The White Stripes version is more captivating, they've managed to make a country song sounds pop !

I perfer the Mindy Smith's version with Dolly singing backup.

The White Stripes are an amazing duo - and much kudos to them for introducing a whole new generation of listners to some of country music's biggest talents (Loretta Lynn, Dolly Parton). Both versions are extraordinary, Dolly won out by a nose because she was both the singer and songwriter - and her ache is so excrutiating painful, however Jack White is an amazing artist!

Let's not beat about the bush, without Dolly Parton's version, the White Stripes version would have been meaningless. But Jack is so implausibly passionate, it has to be the Stripes. By a nose.

it sounds weird with a guy singing it, but both versions are really good. but, i like the stripes, so i vote them

Seen them both in concert.. White Stripes are more my thang...
But Dolly's voice more suited. Dolly by a whisker, but it was close.

Originally I prefeared the WS version, then a friend from Nederlanden sent me the original version. she was (and is) crazy for this version. so I can t choose.
