This is my all time favorite song by Johnny Cash! I heard the JC version first so a while back I looked up the original. When I listened to the Soundgarden original for the first time, honestly I hated it. I've gone back again to listen to it for this post and I will say I don't hate it now, however I still believe the Johnny Cash version is A LOT better. For Soundgarden I don't really like the grunge sound for it and the music doesn't really seem to stand out (or have a life of its own) like it does for Johnny Cash. The cover song is a lot more polished and organized than the original, I love the use of the acoustic guitar, and I especially love the breakdown towards the last half of the song.
