Which recording of "Cup of Loneliness" is used at the end of Mad Men season 2 episode 12, "The Mountain King", and where can I get it?

Every source says it's "Cup of Loneliness" by George Jones, but none of the Cup of Loneliness recordings I've found — George Jones or otherwise — sound the same. On the episode the version is faster and higher pitched than this version
, but the way the lines are sung (particularly "where the way is dark and dim") sound as though it's not simply the original sped up.
I don't have an online clip of the show, but if you've got it at home it's played as episode 2.12 closes to credits.
