Dead Flowers by Townes Van Zandt

Dead Flowers is one of my favorite songs by The Rolling Stones. It's one of their "honky-tonk" blues/country tunes that has chilling yet powerful lyrics. 

Due to the nature of the song, it's easy to cover it in lots of different ways. I personally tend to finger pick the instrumental part and then sing it in my more "twangy" and raspy voice. I got that from Townes Van Zandt's cover of the song, which was featured in the cult classic film The Big Lebowski. Here's a video with that cover version:
