Jesse Bassfeller saddest lines in song (74* d) RE: saddest lines in song 10 Jul 19

It takes a few lines to really set it up, IMHO, and personal choices that end up with tragic results:

Empty winds, you hear her say
Fickle winds, they shift away
And I don't need him in my life for I can fly .
But who will walk her tonight out in the heather?
And who will laugh away the teardrop in her eye? - Bill Staines

But I was too free with all of the women,
And drink it was my friend on every occasion,
Her father he wants for riches and plenty,
And the man who could endow them with name and fortune,
Where all that I possess is my love for that wild mountain maid. - Al O'Donnell?   

Richard Thompson always does it for me when he sings:

See that lover standing
Staring at the ground
He's looking for the real thing
Lies were all he found
You can get the real thing
It will only cost a pound
Down where the drunkards roll
Down where the drunkards roll

Either than or:

Opps, I did again, I played with your heart, got lost in the game...
