning the iTunes 10 Billionth song contest.
