Cash can sing a hell of a lot of songs better than anyone, but when it comes to heartbreak songs its Jones.

He's pretty damn good with the "solice in the bottle" theme, too. Perhaps it has something to do with personal experience...

Jones was a lot better before he dove into the bottle. Go back and get some of classic recordsing from the 50's and 60's like "Window Up Above", "Time Clock", etc.
